Tips to Make a July 4th Dollar Tree Gnome
- To make any gnome quickly, like with baking, grab all of your supplies and lay them out on your work surface, including all of the tools you plan to use. I always waste a ton of time when I’m not prepared before I start stuffing a sock and getting all crafty.
- Let’s get real about the most fun part of a gnome – those fluffy, gorgeous gnome beards. Typically, I reach for a luxe faux fur. But, to be honest, Dollar Tree isn’t rife with lush fur options. Ever. That being said, you can just get creative with what they do have! I found a furry pillow that had a beard-ish texture in NAVY (woohoo!) at my store. So, look around, grab anything that is passable for a beard – maybe a fluffy sock, a mop–or dusters!
- My plan was to make this as a no-sew gnome, but the truth is that you could make this exact same gnome by sewing. So, whichever is easiest for you, grab your tools and have at it.
