HOW TO MAKE A NO-SEW DIY GNOME
CUT THE FELT
Cover the Purex bottle with felt and cut it to size to cover about 3/4 of the bottle.
STEP 2. HOT GLUE TO BOTTLE
Hot glue the felt around the Purex bottle. You want it to be snug.
CUT FELT FOR THE HAT
Cut a template for the gnome hat. The size is about 7″x7″.
STEP 4. ADD WIRE
Add a piece of wire to the hat. This will allow you to bend it if you want.
STEP 5. GLUE THE HAT
Run hot glue along the length of the hat to secure it.
STEP 6. CUT FUR FOR THE BEARD
Measure around the Purex bottle to determine the length of the fur needed and cut to size.
Hot glue the fur around the top 1/4 of the Purex bottle. You want to cover the entire bottle.
STEP 7. SECURE THE BEARD
Once the beard is in place, you can hot glue the gnome hat to meet up with the beard. Glue a wood bead under the hat for the nose.
STEP 8. ADD HAT AND NOSE
Use a paper punch to cut out glitter hearts and add to the gnome hat with a dab of hot glue.
STEP 9. GLUE HEARTS TO HAT
