Gnomes have been on a roll for the past few years, but their popularity has skyrocketed in the past year. I’ve seen gnomes on everything from socks to duct tape, and that’s definitely a factor. I played with them and thought it was a good example. I’ve always wanted to make my own gnome, but I was shocked when I logged into my Pinterest account and saw how many gnome-making tutorials I had saved on my Christmas board. There are so many great concepts out there, I thought I would share some of my favorite Christmas gnome-making tutorials with you. I hope this makes you want to make one too!

What to watch out for when making your own Christmas gnomes

  • If sewing isn’t your thing (and I don’t think it is), pick up one of these simple Gnome patterns for beginners. I’ve been making them for years, and they are so versatile!
  • Take your time. You won’t become an expert right away, and many tutorials require two or three tries.
  • Felt is a very soft fabric. If you make a mistake, you can cut it off so no one will notice. 
  • Each donut is unique. You don’t have to feel limited with these DIY Christmas Gnome tutorials. They offer their own variations and new vacation Gnome concepts. 

High-Quality Furry Issues.

If I can give you my best advice for making Gnome, it’s to choose high-quality fur. Believe me, the problem does exist.

Fur used in crafts is beautiful, but high-quality fur can make a gnome look amazing. My favorite is Mongolian long-haired fur, which looks and feels irresistible. Another favorite is embossed fur, which can be found at most needlework stores.
