How to make a Dollar Tree Gnome 

Start by folding the bottom heel part of the Dollar Tee slipper under so the faux sheepskin is showing. This will be the gnome’s beard.

Continue to flip it under until you have enough of the sheepskin showing. This represents the gnome’s beard.

Hot glue a wooden bead just where the sheepskin meets the gray slipper. The moment the nose is added it immediately looks like a gnome. I still get amazed every time I make one!

Hot glue a fun fur pompom to the top of the gnome hat. If you can’t find one, make a quick tassel from yarn.

Next up you want to hot glue a pine stem on the hat. This gives it a festive holiday look.

add the GNOME TO A WREATH…

To really showcase this little guy, I added it to a grapevine wreath layered on a fresh Christmas wreath.

Doesn’t it look just adorable? And to think this started out as a Dollar Tree slipper! I’m so happy with how it turned out.

Definitely keep an eye out the next time you are at Dollar Tree. I bet a red slipper would make a pretty gnome too.

lastly…

Add a bow on the bottom of the wreath for a little extra detail. I went with a gorgeous satin bow in a dreamy green color. Of course, I had to add a little bling with the addition of a rhinestone to the center of the bow. That’s all there is to it! What do you think?
