I saw this gnome tree on Pinterest in a real life house and I thought that it'd be fun to make in mini. Then my friend from http://ketsiaelie.blogspot.com/ had extra supplies and gave me the roping pine garland and I decided to try it!
And then Sheila from https://shenandoahandstuff.blogspot.com/ came up with a better title for my post!
You need; roping pine garland, an eraser nose (see the paper-mate sharpwriter now missing its eraser), tacky glue and red felt for the hat. And an egg carton (for shaping).
Measure enough garland as per below (using cut-out egg carton to figure out length and to shape it - but you won't actually glue it to the egg carton) and then cut it.
Cut three more pieces. Place three strands parallel and then glue the fourth strand on top. Shape it with your hands. Glue the eraser nose between the 3 parallel strands and the top strand.
Now make the little felt hat: cut out a triangle of red felt and glue the edges.
Glue that on.
And you're done!! Easy-peasy.
Enjoy the weekend!
