Tips to MAKE these Spring Gnomes
- Several of these DIY gnome tutorials for spring call for craft fur or Mongolian fur, which, if you’ve never had success cutting it, can be quite intimidating. But it doesn’t have to be. Check out this quick video I made of how to make a gnome beard with faux fur.
- Straight-up, there are SO many gnome nose ideas in these gnome tutorials! My favorite tomte nose is definitely polymer clay because I have more control over how big and what color it is. But I also love these wood beads and a random craft bead, sometimes a pony bead–anything round and about the right size.
- If this is your first time to make a gnome, take your time. No one is an expert right away and many of these tutorials took 2 or 3 times to get them right.
- You can make a gnome from any fabric, but if you’re on the fence, reach for felt. Felt is a very forgiving fabric. If you make a mistake, you can trim it and no one will know the difference in your felt tomten. Likewise, fleece and flannel, but felt is the best.
- Each gnome you make is unique. Do not feel constrained by these spring gnome ideas. Come up with your own variation or a new spring gnome idea. And then please come back and share them with me!
