Finish:

  • Begin stuffing the body with fiber fill or poly pellets. I chose poly pellets because I wanted my gnome to stand on it’s own. If you are using poly pellets, make sure to place them in a pair of old tights or any piece of fabric that you can secure so the pellets do not fall out.
  • With Color C, you will make 2 braids. Cut 6 strands of yarn for each side (12 total) measuring approximately 12″ long. You can make them longer or shorter depending on how long you would like your braids. Fold the strands in half and pull half of the strands through the side of the gnome’s body (through one of the stitches in the last round.) Make a knot to secure the braids to the body. Braid the strands. When you’ve reached the desired length of your braids, knot the bottom and trim the ends so that they are even. Repeat for the other side.
  • Using the yarn tail an a yarn needle, sew one of the arms to one side of the body. Repeat for the other side.
  • For the hat, using the yarn tail and a yarn needle, sew the top of the hat to the brim. You can add some fiber fill to the inside to keep it from losing it’s shape. Attach the hat to the body using the remaining yarn tails and yarn needle.
  • Weave all ends.
  • Using the hot glue gun, glue the medium green pom pom to the front of the gnome. This will be the nose. Hot glue the smaller green pom poms to each of the hands.
  • These next steps are optional but can add some cute final touches to your gnome. Take the medium orange pom pom and cut a slit into the top. Cut a tiny piece of the green pipe cleaner. Insert a small drop of hot glue into the pom pom and stick the pipe cleaner in to create a pumpkin. Glue the pumpkin to the gnome’s hands.
  • I took 2 small pieces of tulle in black and neon yellow and sewed it to the back of my gnome to add a little cape. You can also hot glue it if you don’t have a needle and thread.
