Once done, it’s time to assemble the gnome. Attach the teacup as a hat onto the body of the gnome using E6000 glue, then add faux fur for the beard. Next, add a little bead for the nose, then decorate the feet and the teacup hat with some faux flowers. Secure the gnome onto the sauce using E6000 glue.
