Upcycled Bottle Gnomes

6 Materials
25 Minutes

Gnomes are all the rage, and they are super easy to make with a jar, some felt, and glue!! Check out below for how to make them!
First start out with some cleaned bottles and wash the labels off. Any tall bottle will do the trick - even wine bottles! I used an empty BBQ bottle for my gnomes.
I etched the bottles with Etchall dip n Etch to make then look "frosted" .
Candies and treats look so cool in a frosted jar! I love the look of a solid color of chocolate candies in this jar!
Now time to make the gnomes for the tops. All you need is a square 9x9 sheet of felt, and roll it up to make a cone and glue it in place. Add a little section of faux fur for the bead and a wood bead for the nose. If a white beard is not your thing, try black or brown faux fur material for something a little different!
My favorite colors are blues, so that is my color for the gnomes, bur really you can make them in any color you want! Check out how simple these are to make in the video here!
These little gnome bottle are so cute, and you can make them in any color of felt you wish! You can even make them on full bottles to give as presents, such a a full bottle of wine! Pop on over to my  BLOG for a few extra tips and additional pictures about this project!
