Mini Farmhouse Gnome Pattern
Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, we have such a good time decorating, making unique DIY crafts, and just having fun in the craft room. When I first made my little kissing gnomes, I knew I needed a simple, classic farmhouse gnome couple to adorn my “non-holiday” farmhouse tiered tray. Such a quick work-up, this pattern turned out to be so cute, I have actually made several, but this set, it’s special and sweet and all things farmhouse charming!
Not only do their hats make a loose heart together, but their little noses come together with magnets to make them all kissy-face. Perfectly sized for a farmhouse tiered tray, they’re just exactly what I wanted. If you’re ready to make a great kissing gnome couple that you can display with any farmhouse decor, let’s get started.

- 1/8 yard Patterned Black Buffalo Check Cotton Fabric (for second hat) (I found mine at Joanne's craft store)
- Mongolian Faux Fur (I used some brown fur I got from the craft store and some dyed yellow fur from a prior craft)
- Small Amount of Poly-Fill
- 1 cup Poly-Beads
- 2 Round 3/4-inch Magnets (for noses)
- 1/8 yard Beige Premium Felt Fabric (for noses)
- White Embroidery Thread
- 1 Chenille Wire
- Hot Glue Gun & Glue
- Razor Blade or Craft Knife
- Wire Cutters
- Sewing Machine, optional
- Parchment Paper
- To make the guy gnome, cut two body shapes from the solid black felt, place them right-side-to-right-side then hot glue hem the curved tip part of the body, stopping well before the body straightens.
- Flip the loose body pieces right-side-out, fold the pointy tip of the body down and then fold the two loose sides of the body back around the tip, right-side to right-side. Finish hot gluing the two sides together leaving a 1-2 inch section un-glued on the top on one side.
- Cut one circle base shape from the solid black felt fabric and affix it to the bottom of the body shape with hot glue, then turn the entire body shape right-side out.
- Fill the gnome body with poly-beads followed by poly-fill. Fit half of a chenille wire into the pointy part of the body shape to help it hold it's curve, then hot glue hem the remaining opening in the body closed.
- Cut two hat shapes form the black buffalo check patterned fabric, place them right-side to right-side then hot glue hem the curved pointy tip part of the hat, stopping well before the hat straightens.
- Flip the loose pieces of the hat right-side-out, fold the pointy tip of the hat down and then fold the two loose sides of the hat back around the tip, right-side to right-side. Finish hot gluing the two sides of the hat together.
- Hot glue hem the hat's edge with a thin hem, then pull the hat over the tip of the body shape.
- Add a very small amount of poly-fill and one of the magnets to the center of a 2-inch diameter circle cut from the beige felt. Wrap the felt piece snugly around the poly-fill and magnet then hot glue it in place on the back side of the magnet.
- Cut the beard shape from the Mongolian fur using a craft knife on the back side only of the fur, cutting only the fabric backing Hot glue the beard to the front of the gnome, then hot glue the nose to the beard, where marked on the pattern.
- Tuck the hat down over the nose about halfway and hot glue it in place. Additionally, add a dab of hot glue to the back of the gnome, pulling the hat down low on the gnome's back to open up the face a little.
- Make a second gnome but, use the solid yellow felt for the body and the yellow buffalo check patterned fabric for the hat. Additionally, instead of a beard, make two little ponytails (very little) from the yellow faux fur and attach them on either side of the gnome body. When you bring the two gnomes close to one another, the magnets will bring them together for a smooch!
These mini magnetic gnomes stand 4 1/2 inches tall, whether sewn or no-sew methods are used to construct them.
