DIY Felted Gnomes

2 Materials
1 Hour

December is definitely one of my favorite months of the year (I simply love Christmas and the all of the holiday decorations) and I love making projects to decorate the house or to give as gifts; there’s nothing like handmade gifts to show how much you love someone.

These adorable gnomes are so easy to make and look amazing. For this DIY I’ve made my own paper cones but if you don’t have the time or don’t want to DIY then you can buy cones made of paper or foam. Patterns on my blog
