How to Make a Gnome With a Glass Bead
If you want to learn how to make a gnome, the best place to start is with the Easy Gnome Yarn. Everyone loves gnomes and nothing says “cool” like a gnome sweater. With just a few craft supplies, you can have the cutest gnome gift for almost anyone!
Need a little extra oomph? Try making a Gnome Balloon. This is very easy and will bring a smile to any kid’s face. All you need are the following supplies: glitter, glue, yarn, safety scissors and a needle, but you can also use other supplies if you feel like it.
The basic concept of how to make a gnome begins with the gnome itself. You will need about twelve strands of yarn that are the same size or smaller. Use the hot glue gun to attach the first two ends of the yarn together. After that, attach the next two ends, then the last two, and so on until your gnome is done.
For the beard portion of the sweater, you will need a hot glue gun, a pair of scissors and a bit of hot glue. With your hands, dip the end of your hair dye in the glue, and press it against the beard. When you are ready to attach the scarf to the gnome, apply the glue and press the ends of the scarf against the beard.
Next, we will look at how to make a gnome sock for a cute DIY Christmas stocking. To begin, you will need about sixteen socks. If you do not have sock, then go to the store or an online store and purchase a pair of socks. Do not forget to include the laces in your stocking! Once you have all of the socks that you want, cut the bottom edge off of one sock and tie it into a knot.
Using the hot glue gun, draw a straight line down one of the socks and then across the bottom of the sock. Cut off the tip of the sock and discard it. Using the scissors and pipe cleaner, carefully remove any excess fur and then cut the rest of the sock from either end. Place the socks inside of the jar and then tie another knot. After this is done, glue the bottom of the jar closed with the pipe cleaner. Before you insert the socks inside of the jar, cut off some of the long fur at the top of the sock.
Now it is time to sew the socks to the hat. Place the socks on top of the hat and then pull the bottom back so that the hat is completely covered. If you need to use a hot glue gun, this is the time to do so. Use the hot glue gun to create the grooves on the socks and then pin the socks and hat together. The last step is to add the cotton ball to the bottom of the hat so that it stays in place.
Once you are done, it is super easy and quick to make a gnome for your kid. There are some things to consider though. If you do not know how to make a gnome, then perhaps you should enlist the help of a parent or two. If you can explain the concept of using glue and wooden beads, you can get the job done quickly.
Making gnomes can also be super easy if you remember a few tips. First of all, you can either make gnomes out of cardboard and glue them to the bottom of a hat. You could also make gnomes out of hot glue gun. However, I find cardboard and hot glue gun models more appealing. The first thing you need to make sure is that the child will like their new pet. Since they are soft and squishy, they may not want to make a hard decision about this.
If you are creating a felt gnome, you should follow some instructions from the craft store. If you are doing a felt to cardboard model, the directions should also be followed carefully. Felt is much easier to work with when you have a hand saw or a cone and hook. You will notice that the felt pops out and is easy to put back into place. If you are using hot glue gun, you need to make sure that the glue is hot enough or you will get a smudge.
If you are making a plastic felt gnome, you will cut strips of plastic felt and shape it to your shape. Cut the strips in half if they are longer than a couple inches to allow for sticking the beads or buttons. Then, using your hot glue gun, glue the two halves together and use a pin to hold everything in place. After you are done gluing, you can now paint the felt to match the rest of your outfit. For best results, make sure you apply at least three coats of paint.
