DIY Gnome Ornament (Free Template) Instructions:
Step 1 – Cut out the Gnome Ornament Pieces From the Free Pattern
Gather your materials. Decide what colors you want the main elements of the handmade ornament to be.
Notice three are two types of Gnome one that has holly on the hat, and one that does not have holly but has an HTV decoration instead.
Decide which type you are making and cut out one of the corresponding outline per an ornament.
Set the outline aside.
Next cut one of the Gnome beard per an ornament. (beard is the same for both ornament types)
Also from white cut out the little cuffs to the mittens
Set these aside – preferably in a baggy so you can keep track of them.
Next cut out one of the Gnome body from your desired color. Note that the body for the holly gnome is different.
From another color cut out the hat and mittens. If making the holly gnome you can also cut out the berries or leaves.
Set those pieces aside and place into your small things baggy. Note: You can cut out the mittens and hat in different colors to make your gnome more colorful.
Finally cut out the holly leaves, berries and gnome nose from the desired colors.
From the HTV cut out the beard lines, hat decorations, and mitten decorations desired for your holiday gnome ornament.
These pieces make a regular no sew gnome ornament.
These pieces make a holly gnome Christmas tree ornament.
Step 2 – Add the HTV to the No Sew Felt Ornament
Let’s start with the beard. Place the HTV on the beard and line up as best you can. Notice that the lines don’t go all the way to the bottom of the beard.
Iron on according to the instructions on your HTV and set aside.
You will need to do this for each ornament.
Next for the non – holly gnomes, select the desired design for his hat and center on it.
Iron on according to the direction on your HTV, and set aside. For the holly gnome leave the hat blank, we’ll get to it in a later step.
Now iron on the mitten designs. Keep in mind that the pattern needs to be low enough on the mitten that it doesn’t get covered by the cuff that we will glue on later.
Iron on. By the way for tiny stuff like this – the MiniPress is really handy.
Set those tiny pieces back into the baggy.
Step 3 – Glue the DIY Gnome Ornament Together
Well start with the base and work our way to the front. Center the body of the gnome on the outline. Glue into place.
This process is the same for both types of ornaments.
Now glue the beards into place. Start by aligning them at the top – this will help them fall into place.
Now glue the cuffs to the tops of the mittens.
Then using the body to help you find the placement (there’s a little bump on the lower side where the mitten cuff will align,) glue the mittens into place.
Next, glue on the hat, aligning the top to help it fall into place.
Add the nose so it sits just under where the brim curves up and center it there. Glue down. The gnome without holly is almost finished.
For the Gnome with holly, place the large holly leaf on the left, using the body as a guide. Then place the smaller holly leaf on the right again using the body a s guide.
Finally figure out how you want to place the berries between the two leaves and glue down.
If desired add a 8 inch loop of ribbon to the back for hanging. Make a bunch for a full lawn of gnomes.
