Copy of Gnome Hat and Beard Template

Cut the hat and beard out on the dotted lines.

Trace the triangle hat over the felt and trace with the marker, then cut it out with the scissors.

Trace the beard template onto the back of faux fur fabric with the marker, then use the scissors to cut it out.

Apply a strip of hot glue to the middle of the bottom on the back of the felt.

Set the top of the beard (wider end) upside down on top of the glue.

Apply a strip of hot glue to each side on the top of the back of the beard.

Fold the green felt over onto the glue on the back of the beard. Repeat for the other side.

Apply a small drop of glue near the top of the back of the felt, on each side, then press down to adhere the felt.

Flip your project over to the front side.

Apply a small dab of glue to the top center of the hat.

Press the red pom onto the drop of glue, hold for a few seconds.

Cut your piece of trim to size, then apply a strip of hot glue along the bottom of the hat.

Carefully set the piece of trim on top of the glue. Trim the edges if need be.

Apply glue to the back of the wooden bead, then attach to the center of the beard, about ½ inch underneath the rim of the hat.

Add a piece of twine, ribbon, or string to the center of the top of the hat using hot glue, if you’d like to hang the ornament.
