This year seems to be the year of the GNOMES for us!!! We have to be honest though.. we weren’t too much of Gnome fans until Erin’s Dollar Tree Gnome DIY. Then we fell in love with them!!!
These turned out so cute, and I’m so excited to share with y’all how I did it.
Here’s what I used for this project:
- Med-Large Pinecones. I got mine from Michaels
- Epsom Salt
- White Glitter
- Super Scotch Spray Adhesive
- Hot Glue/ Glue Gun
- A Piece of fabric
I started with spraying the bottom part of the pine cone (pointy end down) with spray adhesive. Then, I held it over a container and started sprinkling the epsom salt on the pinecone. I added glitter to give it a little shimmer.
You can also use the spray adhesive as a sealer for the glitter and epsom salt by just spraying it over and letting it dry. This will help to keep it from falling off.
Next, I took my fabric and created a little gnome hat. You can make your hat floppy or pointy.. It’s totally up to you. I did both.
I secured the hat on the top of the pinecone with hot glue.
We all know the NOSE makes the GNOME come to life!!! I used a big wooden bead for the nose. The bigger the nose the better in my opinion. I attached it right under the hat with hot glue.
I then tied off the tip of the hat with some twine, and added a little piece of a dollar tree mop around the bottom of the hat for a cute little detail. On the floppy hat gnome, I added a piece of red fabric.
I created a hanger for the back by gluing a piece of twine, and then added a cute little snow flake to them!
Y’all I just love how these turned out!!! They are so dang cute.
AND they were so simple to do!!!
Use what you have to create your pinecone gnomes! No need to go out and buy a whole lot of stuff.
If you love these as much as we do, could you do us a little favor and…
PIN IT FOR LATER
