Tips to Make a Santa Gnome from Dollar Tree Supplies
- If you prefer a larger nose, you can use a larger wood round. But be careful not to go too oversized, because the material for the body is not very absorbent and won’t bond with the glue very strongly. So you will want to find a nose that’s very light, even if it is larger than the wood bead I selected.
- To cut your beard, take care to flip the fur over, exposing the fabric side and cutting the fabric only with a craft knife or razor blade. This will keep from cutting the fur and will give you that long, luscious look.
- Want to give your gnome a little different hat style? Try a sock instead of the Santa hat! you’ll have a little glowing belly gnome with a sock hat for a whole different look!
