We are adding more all the time. Follow Us on FB to get updated on what's been added.
No Sew Gnomes have gained so much popularity it was going to their heads. They had totally taken over the gnome page so we had to separate them. We now have a Sock Gnome Page. Here you will find all the basics to get you started on your sock gnomes. There are also lots of hints and tips for those who are already addicted. We have also added a Standing Gnome Page. (This page is still under construction) Although you can add boots to a sock gnome, to add legs you need a base you can insert a dowel into. Here you will find gnomes made from pool noodles and styrofoam. These bases also give you more opportunity to add extra details.
GNOMES CAN BE MADE FROM ANYTHING
This is the Glue Gun all my Crafting Groups are talking about, Dual Temp AND Precision Point !!! It's worth the $9 to try.

Pill Bottles are great for smaller gnomes. Remove the label (Yep even gnomes have HIPAA regulations) and cover with material and decorate
Add petals and a clay pot to your pill bottle based gnome
Cut a felt square into strips length wise, however long you want your petal. I did thirds here and only used 2. Then cut slices the other way careful not to cut all the way through. Usually into 5-6 sections. Round off the ends to shape like petals. * None of this needs to be precise or exact. Real flower petals are not perfect !!!
Roll your cut petal strip around the bottom of the pill bottle, gluing as you go.
Add a second or even 3rd strip, depending on how many petals you want. Stagger the petals as you go, if the petals start to line up to the previous row. Cut the felt move it over and continue. Fold petals down to form a flower.
Cut out leaves from green felt and glue to the bottom of your flower (Not the bottom of the pill bottle)
Use the stiffening fabric method from above to make the petals stay where and how you want them.

Faux Fur Pom Pom Ball Gnomes
- You want to trim the fur where you are gluing the boots and hat. So those are attached to something solid and not just fur.
- You also want to make sure you weight the shoes so he will stand.
I ordered these off from Amazon. You get 24 for $16 which makes them under .70 a piece. Just glue on shoes, hat and a nose and your done. Instructions for shoes and hat can be found on the Sock Gnome Page
I ordered mine through the 1st link. However afterwards I found this link. These are less expensive but they are Gradient Color (Not a solid color. They go from light to dark. However some look like the same ones I got ??
This one also offers different packages with various colors at various prices. Worth checking out.
Add Tennis Shoes for a Fun Look
Small Tennis Shoes
Not sure why they market them as bird shoes ????
Add Eyes for another LOOK
These also make really cute refrigerator magnets
You can add a body to the Faux Fur Pom Pom Gnomes. I used a RX bottle, one of the fatter ones. I wanted a container wide enough to attach the boots and a flat top to glue the pom pom to. I filled the bottle with rice and polyfill for weight and covered it with felt.
Place the nose below the Pom Pom and you got a girl gnome
Alcohol Bottles can be turned into Fun Gnomes
Dollar Tree Heart Shape Gumball Machine Gnome
I used the gumball machine as her base and decorated her the same as you would any gnome with a couple of exceptions. The dispenser is in the back and the purple ribbon around her waist is only glued to the bottom of the machine, so it can still be filled or emptied. I think this would probably be better with a regular round gumball machines, the heart shaped one gives her a really wide head.
Clay Pot Gnome
Gnomes and Fake Bakes
Combine your gnomes with a Fake Bake for a really cute display.
Frankie is a Standing Pool Noodle Gnome. Monster Pie is done like the Cream Pies on the Fake Bakes Page
Angel Food Cake Gnome
Pumpkin Pie Gnome
This one is Fake but he'd be cute with real ingredients too
Other Gnome Crafts
I found these little ceramic mushrooms at Dollar Tree. Glue a beard, nose and accents for a quick easy gnome. Add boots (Instructions on the Sock Gnome Page) to take that extra "Step".
Garden Gnomes and Mushrooms
Gnomes are a 2"x 2" board cut at about 4"
I painted the bottoms and used fake fur for the beard, wooden peg for the nose and burlap stiffen with Mod Podge for the hat
For the mushrooms I covered half a Styrofoam circle with red burlap using Mod Podge and added white burlap circles again with the Mod Podge. Make sure the red has dried completely it will bleed unto the white if it's still wet. Glued them on top of another 2"x2"
Honestly this one took some time, only because I needed to make 7 pairs of boots. HOWEVER they were VERY inexpensive to make and I didn't have to use my precious hard to find Dollar Tree booties. I made them using the FREE Card Stock pattern on the Sock Gnome Page. The gnome sign was a Dollar Tree find. I glued styrofoam inside the boot, stuck a dowel into it and glued it to the backside of the sign. (make sure you add weight to the boots). Added some pom poms to the hats for extra dimension.
Mushroom Cap Silhoutte Gnome Jar
I painted a glass jar white and added a mushroom cap to the lid made from material. (Basically it's 2 pieces of material I glued together and stuffed) I only glued it to the lid so the jar can be opened. Added some silk greenery and some silhouettes
Five Minute Gnome
Dollar Tree Slippers can be easily turned into a gnome. Simply roll back the heel and add a nose. Add them to a sign or a wreath or use him as a tree ornament
These little DT Mushroom Homes can also be turned into gnomes. I love how the mushrooms above the windows look like ears :D
Tin Gnome Sign
I found this at Dollar Tree amongst their Valentines stuff. It's cute but I wanted something I could use all year long that would match my decor. A little bit of paint, some beads and chalkboard hearts (Also Dollar Tree) and I transformed it into something that goes with my decor.
You can add a gnome to almost any sign
Replace beards and noses on a pool noodle based gnome with doors and windows.
These are made from a Silicone mold found at Walmart. The mold is deep enough for cake batter too
Gnome Candy Jar
Add a beard and nose to the jar and a hat to the lid for a really cute Candy Jar.
