Shopping List

  • Red felt
  • Pompom
  • Wood furniture button
  • Ribbon or twine
  • Glue (hot glue or craft glue)

This adorable gnome ornament is an easy holiday craft project. Allison, our craft specialist, shows us how she made it.

piece of red felt, wood furniture button, white yarn pompom, red-and-white twine

You’ll need a large pompom for the gnome’s head. Large poms are hard to find in craft stores, so you may need to make your own pompom.

Allison used a wooden furniture button for the gnome’s nose, but a bead or a smaller pompom would also work.

STEP 1

red felt in triangle shape

Cut a triangle from felt. Make the size proportionate to the pompom.

STEP 2

red felt triangle with red-and-white twine attached to top

Form the ribbon or twine into a loop and glue the ends to the top of one side of the triangle.

STEP 3

Applying glue along one of the angled edges, fold triangle over to form a cone. After the glue dries, trim the bottom if needed.

STEP 4

Attach hat to pompom.

STEP 5

Attach nose.

And that’s it! Hang your ornament on a tree or decorate a package (the recipient will love it).
