Spring Sock Gnome with Boots
Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, we are all about the gnome-life. Think I’m kidding? Search the site for gnomes (click here). I’ll wait. See?! I love making new styles of DIY gnomes – sock gnomes, cone gnomes, gnomes with legs, feet, boots. So, of course, I needed a fun sock gnome for spring and, wouldn’t you know it, I felt like this little guy needed some handmade gnome boots.
Why homemade boots, you ask? Well because I’m embarking on a little mini-crusade to make 10 pairs of gnome boots over the next few days. Ten pairs, each different and each fun – be sure to get on the email list here to get notified when they are ready. In the meantime, you need a spring sock gnome with boots, don’t you? Oh, friend, let’s get started.

Tips to Make a Spring Sock Gnome with Boots
- Start with getting a sock that’s super fun and spring-erific. I found mine in my hubby’s sock drawer (just kidding–he was gifted some new socks in a package set of 4 pairs based on my need for a spring sock gnome…).
- Gnome beards… If you have never cut faux fur before or you’ve hated how it turned out, I have a treat for you! You can’t just whip out your scissors and start cutting as that will leave a sharp edge on the fur. Instead, flip over the fur and, with a razor blade or Exacto knife, cut only the fabric and then pull the cut piece away from the whole. This will leave you with a beautiful drape on the beard and you’ll love it. I show you how to cut faux fur in the video.
- I made this entire gnome a no-sew pattern by using hot glue to make all my hems. But you could absolutely use a sewing machine.
- If you want to make your own coffee cup as I did, the good news is that my YouTube video of making this tomte will have a tutorial of how to make the cup–but you can also check out my tutorial for how to make a sock gnome with a coffee cup for some images to help until I can get that video published.
