I think I have a little gnome competition at home. It seems my 15 year old daughter loves them a lot. She made her own copy by using a couple of Faux Fur Pompoms that were laying around. They used to be her key-chains. So let’s make a gnome shall we?
But BEFORE WE MAKE ONE you need to check my latest video of Chunky YARN Gingerbread Man before you see Gnomes
Items you need (not many at all)
- Faux-fur pompom
- Fabric (she used dish rag and napkin)
- Wooden Beads
- Hot glue gun and glue sticks
First measure “gnome head ” (that means top of faux fur pompom) and cut that long strip out of fabric of your choice . Hot glue both ends together.
Attach one side to the pompom. Insert wire twisted with pipe cleaners inside that long tube and hot glue it again folding fabric again in half.
Hot glue wooden bead under the hat and it seems you are done.
I was a bit skeptical about that GNOME hat staying up but I was so wrong . Inserted wire into pompoms really holds it up nicely.
I am so proud of my daughter creativity! She really did an awesome job! Very resourceful! Don’t you think so?
I can see that she tied my clay gift tags to the end of their hat. I love that idea!
If you like to know how to make them here is MY POST with directions how to make them.
