Tips to Make This Easy Sock Gnome
- First, try not to overthink this. You’re putting a flower pot on a gnome’s head. And the gnome is basically going to be all but covered up with the pot and beard, so, to make this simple, I decided to go for a sock gnome. Nothing but quick and super easy for this gnome set.
- One of the best parts about making nisse is the noses. I generally like to make little gnome noses with anything round and nearby that fits that specific gnome. Whether I come across a wooden ball or a clay bead, then that’s what it’s going to be – and you can find so many things that will work. However, my go-to is wood beads like these, though, because of their consistency in both color and shape, making them a quick choice.
- If the idea of making gnomes gives you some anxiety because of the adorably fancy beard, beat that intimidation back! Even if you’ve never touched a gnome before, you can still get a flowy, lush beard without any issues. All you do is flip the fur over with fur flat down on your table, exposing the fabric. Then with a straight-razor or craft knife, cut the fabric only. Then you can just gently pull the beard from the remainder fur and pop it on your gnome!
- I got almost everything I needed to make this gnome at my local Dollar Tree. Everything is handy there, pretty typical items, but most craft stores also have all of these items, so just look around – you’re sure to find what you need!
