My DIL and I got crafty on Thanksgiving day! She and I each made a set of gnomes.
Most materials came from the dollar store except for fiberfill, yarn and buttons (noses) that I had in stash.
And glue! Lots and lots of glue.
Socks for the bodies with a handful of white aquarium rocks for weight, stuffed the rest of the way with fiberfill. The beards were cut off of Christmas stockings and Santa hats. My gnomes are wearing hats made of socks and the top of one Santa hat, and hers sport caps made of fabric cannabalized from Christmas stockings.
These were really fun to make, and super easy!
