Hocus Pocus Gnomes
Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, we are a little bit obsessed with our favorite Halloween movie, Hocus Pocus. I seriously love Bette Midler and this movie is a cherry on top of her already stellar career. So, it was obvious when I wanted to make a Halloween gnome, of course I’d try my hand at making Hocus Pocus Gnomes. But, I will admit, this is my second round of making gnomes in honor of this movie. You can check out the first try here, which is fun and great, but these no-sew halloween sock gnomes are quite superior.
Simple, but really fun, these witch gnomes are are a quick craft with really stunning results. If you’re ready to make a wicked Halloween gnome (or three) you’re going to love, let’s get started.

Tips to Make these No-Sew Witch Gnomes
- First, start by grabbing the trio of socks here that you need to make these adorable Sanderson Sisters gnomes here. The sock is everything about this no-sew gnome craft, because you need long, tall and stripey to pull this off. You’ll need one green and black, one pink and black, and one purple and black.
- If you’ve seen any of my other gnomes, you’ll notice that the noses on these witch gnomes are markedly different than my norm. They’re polymer clay formed into some long, witchy noses, like the noses on Winifred, Mary and Sarah (ok her nose is mostly normal, if a little larger LOL!). If you’ve never used polymer clay, it’s super easy. All you need to do is take it out of the package, mold it to whatever shape you want, smooth it a little, then bake in the oven per the package directions. I have tons of clay tutorials on my YouTube channel here.
- I made all three of these gnomes no-sew gnomes by using hot glue to make all the necessary hems (even though there are very few). It’s my honest recommendation that you use a fabric hot glue stick like these or my favorite brand of non-fabric glue here.
- Last little tip: I made those crazy signature hair-dos for the Sanderson Sisters gnomes by watercolor-painting some crinkle faux fur like this here. Seriously, that’s it. Once the fur was painted, it was just styling. No real fuss or anything!
