It is such a joy getting to make DIY gnomes. I think the reason for this is that you can make each one so unique. There are so many ways to be creative.
When making your own gnomes, think about all the different sizes you can make the body parts.
For example, you can make their noses big or small, and the same for their toes! When it comes to gnome beards, anything goes! Any color, texture or length.
Typically a gnome will sport a red hat, but you make it any color. Why not?
In addition to being so much fun, these tutorials also all have easy-to-find supplies.
Most of the materials can be found at stores like Hobby Lobby, Michaels, Dollar Tree and the Dollar Store. After getting ideas for making gnome crafts, you may want to check out 41 Fall Dollar Tree Crafts Ideas, and these one for Christmas crafts and Easter decor ideas.
