Tips to Make a Gnome from Scraps
- First things first, you have to be a bit of a craft-hoarder and keep some scraps around. I know, terrible, right? But that’s what’s necessary. I mean, really, you don’t have to use scraps, but this is a great scrap-busting project. So, scrounge and find some of your favorite discarded bits to make this gnome.
- I love using basically anything for a gnome’s nose. But for this gnome, I used a wood bead like these. I have a whole jar of them and they make great noses because they’re consistent in color and size, so you can rely on them just looking “right” when you grab one.
- One of my favorite things about gnomes is the beautiful flowy beards. Even for a little tiny gnome like this, the beard material you use can mean the difference between a shoddy looking pile of scraps vs. a professional-looking gnome you could sell. So, use your favorite faux fur, even with a scrap project like this one.
