These cute little gnomes make great gifts. I actually hang wine cork ornaments around wine bottles to give as gifts. The last ornaments I made were for Halloween and you can check those out here –> Ghost and Bat Cork Ornaments.

But back to Gnomes. Aren’t these little guys cute!

Next, make the hat by cutting a square of fabric or a square of wide wire ribbon about 2.5″ to 3″. Then round as shown below.

You’ll also need to hot glue a loop of twine to later hang your gnome. Hot glue the twine ends along one of the straight sides.

Cut a scrap of fabric or wide wire ribbon in a 2.5" to 3" square. Then round it cutting off one of the corners like above. Next hot glue twine to the inside of your hat along one of the straight edges.

Cut the faux fur beard. You only need a little scrap of the fur. Cut a triangle about an inch wide along the wrong side of your fabric making sure the faux fur is flowing downward to the center point.

Note: Do not use scissors to cut the beard because that will cut the fur along the edges which gives it a flowing beard look!

Cut a triangle our of the faux fur about an inch wide for the beard 
using a precision knife, not scissors. Make sure your fur is flowing downward to the point.

To finish I hand-sewed a shamrock button to the top of each hat but you could certainly hot glue them on.
