These fellows of few words were made from cone-shaped foam and felt, with faux-fur beards and spun cotton balls for hands and noses. To give the gnomes' hats an endearing curve, break the tips of the foam cones after wrapping them in felt.

How to do it

Part 1

Step 1

Download and print templates, scaling to the size gnome you want. Cut out, pin to felt, and cut out pieces.

Step 2

Wrap pants piece around cone. Hot-glue edges together in back. Cut out a triangle of craft fur for beard; hot-glue to front. Roll one arm piece into a cone shape; hot-glue edges together, then hot-glue to cone. Repeat for second arm.

Step 3

Wrap hat piece around top of cone; hot-glue edges together in back. Hot-glue cotton balls to ends of arms and middle of beard. Let dry completely, then break cone's tip to give hat a slight curve.
