So I went to my local Dollar Tree store yesterday to check out their Christmas decor and look for cute picture frames. Didn’t find much in Christmas isles but did bring some frames for couple of projects that I will share shortly. As I was waiting in line to check out my items, cute little fuzzy hat with two pom-pom caught my eye. I knew it right away it is perfect some fun Christmas craft. It took me whole day to figure it out but now I am really excited and can’t wait to start! Let’s make White Angel Gnome DIY! Who doesn’t love easy gnome DIY specially when hat is already done. Christmas Gnome DIY.
Hope that I will not regret my decision…ha ha ha. There is a big plus in this project ….I don’t have to make a gnome hat! It is done for me! So let’s gather things we need to complete that project.
Items you need to make an Angel Gnome DIY
- Fur ( gnome beard)
- Quilt Batting
- Can (recycle bin)
- Hat of your choice (store bought or anything from your closet)
- Hot glue gun
- Wooden bead
Here are my sources for some of supplies
As I was gathering my supplies to make a gnome I encountered a small problem…. I didn’t have anything to make his body! So I went on the hunt around the house. I have made few gnomes already and used styrofoam cones that I still have, but they were not long enough and too skinny for what I had in mind. Thank Goodnes there is my recycle bin!! I found something that I can use! Big can after red kidney beans was bulky enough. I am so glad my daughter requested chili last week for dinner,
Let’s go to work now! Let’s learn a new way of how to make a gnome. Who doesn’t like a fun Christmas craft? I think we have it all now. Can’t wait to meet my angel in person! …but wait I need to cover my can with something! Quilt Batting should help tons! LET ME ADD IT TO THE LIST! Had some leftover form my Layered Wreath that you can see HERE or on the picture below to read more about that project
How to make an Angel Gnome diy – Christmas DIY.
Wrap your can with Quilt Batting or anything that you have in the house that will make our can feel a little soft
Layer your can with batting and secure it with hot glue. It really doesn’t matter how that looks now because will cover all up again.
Piece of fabric or napkin will cover layers of Quilt Batting beautifully
Place your wrapped can in the middle of napkin and secure each corner all the way up with hot glue gun. Fold 2 loopy sides that are left and also secure with glue.
Attach fur -our gnome beard right to the top.
Time to work on our wings. I cut mine out of cardboard and decorated with leftover fur scraps.
Secure the top of fur with a ribbon or a twine to edges. You can go all around or leave the way I left it.
Time to assemble all pieces together and finally meet Angel Gnome!
And we are done! Fun Christmas Gnome DIY craft have to admit that. I am really pleased with the results! Just need to work on his wings I think … but my gnome really rocks this Dollar Tree hat, don’t you think so? It is simply awesome any way you style it!
