Such a simple craft for St. Patty’s day, the kiddo really loved it and while she helped me assemble, we really got to share some time talking about the story of Saint Patrick and his role in the legends of Ireland. And snakes–she told me all about his apparent “thing” with snakes. LOL!

Tips to Make a Gnome St. Patricks Day Garland

  • I love how rustic and fun the burlap looks, but you do not have to make your gnome garland from burlap. Experiment with other fabrics, card stock paper or craft foam. They’ll all work pretty well.
  • Definitely keep your gnome as simple as possible. I added the little belt buckle and thought about adding a tiny green clover stuck there with the buckle. But as I thought about it more, I realized that it was getting too complex if I did that–so I just stuck with the buckle itself.
  • If you don’t like the way that the burlap looks unraveled on the edges, you can run a line of hot glue around the triangle shape and fold over the edges. This will make a bit of a hem and keep the burlap from unraveling completely.

Prep Time 5 minutes
Active Time 15 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes
Difficulty Easy
Estimated Cost $3

Materials

  • Green buffalo check bandana
  • Wooden shamrocks (or print a small shamrock onto paper) to be used to trace the shape onto the bandana
  • 4-6 inch Burlap Ribbon
  • Twine
  • Shamrock ribbon
  • Wooden beads
  • Craft Felt in: green, black, yellow, orange

Tools

  • Scissors
  • Ruler
  • Hot Glue Gun & Gue
  • White Card stock

Instructions

  1. Cut a piece of card stock into a triangle as wide as your burlap ribbon and as long as you'd like. To get a symmetrical triangle, fold the card stock in half before cutting.
  2. Trace the triangle shape onto the burlap ribbon about 5-7 times--or as many as you'd like flags for your banner.
  3. Cut a length of twine about 4-6 feel long, or long enough to go from one end to the other of your flags, plus 1 foot on each side for hanging.
  4. Glue the twine across the top back of each of the burlap triangles, folding over the top edge of the triangle to help secure the twine.
  5. Sketch and cut out a beard shape onto the orange felt; small green triangles for gnome hats on the green felt; a thin black rectangle for the hat belt; and a small yellow square for the hat belt buckle. Place felt pieces onto the banner triangles and glue into place. Hot glue a small wooden bead just under the hat and centered on the beard. Repeat for each little gnome face.
  6. Trace the shamrock shape you have onto the green buffalo check bandana. Center it on the burlap banner and hot glue carefully as it is thin material and very hot. Repeat for every other burlap banner piece.
  7. Glue a piece of the shamrock ribbon to the top edge of each burlap banner piece and enjoy!
