Don’t you just love little Christmas gnomes?! I always have to make some new felt ornaments for the tree, so I decided gnomes would be a fun theme. These felt gnome ornaments are a set of three, and they are each carrying something Christmas-y. And of course I’ve got a free pattern so you can make them yourself!

To make these felt gnome ornaments, you’ll need:
- free pattern (instructions to download at the bottom of this post)
- felt in various colors
- embroidery floss or thread in various colors to match
- ribbon or yarn for hanging
Step 1: Use the templates to cut out the ornament pieces.
Step 2: Place the beard cutout on top of the shirt cutout. Place the nose on the top middle part of the beard and stitch around it, making sure to stitch through all three layers to attach the beard to the shirt.
Step 3: Place the hat cutout on top of the base cutout and stitch around the sides (left and right), but keep the bottom side of the hat cutout open for now. Now would also be a good time to add a ribbon for hanging if you want it between layers, or you can add it at the end.
Step 4: Place the shirt (stitched with nose and beard) on the bottom of the base and tuck the top of the shirt under the hat cutout.
Step 5: Stitch the bottom of the hat and begin stitching around the side of the shirt and base.
Step 6: When you reach the bottom side, insert the shoe cutouts between the base and shirt layers and stitch them together.
Step 7: Leave a small opening and stuff the gnome with fiberfill.
Step 8: Stitch the opening closed and add an accessory by sewing or with hot glue.
Repeat the process for all of the gnomes. Aren’t they cute?! Which one is your favorite? I think I like the candy cane one best.
