pine cone gnome gift card holder

​Rolling with the gnomies! Follow this design by Andrew and Dennis and turn a small pine cone into an adorable gnome for a festive woodland vibe for a unique gift that can be used as an ornament, holiday display or even attach to a gift card!
Step 1

Create a beard by wrapping a piece of yarn around three or four of your fingers about 15 times. Carefully pull it off your fingers and cut a smaller piece of yarn and tie it around the middle of the whole loop. Cut through the two loops to create a pom-pom.

Step 2

Give the “beard” added texture by rubbing the yarn together with your two fingers pulling the stands apart.​

Step 3

Make a hat by folding a piece of felt into fourths and cut a rounded edge from corner to corner. Add hot glue to one of the straight edges and roll the opposite edge and glue in place to create a cone.

Step 4

Start to build the gnome by adding a bit of hot glue to the middle of a pine cone and press the beard into the glue.
TIP: You can use a pine cone found in nature, too!

Step 5

Glue a bead at the top middle of the beard with the hole arranged vertically for a nose.

Step 6

Add glue to the back of the hat and place it on top of the pine cone. Add a little glue above the bead and press the brim of the hat.
TIP: Make sure the nose sticks out and is not covered by the hat.

Step 7

Now, bend the top of the hat down to the brim and glue in place.

Step 8

Give the beard a trim if needed.

Step 9

Finally, add a hook for an instant ornament, tape to a gift card or add to the top of a present for a handmade embellishment.
