We all know how much fun it can be to add a little whimsy and charm to our homes, especially during the holiday season. And what better way to do that than with a cute and festive DIY gnome? That’s why we’re excited to share this project with you, which was contributed by the talented Chantal from Crafts and DIY of all time.

Chantal’s gnome project is a perfect example of how you can use simple materials and techniques to create something truly special. By using white fur and a red nose, you can make an adorable Christmas gnome that will bring a smile to anyone’s face. And for Easter, why not try using pastels to create a sweet and playful gnome? Or, if you’re looking to make a Valentine’s Day gift, reds are the perfect choice for a romantic and charming gnome.

But no matter which holiday or occasion you’re celebrating, Chantal’s tutorial is easy to follow and can be customized to fit your own style and preferences. With helpful images and step-by-step instructions, you’ll be well on your way to creating your own adorable and unique gnome in no time.

So why not give it a try and see what kind of creative and festive gnome you can come up with? Thanks again to Chantal for sharing her idea and photos with us, and we can’t wait to see what kind of fun and charming gnomes you create!

For the beard, long hair fur is used and cut into a triangle to form a beard, or you can wrap the whole jar all the way around using a rectangle of beard fur.

Personally, I like the triangle beards as it uses less of the expensive fur, BUT if your jar is empty it might look odd from the back, so really only works with real succulents or jars filled with dirt.  You could also paint your jar a solid color using spray paint.

Make sure your hair is going down the beard, as shown. otherwise, it will look like your gnomes’ beard is growing sideways. If you do not have long hair fur, you can use fuzzy fabric, Brown moss or even a solid piece of felt for a similar look to your succulent gnome.
