Gather your supplies.


Cut the tissue paper roll tube to 2.5- inches in length.


Cut the pieces for the gnome body (you may need to increase the length of the piece if your tissue paper tube is plumpier), gnome hat, and beard using the templates given in the attached PDF.



Apply hot glue along one of the short edges of the body piece and start gluing it to the tissue paper tube. 


Tightly roll the felt around the tube till you reach the other end of the felt. Apply hot glue along the other end of the felt and glue it to secure.


Hot glue the straight edge of the beard along the upper edge of the gnome’s body.


Apply glue along the straight edge of the gnome hat piece, roll it to form a cone, and glue it to get the gnome hat.


Next, apply hot glue along the upper edge of the gnome body and attach the hat to it.


Glue the nose just below the hat in line with the tip of the beard. Glue the star at the tip of the hat and your Christmas gnome is done!

Hi Surayya,

Thank you for the cute gnome instructions - I will be making them for the children in our neighborhood.

The little houses are cute, too but way beyond my patience level.
