Hello and welcome to Our Crafty Mom. The Dollar Store Divas are back featuring DIY Dollar Store Christmas craft and decorating ideas.
At the end of the post, you can click on the links to see the rest of the Christmas inspired DIY projects. I’m totally jumping on the gnome bandwagon with this adorable Christmas gnome.
I think gnomes are kind of like candy corn, you either love them or hate them. I’ll be honest, I wasn’t a fan for some time, but they have totally grown on me and this Christmas tree version has become a favorite.
So, are you team gnome? If so, you will love this easy and inexpensive tutorial.
Supplies Needed For Dollar Store Christmas Gnome
All of the supplies are from the Dollar Tree, except the ceramic boots.
- Dollar Tree Christmas Trees – 2
- Foam Floral Blocks
- Christmas Ornament Ball
- Jingle Bell
- Fleece Scarf
- Ceramic Santa Boots – Michael’s
Remove the Christmas trees from the boxes and start fluffing the stems, but face the stems down, instead of up like you normally would on a Christmas tree.
Wrap the top stem of the tree around the two trees to help hold them together.
Cut a piece of the foam block to fit in the Santa boots and place it inside. It should fit snug.
Push the two Christmas trees inside the foam in the Santa boots.
Fold the buffalo plaid scarf in half and cut a two pairs of oval shapes to use for the gnomes gloves.
Hot glue the gloves together and fold them right side out so the rough edges don’t show.
Make the gnome’s hat by folding the scarf in half and cutting from end to end at the diagonal. Hot glue all but the bottom 3 inches.
Fold the bottom 3 inches of the hat to form a cuff and place it on the gnome tree. The hat should be placed lower on the back of the gnome.
Hot glue a jingle bell to the bottom of the gnome’s hat.
Hot glue an ornament directly below the front center of the hat to form a nose. The second you add the nose, it totally transforms into a gnome!
Add the mittens to each side by placing them on one of the stems. Use the strings from the scarf to tie them on. This is a cute little detail.
Add a little bit of white paint to the front to create a light beard. This is optional, but it does give it some texture.
You are done! I’m so happy with how this little guy turned out. I have one more set of boots, so I plan to make a wife for this Christmas gnome. I’m thinking I’ll go with a pink plaid hat and may use a white tree. I’ll definitely come back and share it.
I hope you enjoyed this Dollar Store Christmas Gnome. I’d love it if you would share it with your friends. Thanks so much!
