hot glue, glue gun
Begin by balling up the cotton batting. Just ball it in your hand like you are making a snowball.
Take the floss or thread and gently tie it around the batting. Wrap it twice in alternating directions and tie to secure. This will help the batting stay in a ball.
Cut the felt into a pointed arch as shown.
Roll it to create a felt cone.
Secure the cone shape by adding a dab of hot glue along the edge of the felt. Gently press.
Add a drop of glue at the top of the cone. Press a medium pom pom to it to create the hat.
At the bottom of the hat, apply a thin line of hot glue. Press the hat to the top of your cotton batting ball. Hold in place until secure.
Add a small drop of glue to a pink pom pom. Place it directly under the hat to create the gnome’s nose.
Gently pull at the batting below the nose to create a beard.
Your Christmas gnome is now ready to be displayed!
