How to Make Easter Gnomes
These adorable little Easter Gnomes are super easy to make, so I made a ton and used them for a Gnome garland.
Easter Gnome Supplies
😀I recommend watching the How-To make an Easter Gnome video before beginning.😀
- Felt (tan, hot pink, light pink, green, blue, and violet)
- Pattern (FREE printable pattern)
- Scissors (these are my favorite scissors ever)
- Sewing pins
- Faux fun
- Craft knife
- Water-soluble makers
- Cutting mat
- Silicone mat
- Hot glue and glue sticks
- Wooden bead
- Baker’s Twine
Cut Easter Gnome Fabric
After I printed out my pattern, I used paper scissors to cut them out.
Then I pinned the body pattern piece to the tan felt (folded over) and cut around the pattern.
Next, I cut out all the other pattern pieces according to the directions on the printed pattern pieces.
Next, I used a fabric marker and traced around the beard pattern on the faux fur. Note: be sure the fur’s nap is in the correct direction before tracing the bread.
I used a Xacto knife to cut out the beard so that I could carefully cut just the base fabric and not the fur.
Assembling Easter Gnome
I used hot glue; however, you could sew the pieces together with the blanket stitch or a running stitch.
Place a glue line along the top of the beard, then place it between the side points of the tan felt body piece.
Attach the nose (wood bead) in the center top of the beard with hot glue. Note: be sure the nose sits just over the fur; as a result, your gnome nose will be seen peeking out under the hat.
Next, I attached the hat by gluing only from the side points to the top hat point, thereupon leaving the “cuff” and brim open.
Creating the Ears
I glued the pink inner ears in the center of the ears to create the Easter Bunny ears, aligning the straight edges.
Note: I pinned the hat cuff to help me visualize the ear placement.
Note: You want to position the ears on the hat to be under the cuff.
Once satisfied with the ear placement, I glued them in place.
I ran a glue line (about 1/4″ from the cut edge) to stuff my bunny and quickly placed the back body piece over the glue.
Next, I placed a small amount of fiberfill into the opening of the bunny. Then I glued the body closed.
