Christmas gnome wreath using a mop

Christmas gnome wreath using a mop

Using a mop, a scarf and a golf ball (or a pom pom), create this unique gnome for your Christmas decorations in less than 5 minutes!

What you need

Dollar Tree Snowman
Craft Glue
Craft pick
Golf ball or Pom pom


This Christmas gnome wreath is made by using Dollar tree, Dollar Store or other discount store items and hacking them into a brand new creation.

First off you will need a snowman base. You need to strip all the tinsel off the base. Next take a mop head and cut the strands off. You will be re-attaching them to the frame as shown below in the photos.

Next step is to paint your golf ball and allow it to dry.

whilst it is drying create the beanie using a scarf as shown

Fold the tassels of the scarf to the top, this will be the top of your beanie. Create a hem at the bottom and secure with glue.

Create the tuft with a rubber band or ribbon and glue into place.  Pop the nose in to position and finish off the gnome with a decorative ribbon or craftpick on top.

  1. did you glue the mop to the form or did you do slip knots thanks looks great

  2. Thanks for a great idea! I have plenty of those on hand from other projects, The wood ones suggested on a different gnome project are a bit pricey.

    I loved this idea I used a pumpkin decoration just like snowmen from dollar tree

  5. Susie Frees says

    I just used Ping-Pong balls for the gnome’s nose. Same idea as the golf ball, but much lighter and easier to buy. What else can be used for the frame? These snowmen cannot always be found. I looked today and nothing! I love using mop heads for crafting. This is one thing I had not thought of yet, and I love gnomes.

  6. love it adorable

  7. Is there a video tutorial? The instructions are a little lacking!
