Flower Pot Gnome

4 Materials
1 Minute

How to make a flower pot gnome decoration. This is mostly a Dollar Tree DIY, but I did get the beard from a craft store.

You can use this adorable little gnome for faux plants or real plants. Just be mindful of the size of the pot for real plants because I used a 4 inch pot. You can use a larger pot and scale your supplies as needed.

You will need:

Start by cutting a 3 x 3 inch section of faux fur with the craft knife. Then cut the corners to make a beard. I left some fringe on the faux fur.

Use hot glue to attach the beard just below the rim of the flower pot.

Then wrap twine around the rim of the flower pot. Use hot glue to attach the twine to the flower pot.

Then use hot glue to attach the nose.

You can then add a fake plant or fake succulents. I had this large fake flower, so I stuck that in it. You can also fill it with dirt and use it as a planter. I suggest using this indoors or on a covered porch because the beard will get messy if it gets wet.
