Don’t be fooled, just because she’s tiny (around 6 or 7inches tall), she has a mighty decor impact! She’s ready to glam up your Halloween tiered tray, shelf, fireplace mantel, coffee bar….you get it. Wherever!

Here are the links to the YouTube video tutorial and the free downloadable patterns:

Gnomes to match my marshmallow mugs

Hello hello, my friends! I’m back this week with gnomes to share! Since I had leftover materials from last week’s marshmallow mug hats, I thought it only made sense to make gnomes to match. So not only did I get those socks and leg warmers that I used from Dollar Tree, but I stretched those dollars farrrrrrrrr! 😉

Then the marshmallow mug obsession continued when I decided that not only should my gnomes match the marshmallow mugs, but they should also be holding their very own handmade marshmallow mugs! I know, I know, it’s all just too much. Somebody stop me!

Here are the links to the video and to the free downloadable pattern for sewing the gnomes:

If you’d rather buy than DIY, there are plenty of gnomes that need good homes in my shop:

Marshmallow mug obsession!

Want to follow me down the rabbit hole? Here goes. I follow the Pink Hutch on Instagram and YouTube. She made a tutorial video for these adorable marshmallow straw toppers.

I thought they were so cute that I made them as soon as I got the necessary supplies. Then I felt silly not owning the actual marshmallow mugs. I mean, what year am I living in, anyway?! So then I promptly ordered what is probably a knock off set of marshmallow mugs from Amazon. Once I had the mugs, I had to have toppers and hats for them. I couldn’t just let them sit there with naked marshmallow mug heads. I’m not a monster!

So now my mugs have both faux whipped cream toppers (found myself another YouTube video to find out how to make those) and Winter hats. Here’s the video to see how I made the hats. By the way, they can be made using only Dollar Tree items!!!

There’s a sewing method and a no sew method in the video, so all can do this!

I also have other sewn marshmallow mug hats available in my Etsy shop for purchase.

Fall Gnome with Buffalo Check Fabric Pumpkin Tutorial

Hello All! This time I’m showing you how I make my fabric pumpkin gnome. I use buffalo plaid cotton fabric for mine, but you could certainly go with another print. Are you more of a leopard print person, or maybe paisley?

The links to the video tutorial and free pdf patterns are below.

*Quick note about the patterns

You may notice that a couple of the pattern pieces say to place them on the fold to cut, but that’s not what I did in the video. That is because I wanted to fit the pattern pieces on as few pieces of paper as possible for you to print. That became easier when I folded some of the symmetrical pieces in half and just had you cut them on the fold. Make sense? So as the famous parenting quote goes, “Do as I say, don’t do as I do.” 😉

So is there a gnome you’ve seen in my shop or on my Pinterest feed that you would like to be in one of my future videos? Let me know in the comments.

If you prefer to buy your gnomes instead of making them, you can find this adorable guy and more in my Etsy shop:

Small Scarecrow Gnome for Fall Video Tutorial

Ready to make some great Fall decor? See the video link below to learn how I made this adorable little scarecrow gnome. There’s also free downloadable patterns to help you on your way. As for supplies, most can be found at any craft store. If you have an old pair of blue jeans around the house that you don’t/can’t wear anymore (can you say “pre-quarantine body?”), that will take care of a great deal of the gnome right there.

If making gnomes isn’t really your idea of a good time, remember you can always buy ready made ones in my Etsy shop:

New Fall and Halloween Decor

While some of lasts year’s favorites will definitely make it into the shop this year, I have some new additions I’d like to share with you. First, I’ve had this great thrifted sweater material that has just been BEGGING me to make a witch wreath attachment out of it. I finally caved and gave it what it wanted. It’s a good thing I did, because isn’t this just the sweetest witch hat and pair of legs you’ve ever seen?! All it needs is for you to give it a home on your Halloween wreath. What do you say?

Next up, I don’t make jumbo gnomes often, but when I do, I don’t skimp on the details! Check out that bow on her hat, or the ones on her shoes! While you’re looking at her shoes, do you see the hand beading? Let’s not forget her luscious orange hair! Well, you have eyes, so why don’t I just let you look? Take it all in. 🙂

Now for the “normal” sized gnomes. With leopard print being as in as it is right now, I coudn’t not include it. So I made a Fall gnome and pumpkin out of it! It was really the only sensible thing to do! 😉

I decided this thrifted skull knit shirt also needed be a gnome ASAP, and that is now! There were too many good choices for beard color with this little guy, so I’m letting you decide. You can get him with an orange, neon green, white or gray beard. If you get him with his hat bent back, he will fit perfectly on a tiered tray.

Lastly, I am in love with all the glamorous Halloween decor I keep seeing. Let me have all the rhinestones and glitter! So with that inspiration, I have these super chic lace pumpkins you can attach to a wreath or to spook up a tiered tray. Aren’t they fun?

All of these Fall and Halloween inspired objects can be found in my shop. Make sure to comment which is your favorite. Thanks for stopping by!
