Make a Jack Frost Gnome for Winter
A cool wind blew through this week and inspired me to make a Jack Frost gnome. I’m not saying winter is here yet, but cooler weather is coming and this winter tomte is perfect for ushering it in.
This gnome is assembled in less than 30 minutes and comes with a free gnome pattern. Just look at those long, skinny legs!
Jack Frost Gnome
Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, I think winter is a special time that has a little magic to it. Everyone is bundled up and staying cozy, sure, but there is a quiet that comes over the outdoors that is just lovely.
When the weather cooled off, I felt the need to try to hurry the winter along by making this fun Jack Frost gnome.

Tips to Make a Winter Gnome Idea
- Click here to get the free gnome pattern for this awesome winter gnome. If you want to try it free hand you absolutely can. The template might just be a good guide for you.
- If you do not want to make the snowflake with hot glue, use two identical stickers pressed sticky-side-to-sticky-side. You’ll get the same effect as the hot glue snowflake. I had initially planned to use these cute snowflake stickers I found, but then I got distracted and forgot I had them.
- I love using felt because it’s such a forgiving fabric. You can trim-up anything that looks a little wonky. Felt doesn’t fray, either, and it’s easy to hot glue. One thing important to note: if you use hot glue with felt, be careful not to press the fabric together as the hot glue will bleed through.
- The faux fur I used on this winter gonk was Mongolian in frosted gray for the gnome beard and frosted white for the accents.
- Gnome noses can be any number of items: rolled polymer clay balls, wood beads, wood rounds, fabric stuffed with fill, pom poms – anything.

So cute!! Where is the best place to get the Mongolian fur?
I have picked it up from Amazon and from a local fabric store. Sadly, I’ve never been to a JoAnn’s fabric who has this type of faux fur, but there are tons they do have which would work.
I’m also working on a tutorial to partially color fur (instead of all-over as we did for the Grinch gnome).
I want to say that you make adorable gnomes and I am printing out everything I can to try and do them. I so very much appreciate the patterns and directions you provide.
I’m so glad you lie them, Patsy. I sure to have a lot of fun making all of these little gnomes. :)
