Tips to Make Gnome Ornaments for Christmas
- Click here to get the mitten gnome ornament pattern.
- I like to make my gnome noses from a variety of things. Sometimes it’s wood beads, sometimes buttons. But this time it was polymer clay. Why did I pick clay to make this gnome’s nose? Because it had to be tiny and I already had the oven on to do another clay baking project. Also, the wood beads were in their box buried under a pile of other crafting supplies. #lazycrafter
- Grab a festive embellishment for the hat. If you want to embroider a snowflake into the front of the hat, go for it! I like to grab a pre-made bauble like these pretty poinsettia flowers. Fast, easy and super cute!
- I made this entire gnome a no-sew pattern by using hot glue to make all my hems. But you could use a sewing machine.
- If you’ve never cut Mongolian fur before, do not just go after it with scissors. You’ll ruin the drape and be super sorry. But, if you flip the fur over and cut the fabric only with an exacto knife, you’ll be able to save the fur and it’ll look great!
- Don’t affix any of the fuzzy material under the beard, cut it just short of that so the beard can fall nicely without pushing out.
