Gnome Jar Wrap – An Easy and Quick Gnome Craft
Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, I am inspired by so many things I see at craft stores. ‘Normal’ items are displayed in a way which triggers your brain to start putting things together: paint, brushes, and wood in a holiday display, for example.
But what about placemats? Stay with me… The thing I love about pre-made placemats is that they usually have two different fabrics: the fancy side and the plain side. Well, we’re going to use both to make the easiest Christmas gnome craft ever. Let’s get started.

Tips for Making a Gnome Treat Jar
- Get a contrasting-sided placemat and your work is basically done for you. :) If you can’t find one, determine a way to delineate the body from the hat: a ribbon trim, decorative stitching, etc.
- Make sure the wrap fits the body snuggly. This is the part which will stay on the gnome so we want it secure.
- For the hat, it should be loose so that it is easy to slip on and off. Adding a bit extra in the hem allowance is the best way to do this.
- I used Velcro® sticky-back for fabric ovals for this project, however, you can use the strips, as well. Just make sure you use the sticky backed ones for fabric.
- I used a larger jar for this project (picked up at the Dollar General) which is just bigger than the quart mason jar. That would work very well for this project, too.
