27 Jun 4th of July Gnomes DIY
It’s almost Independence Day in the United States, so you know what that means? Yes, of course. My girlfriend Ruth is back at her gnome endeavors! I just wanted to drop in quickly today and share her colorful and creative 4th of July Gnomes DIY.
How to Make a DIY Gnome
You can learn how to make a gnome for yourself with this tutorial, click HERE, or you can request to join Ruth’s Facebook group to purchase one for yourself. Go to Facebook and search, “Own a Gnome VIP”. (US orders only)
Where to buy Supplies and Materials for DIY Gnomes
Ruth finds many of her props at stores such as Hobby Lobby, JoAnn Fabrics, and the Dollar Store. Be sure to check the clearance sections too. She buys fabric and also recycled sweaters at thrift stores for the arms and body of the gnomes. For more ideas, click HERE.
Felt, ribbon, and buttons are plentiful in most craft stores and always great materials to create your custom decorations.
Remember, you can pull decorations apart and use smaller parts and trinkets to outfit many gnomes at once. Some of the stars and decor she used here were part of a headband or larger novelty.
Ruth finds patches and other decorative touches that are sometimes sold in sets, on sites such as Etsy or Amazon.
