Build-a Gnome! How to Make your own Gnome for Any Occasion

Published On: April 28th, 2022Categories: Create - The Craft Warehouse Blog

Gnomes for every occasion!

Gnomes bring good luck and lots of playful cheer to any occasion or room. We love making gnomes from our faux fur poms. With some felt and a glue gun you can decorate the faux fur poms to make a gnome for any occasion. Make them as a gift, use them for a seasonal display, make an office mascot. They are very social creatures.

Watch the video tutorial above and make them along with us.

Choose your Fur Poms:

Choose your Felt:

We like these packs of assorted themed wool felt squares for this project. You can also shop All Felt here >

Don’t Forget the Nose!

We have used wood beads, tiny pom-poms, and buttons for the gnome nose. You could also make one out of clay, use other kinds of beads, or cut one out of felt.

Add Some Embellishments:

You can add whatever you like to your gnomes, of course, we love these whimsical buttons. Shop all Dress it Up Buttons >

Do you need a Glue Gun?
