Last year I started seeing little Scandinavian gnomes popping up everywhere at Christmastime, and I fell in love with them! This past year they seem to have made their way into multiple holidays and themes, and they are an adorable addition to any home decor.  I wanted to create some cute little DIY fall gnomes in autumn colors to boost up my coffee bar, tablescapes and anywhere else I can think of to put these sweet little guys.

I am giving you simple directions, use your creativity to make your DIY fall gnomes uniquely yours!

To make your own DIY Fall Gnomes you will need:

I created some cute little DIY fall gnomes in autumn colors to boost up my fall decor! These sweet little guys are a fun and easy DIY craft!

Directions:

  1. Cover your cone, except the bottom with tacky craft glue.

  2. Starting with the bottom of your cone on one of the straight edges of your check fabric roll until it is covered completely. Stretch and straighten your material until it is smooth.

  3. Cut away excess fabric leaving a bit of overlap on the bottom so you can fold and glue it under. If you want to finish the bottom off you can cut a piece of felt to the same size as the circle and glue it in place.

  4. Next we are gonna roll the hat, roll it from one corner and try it on your gnome so that it sits just a bit loosely halfway down the cone. Secure the seam up the back with glue and trim away excess until it resembles a cone shape.  Trim the bottom so that it is even all the way around then flip it up to create a cute little brim. Set aside and let the hat dry.

  5. From your craft fur you will then cut a small moustache in what is roughly a v shape, and a diamond shaped beard . Here is where you can infuse personality into your gnome, the shapes I recommend are a rough sketch on purpose , differ their beard shapes and lengths to make them each unique. Once you are happy secure the beard with glue to the cone, pressing firmly about halfway up.

  6. Glue a small pom pom just above the beard for his nose.

  7. Glue on your mustache over the nose, adjusting it as you like.

  8. Draw the hat down over the top so that it overlaps the mustache and touches the nose, glue in place.

  9. Set aside until dry.
