Hello and Happy Halloween Season to you! Before the day passes us by, I just want to squeeze in one more Halloween gnome tutorial. 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:
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.” 😉
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.
Guess what? Not only did I make this HUGE pumpkin spice latte drinking Fall gnome as my 500 Etsy Sales giveaway, I also filmed the making of it to share with you! I’ve only made a handfull of DIY videos, so watch it and give me some constructive feedback. It would be much appreciated. 🙂
Here are some free pattern pieces to help with making this gnome:
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!
