How to Make a Gnome Bottle Topper
1 Cut out the two pieces, the hat triangle, and the beard. When cutting the craft fur, slide your scissors to the base of the fur so you cut only the base and not the fur.
With the right sides of the fabric together, fold the hat in half lengthwise. Stitch, and reinforce at both ends by backstitching. Gently turn the right side out.
2 Trim the fur off the top edge of the beard. It is optional to clip the corners off where the dashed lines are. You can also make the beard longer or shorter. You are the gnome artist!
Next, insert it into the hat. Be sure the fur piece is facing forward. Run a line of hot glue across the inside brim of the hat. Position the beard and hold the two pieces together until they cool slightly.
3 In the front, tuck the nose slightly under the hat brim and adhere it with hot glue. Add additional trims as desired.
Have fun creating your gnome wine toppers! Let me know if you make them.
