A great farmhouse fall project, this easy scarecrow gnome pattern is a cute and whimsical addition to your decor.

Active Time 30 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes
Difficulty Easy
Estimated Cost $3



  • Hot Glue Gun & Glue (note: hot glue sticks for fabric do exist and should be used, if possible)
  • Scissors
  • Razor Blade or Craft Knife
  • Funnel
  • Pencil or Fabric Marker, optional
  • Wire Cutters
  • Needle and Thread
  • Sewing Machine, optional


  1. Cut out the hat shape from the burlap fabric and hot glue hem all the way around the hat shape so that the burlap doesn't unravel. Set aside to allow the glue to cool completely.
  2. Cut out the body shape, base, two feet and two sole shapes from the felt fabric. Fold the body shape in half, right-side to right-side and pin where noted, hemming per the pattern, leaving the body open where noted. Pin the base shape onto the bottom of the body and hem it in place. how to make boots for a pattern for a scarecrow gnome for autumn
  3. While the body is still wrong-side out, pinch together the marked dart locations on the base shape and pin in place. Hem each dart as noted on the pattern.
  4. Fold the shoe shapes in half and pin each of them together the back, then hem the seam. Pin the sole of the shoes onto each shoe then hem them in place.
  5. Turn the body and right side out as well as the two shoes. photo collage tutorial of how to make a scarecrow gnome pattern
  6. Add about 1/2 cup of poly beads to the bottom of the gnome body. Fill the remaining portion of the body with polyfill. Tuck the wire inside the gnome’s body. Hand-stitch the body closed.
  7. Cut the faux fur into a beard shape and hot glue the beard to the gnome on the front. Part the faux fur and hot glue the nose in place. Allow the glue to cool completely.
  8. Fold the hat shape in half, wrong-side to wrong-side. Hot glue the long edge together, then allow the hot glue to cool completely.
  9. Add half-unraveled bits of burlap to the open brim of the hat, to give it a definitive scarecrow look. Cut 2-4 holes in the hat, then carefully hot glue a scrap of buffalo check fabric to the inside of the hat to patch each hole. photo collage tutorial of how to make a fall gnome pattern
  10. Tuck the hat down over the body. Hot glue the hat down over the nose, creating a little wrinkle or scrunch to the fabric. Hot glue the hat down in the back and around the sides. Allow the hot glue to cool completely.
  11. Fill each shoe with a bit of stuffing and hand-stitch the open edge of the ankle section closed, leaving the shoe opening open. Fold-over about 1/4-inch of the hem into the opening of the boot, then hot glue each of the boots in place on either side of the gnome's body. Then get ready to display your gnome because he's done! photo collage tutorial of how to make an autumn gnome pattern

  1. Hi Sara, I have a couple questions please.
    1. Where can I find that exact fur name and location of the faux fur for the beard of the scarecrow with the burlap hat?
    3. For your dollar tree fall pumpkin gnomes, I cannot locate the mold for the feet. The link takes me to a etsy site that shows sold out.


    1. Hi there, Tracy. For the pumpkin feet, I am so sorry, I can’t control if she’s sold out. You can look on Amazon for different molds, though – they work the same way: press the clay in, de-mold, and bake. A lot of people in the Facebook group use a pink set made for fondant / cakes.
      As for the fur, it was purchased at Joann’s craft store on the bolt (the fabric rolls). It’s a shaggy, multi-color (brown with black tips) but I don’t have a name, nor can I find it online. I have much better luck going into the stores to see their fur offerings.
