I love Nordic inspired crafts – including these delightful Christmas gnomes! They are very easy to make with paper cones and felt.
Hello again! Jennifer from Brave New Home here to share another festive holiday craft with you. You’re going to love these fun Scandinavian inspired Christmas gnomes made with felt and paper cones! Adults can make these and kids will love them too.
At Brave New Home, I blog about home design, decorating and DIY projects. Feel free to pop on over whenever you get the chance. Now let’s get on to today’s project.
Nordic Felted Christmas Gnomes
For this project you will need cardboard cone shapes, felt, embroidery floss, cotton balls, wood doll heads and a hot glue gun.
Use two strips of glue to glue your felt to your form at the point where the seams come together. Do not glue the bottom of the hat where the stitching is.
You will tuck the cotton beard under this part of the hat. Also, leave the top of the hat unglued so you can shape it with your fingers later.
Hot glue the back of your wooden doll head and place it where the beard and the hat meet. Make sure the wood is glued to the felt hat at least partially. This will hold it better in place than gluing it to the cotton alone.
