Mason Jar Lid Gnome Ornament
Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, we are all about the farmhouse Christmas tree this year.

So I started by making this adorable mason jar lid gnome ornament.
This is a super fast DIY tomte tutorial. You can literally have it done in 20 minutes (or way less) from the moment you decide until you’re hanging it on the Christmas tree. If you’re ready to get a Christmas tree gnome ornament made for your tree, well, let’s get started.

Tips to Make a Christmas Tree Gnome Ornament
- This mason jar lid gnome ornament is super small. So, when you’re making your nose (or finding a wood bead to be your gnome nose), you need to go small. Now go smaller. Yeah, once more, make it smaller. I literally had to remake my clay nose multiple times until I go it small enough.

- If you’ve never cut Mongolian fur before, don’t grab your scissors. You’ll cut through all of the fur and be really sad because it won’t be long and fluffy. Grab an Exacto knife instead. Then flip the fur over (I know, it’s counter-intuitive, but do it). Then, using the knife, cut through the fabric portion of the fur. I have a quick video tutorial to learn how to cut faux fur here.
