Today I have a very simple project for you. After I finished making the Gingerbread house I was left with this awesome cardboard box. I couldn’t let it go to waste! I used only the top part for this Gnome Tree topper. It’s a very simple thing to do. Just follow my instructions. The rest of the box will become little Gnome ornaments! 😉
Cut the cardboard to make a cone shape. Wrap the felt around it. Glue your seams as you go, but I chose to create the shape and hold it in place. Cut any excess off the felt.
Use the blush/tan fabric place cotton balls or poly filling and make it into a small 2″ ball. Tie it. Use a blush and brush to give it a little color. Apply just as you were applying it for yourself.
Cut pieces of wool (you can find it any craft stores). I used a piece of fabric to glue each strand. Attach the fur to the inside of your cone shape with glue gun.
Supplies: Cardboard paper, felt (wool optional), wool strips, glue gun, blush color fabric (any old cotton shirts that you no longer use)
