clay pot gnomes

Bring the garden indoors by turning clay pots on their head! There's gNOme doubt that these little creatures are a hoot.
Step 1

Click here to download the template. Size it fit your pot, print and then cut out the shapes.  

Step 2

Trace the hat pattern onto felt and then cut out the shape. Set the beard pattern(s) aside. 

Step 3

Add a thick layer of glue down one of the sides of the felt hat. Form into a cone shape and overlap the edges to hold together.Set aside to dry. 

TIP: Use clothespins to hold the cone together while the glue dries. 

Step 4

Turn the pot upside down and set aside to dry.  

Step 5

Choose your favorite beard shape and trace it onto the back of a piece of white sticky-back felt. Cut out the shape.  

Step 6

Once the pot is dry, align the top of the beard with the top edge of the pot and stick it in place.  

Step 7

Place the felt hat on the top of the pot.  

Step 8
Use school glue to attach a pom-pom nose at the bottom of the hat, where it meets the beard. Hold in place and let dry.
