DIY Homemade Ornament with Gnomes Instructions
Step 1 – Work with the Polymer
Start by making your gnome’s nose by combining the brown and white clay into a light brown clay.
Roll this into a neat ball.
Bake per the polymer clay package directions. Allow gnome nose to cool completely before handling.
Step 2 – Prep the Ornament
Hot glue the poly-fill in place inside the flat part of your ornament.
Affix the tree into the back of the ornament leaving plenty of room for your gnome. Set aside.
Step 3 – Make the Gnome
Cut the pieces from the template out of the red felt.
Roll the long rectangle into a cone, hot gluing it in multiple places so it holds its shape.
Hot glue the hat (the triangle shape)
by folding it in half and gluing the sides together.
Cut out a tiny triangle of Mongolian fur and trim it to fit your cylinder of red felt.
Glue the Mongolian fur in place on the gnome body (cylinder of red felt).
Affix the gnome nose at the top of the beard.
Glue the hat in place over the beard and bunched-up over the nose.
Fold the hat over and hot glue in place.
Place the gnome inside the ornament and glue in place.
Step 4 – Add the Snoy scene to the DIY Christmas Ornament
With the paint brush, cover the outside of the ornament in translucent glue.
Follow this with glitter
by dabbing it on with the paintbrush.
To make the icicles, draw icicles with
hot glue on the parchment paper and sprinkle with the glitter.
When the icicles are completely cool, remove them from the parchment paper and affix them to the top edge of the ornament opening with a dab of hot glue.
