Free Gnome Pattern

Sign up for my GNOME newsletter and receive access to a basic gnome pattern, and future emails with GNOME project ideas, & inspiration.

Be inspired by the gnome ideas below and then make your own!


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 bodies of the gnomes. For more ideas, click HERE

Felt, ribbon, and buttons are plentiful in most craft stores and are 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.
