How to Make a St. Patrick’s Day Gnome Door Hanger
Start by tracing a triangle onto the cardboard for the gnome’s hat. I wanted mine large to hang on my door. But, you can cut it any size you want.
Use your box cutter, or zipsnip cutters to cut out the cardboard hat.
Begin gluing the assorted shamrocks under the bottom of the gnome burlap hat. Alternate different sizes and colors of shamrocks. These were from the Dollar Tree. I simply flipped some of them over to vary the colors.
Continue gluing the shamrocks until the gnome beard is nice and full. Create a reverse triangle look so it represents a beard.
Cover the half styrofoam sphere with the gold gilder’s wax to give it a nice, solid gold finish. You can use a paper towel or soft cloth for this.
Glue the gnome nose just under the rim of the burlap to make it appear to “peek” out from under the front.
Hot glue the welcome sign to the front of the gnome hat and finish it off with a couple of sparkly shamrocks topped with a simple zip tie bow in the corner.
Attach a zip tie to the back of the burlap and secure it with a small piece of cardstock and a little hot glue.
Hang the sweet gnome on your front door, or inside and wait until you see how your friends and family smile when they see this little cutie!
Doesn’t this sweet gnome door hanger look just darling on my front door?
