We have a thing for gnomes! There I said it. I am not sure why or when it happened, but we are now a gnome collecting household. They are so adorable and magical. I heart them and so does my daughter who insisted on transforming our Styrofoam cone (almost Christmas tree craft) into a darling little gnome with a pink beard.

How We Did It

Holiday Gnome
It takes a lot less then I imagined to build a gnome. We gathered our few things and got to work on this darling little one.
Holiday Gnome
First we wrapped the cone in a neutral color felt with a little tacky glue.

Next, we added a red gnome hat by just wrapping the top portion of the cone with red felt and a little more glue.

For the beard we tied small pieces of yarn to a large strand of yarn. Emma did the cutting (her favorite part) and I tied each one on.

Next she added a couple buttons and a pom pom to become our sweet gnome face.

I helped to tie our beard around the cone and our little gnome was all set for a day in the garden with mushrooms and fairies! Or he may just sit on our mantel and look cute. To each his own.
