  • socks

  • scissors
  • hot glue gun
  • 2 – table tennis ball

Step 1

To start, fill out the bottom of the sock with stuffing beads to give it a solid base, then fill it all the way to the top with polyfill. Secure the top with a rubber band or hot glue. Next, split the mop in half and cut off one side. After this, bind them together using a rubber band. Once done, apply a good amount of hot glue on top and carefully attach the beard mop to it.

Step 2

Next, make the nose. Paint one tennis ball with a mix of brown and orange, then let it dry completely. After this, attach it to the gnome with hot glue. Next, grab the other sock and put the other table tennis ball inside. Secure the bottom with a rubber band, then add a small amount of polyfill to keep the hat upright. Now, place the hat on the gnome, making sure the heel portion of the sock is on the back of the gnome. Secure the hat with some hot glue, then give the beard a final trim. Lastly, attach the heart shape from Dollar Tree at the bottom for the feet. Accessorize the gnome with different sizes of hearts for final touches.
