Gnome Invasion!

We have been invaded by Gnomes! I am crazy for these little fellas! Gnomes are the cutest things ever! After I saw how you could make these gnomes and so simply too, I went nuts and made a ton of them! Plus I got this stamp set which really made my day! So guess what our Christmas card will be this year? Yep…GNOMES! Oh they are cute! Here are some of the creations! Gnome invasionGnome Invasion Gnome Invasion Now time for you to make one or more! Step by step: Gnome Invasion After you cut your sock at the heal (I use an ankle sock) stuff the toe part with rice. About 1/2 cup enough for it to stand. Gnome Invasion Add some stuffing to make him or her chubby Gnome Invasion Tie a small rubber band around top to hold stuffing in Gnome Making You can hot glue beard on now or wait until you get the hat and nose on. This can be last. Gnome Invasion Place your fuzzy sock on top…I cut mine in half depends on the size you purchased. If you do get a bigger one use it for another Gnome. And here is where it starts…you keep making more! Gnome Invasion Hot glue your nose on the white sock. Gnome Invasion As you can see I added legs. Also the top of the sock on the hat can be formed into a ball by adding another small rubber band. Or add a pom pom. The legs are 2″ of fabric as long as you like sewn together and added pompoms for shoes. For white noses I added color by sponging with red ink. I tell you…you won’t be able to stop! Now for the cards… Gnome InvasionGnome Invasion . The set for this is by Fun Stampers Journey. I used the alcohol markers to give a bright watercolor look. I tried the watercolor pencils but it wasn’t strong enough plus it took longer. I love adding glue glitter as well as white liquid appliqué that puffs up when you heat it with a heating tool. Before you heat it, you can add glitter and when it puffs up it will sparkle! I love them all…can’t wait to make some more…happy gnome! Love deeper, talk sweeter, Lee
