A fun variation of our Norwegian Nisse Gnome. I used boxwood for mine but any evergreens will work. You can even use fake greens for an everlasting gnome.
Get tons of inspiration in Sweet Paul Magazine:
Cardboard or flower foam cone, mine is about 12” tall
Hot glue gun
- Star breaking up the boxwood into small pieces.
- If you use flower foam you can stick the box into the foam. If you use a cardboard cone you can hot glue the box in place.
- Work yourself all the way around, but not all the way to the top, leave about 4”.
- Cut off an arm from the sweater and measure it on the cone, you don’t want it to be too big.
- Fold up the end and hot glue in place, turn inside out and close the top using a rubber band.
- Glue a pompom to the end of the hat.
- Make a nose by adding some cotton stuffing to a panty hose, once it’s nice and round cut of the hose and secure with a rubber band.
- Hot glue nose to the cone.
- Hot glue a piece of sweater to craft paper and once its dried cut out two mittens.You can find templates online.
- Hot glue the mittens in place and add the hat. God Jul
