This reindeer gnome garland is one of the CUTEST Christmas crafts I’ve made – ever. It is soo adorable and pretty quick to come together with the help of one of my favorite craft “cheats.”
Reindeer Gnome Garland
Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, we love Christmas and gnomes, so it makes sense that I adore making my own DIY Christmas gnomes. These two things naturally just come together sometimes in a wildly whimsical way that can’t be denied. If you’re digging the gnome-craze or you just love Christmas, this awesome DIY garland with gnomes dressed as reindeer is perfect.
And, the best part is, all those little bitty cuts and whatnot? Made those on my Cricut, so I could make a million of these little gnome reindeer in the time it would take me to cut one. If you DO NOT have a Cricut, look for stickers at the craft store during the holiday season – I’ve seen the reindeer names before.
If you’re ready to get the world most adorable handmade garland on your Christmas tree, let’s get started.

Tips to Make a Reindeer Garland
- Get the gnome reindeer garland pattern here. If you would like a cutting machine like a Cricut or Silhouette to do the work, get the gnome reindeer garland SVG set here.
- Let’s talk about cinnamon sticks. That looks like a lot of cinnamon sticks, but it’s not. I just bought one package of cinnamon sticks at the craft store, cut each into 3 pieces, and wrapped three of them in twine. You can grab some crafting cinnamon sticks here so you don’t have to buy food-grade ones (cheaper).
- Take your time – the entire took about 45 minutes from start to finish. I know that is on the “long end of the craft spectrum” for me, so if you need a break, take it.
- If you have never cut faux fur before or you’ve hated how it turned out, don’t worry. Flip over the fur and, with a razor blade or Exacto knife, cut only the fabric backing into a triangle shape (make sure the fur’s pile is pointed straight down). Pull the cut piece away from the whole and this will leave you with a beautiful drape on the beard. If you’re a visual learner, learn how to cut fur in this quick tutorial.
