Instructions

Holiday Gnome Wall Art

Print Gnome Head template on cardstock and cut out. Pin the template to the foam sheet and cut out with the serrated knife.

Holiday Gnome Wall Art

Position a 8.5” x 11” felt sheet to the bottom of the foam sheet as shown. Trim the felt around the bottom of the foam to fit and glue in place.

Holiday Gnome Wall Art

Wrap a 5” circle of felt around the 2.5” ball. Pull and gather the felt to one side of the ball. Trim excess felt away with scissors and glue in place.

Holiday Gnome Wall Art

Glue the eyes centered about 1” down from the top of the felt. Glue the nose just below the eyes.

Holiday Gnome Wall Art

Cut 20” lengths of the cream yarn.   Tie four lengths together at one end creating a long tassel. Pin about 24 cream tassels across the face from cheek to cheek, just under the nose. Cut 20” lengths of the grey, silver and white yarn. Mix yarn and tie four strands together to create more tassels. Pin the tassels evenly spaced among the cream tassels to add texture and contrast to the beard.

Repeat this step to fill in on each side of the eyes and nose.

Holiday Gnome Wall Art

Cut a triangle from the grey felt that is 30” tall and 22” wide at the base. Fold and glue a 1” hem in the base of the triangle. Wrap the base of the triangle around the top of the head, concealing the top of the yarn tassels and felt edge. Pin the hat in place at the back. Spot-glue as you go for a secure hold. Fold the edges together along the top of the hat and glue to form the tall, cone-shaped hat. Glue pompom to the tip of the hat.

Twist the chenille stem into a loop and pin it to the back of the head for the hanger. Glue the pin in place for a more secure hold. Pin the poinsettia to the hat to finish.
