Gnome Christmas Ornament Tutorial
Cut out the following pieces:
- 1 backing piece from cardboard or cereal box
- 1 main piece from craft fur
- 2 boots from felt
- 2 mittens from felt
- 1 hat from felt
- 1 nose from felt
- 18″ length of 1/4″ ribbon, tied in a loop or knot at the top
For bulky fur you can either trim it down at the top or trim off an inch where the hat will sit. We just don’t want the fur to come out of the top of the hat. You can also trim it off later if you prefer.
Then glue the beard to the cardboard. I ended up flipping my cereal box to the printed side and glued the beard on that so the back will be plain cardboard. If you have trimmed the top and have a bright cereal box that will show through the felt, use a scrap of felt to cover the rest of it before gluing on the hat.
Glue the hat to the top of the gnome.
Then glue on the nose. You can choose where you want to put it. I like it right at the bottom edge of the hat.
Glue the ribbons to the back at the top of the hat.
Glue the boots to the back of the ornament.
Then sew the mittens on. You can stick these in the fur a little bit, on top or behind on the back of the ornament.
Want to decorate more? Add a pom-pom on the hat, gold paint decorations, or embroidered designs!
