What Do I Need to Make Gnomes?

Believe it or not, you only need a few supplies to make homemade Gnomes. This is what I used for mine, you can find most items at the Dollar Tree or any craft store.

  • Dollar Store Fuzzy Socks – (Here are some cute socks on Amazon)
  • A Mason jar or repurposed jar
  • Craft fur
  • Rock or wooden round ball
  • Candy to fill your jar if giving as a gift
  • Hot glue gun
  • Scissors
  • Pipe cleaner (optional)

I recommend using different colors of craft fur for the Gnome beards. It’s fun having a family of them with different color of hair! Click here to find all kind of different colors of —> craft fur.


How to Make a Gnome Hat From a Sock

After you fill you jar with candy, it’s time to make the gnome hat. There is no need for stuffing or cutting, because you use one fuzzy sock as the hat and the other as the stuffing.

Roll up one sock and place it inside of the other.

Tie the toe of the sock hat into a ball. If the fuzzy sock is too thick to tie, just use a pipe cleaner and tie around the tip to form a little ball.

Now place the sock over the jar and shape it however you like. It’s already starting to look adorable!

How to Make a Gnome Face

You could stop right here, but adding the face to the jar is what makes these gnomes so stinking cute!

Start by cutting the fur to the width of your jar. Trim the beard however you like it.

With hot glue, glue the fur to the jar. Be sure to move the sock so it doesn’t get glue on it.

Next, hot glue a wooden ball or rock as the gnome nose. I added my nose right onto the fur and then secured to the glass jar.

After the glue dries, pull the sock down over the beard and you have the cutest gnome!
