Flower Gnome Pattern

Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, we adore making gnomes for other people. But, I have a confession: sometimes I just want a gnome for myself. And for the longest time, I’ve been wanting a spring gnome that could be nothing but spring-alicious. Hence a big-ole head full of flowers. A beautiful, fun bouquet of peonies all for ME! Maybe it’s odd, but I adore this gnome. And the fact that it’s no-sew and in a giant flower pot? I love it.


The best part is that it’s the perfect no-sew gnome pattern for beginners because it’s incredibly forgiving. You could mess-up in a ton of ways and this little tomte would still look perfect. If you’re ready, grab your favorite flower pot and let’s get started.

Tips to Make This No-Sew Gnome pattern

  • Grab the Wild Gnome Pattern here which features the detailed instructions for making this nisse. But, surprise for you, not only is the flower gnome featured in this set of patterns, but there are SIX more gnomes detailed using this same pattern. Each more fun than the last. There’s a pine cone hat gnome, a mushroom gnome, a succulent gnome (I cannot wait to share this one!!!), a butterfly gnome, and a moss hat gnome in addition to this flower hat gnome. It’s the perfect inspiration for any “wild” gnome! LOL!
  • If you’re like me and have no interest in making cuts for all these gnomes – or you want to batch out making a ton of gnomes at once, click here to grab a set of cut files with the Wild Gnome Pattern to use with your Cricut or Silhouette. It’s a scissors-free gnome pattern! LOL!
  • I found both the flower pot and the peonies at my local craft store, but the honest truth is that you could use ANY pot and almost any small flower set. If you want my exact pot, you can grab a trio of these tall metal pots here. Even Dollar Tree should have small flowers and a pot that would work. So, don’t over think it – anyone could make this gnome!
  • Let’s talk about that beard for a second. If beards are what’s holding you up on making your first gonk, don’t let it hold you up any more. It’s actually really easy to cut the fur – and not leave it squared off and weird. Just flip it over and use a craft knife on the fabric backing. Check out this quick and easy video here that I made to help you!

Active Time 20 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes
Difficulty Easy
Estimated Cost $5



  • Hot Glue Gun & Glue
  • Scissors
  • Razor Blade or Craft Knife
  • Funnel
  • Pencil or Fabric Marker, optional


  1. Cut the body shape from the fleece fabric and fold it in half right-side to right-side. Hot glue the two tabs together and allow the glue to cool completely.
  2. Alight two of the three curved bumps on the top of the gnome and hot glue ONE SIDE of the two aligned curved bumps together, meaning hot glue the two bumps together from the topmost point to the base only on 1/2 of the bump.
  3. Hot glue the base onto the bottom of the body shape. Allow the glue to cool completely.
  4. Turn the body right side out and fill about halfway full with Poly Beads, stuffing the remaining portion of the body with Poly Fill. Hot glue hem the top closed by pinching the open bumps together, with hot glue between them. Allow the hot glue to cool completely.
  5. To make the hat, cut one cap hat shape from the fleece fabric and fold it in half, right-side to right-side. Hot glue the two sides together. Allow the hot glue to cool completely.
  6. Turn the hat right side out. Fill the hat with a little Poly Fill - just enough to help hold the hat shape up off the gnome's head. photo collage tutorial of how to make a flower pot gnome
  7. Place your faux fur face down and, using your razor blade or craft knife, cut the fabric backing only into the shape you want for the beard. Hot glue the beard onto the front of the gnome. Allow the hot glue to cool completely.
  8. Part the beard fur to the fabric about 1/2 inch below the top of the beard. Add a fair amount of hot glue then place the nose on top. Allow the hot glue to cool completely.
  9. Place the hat onto the gnome's head, tucking the hat over his nose in a cute wrinkle. Hot glue this in place. Hot glue the back of the hat in place, pulling it low to open up the face and add character. If you plan to add arms do so now.
  10. Cut the heads off of each of the flowers, trimming the stems as close to the bud as you can to reduce the amount that the flowers stick out from the hat. photo collage tutorial of how to make a flower gnome in a pot
  11. Hot glue the flower heads onto the top of the hat, covering it in its entirety.
  12. You can display the gnome as-is or you can make the flower pot by adding floral foam to the flower pot and covering it with a little moss and a few more flowers. Then simply set the flower gnome on top. photo collage tutorial of how to make a gnome with a flower hat in a pot
