Use whit fur and red ribbon to create a Santa themed gnome pot. So many opportunities to use your creativity in making these very simple but adorable pots. They also make great gifts for Mother’s day too.


Cut a 3 inch by 3 inch section of the faux fur using the x-acto knife on the backside of the fur.

Then cut the bottom corners off of the faux fur with the x-acto knife

Next using the hot glue gun, add a line of glue to the top of the fur and press firmly onto the clay flower pot

Next on the backside of the clay flower pot, add a dab of hot glue and wrap the twine around the top of the flower pot to the desired look you want. Trim off the end and add a dab of glue to secure it.


Next, add a dab of glue to the wooden bead and then press firmly onto the middle beard.
