This DIY Patriotic Gnomes craft is a fun way to celebrate Memorial Day, Labor Day, and the Fourth of July.
It’s a fitting day for red, white, and blue. First, to honor the past and all who fought for the freedoms we now enjoy.
But also to reflect on what we must do now to help guide those freedoms to benefit and protect all.

Patriotism is not short, frenzied outbursts of emotion, but the tranquil and steady dedication of a lifetime.– Adlai Stevenson
Celebrate your patriotic spirit in a light-hearted fashion by creating DIY patriotic gnomes.
Adorn your home with them or use them as party decor. Gnomes also make a lovely gift.
If you are not from the United States, create them for yourself using your homeland’s colors, symbols, or emblems.

Ruth has also graciously shared her gnome-making tips and tricks with us that she has gleaned over the years.
Her work is sprinkled throughout these gnome posts so that you can easily learn to create your own DIY gnomes.
