  • thin cardboard (such as a cereal box)
  • holiday paper
  • cotton balls
  • twine
  • small wooden bead
  • glue, scissors, hot glue


1. Have an adult help you cut out a gnome beard shape and a gnome hat shape in the size you would like the ornament to be.

2. Cover the beard in glue. Pull apart the cotton ball and attach it to the beard.

3. Trace around the hat shape on the holiday paper. Cut it out with an adult and glue it onto the hat.

4. Have the adult attach the twine to the back of the hat using hot glue.

5. Glue the hat on top of the beard, leaving most of the beard below it. Glue on the small wooden bead (turned on its side) as a nose.

6. When dry, hang and enjoy!
