When it comes to Christmas decorations, I’m a big fan of buying them pre-made and ready for me to display. But then I saw the DIY tree gnome craze, and I thought, hey this is something even I can do.

Even though these DIY tree gnomes are simple, they’re also simply adorable! After all, what’s not to love about a Christmas tree wearing a big red hat and red gloves?

Add in a red ornament or some produce, like a pumpkin, potato, or squash, for the nose and you’ve got yourself a super cute tree gnome.

Decorate the trees you already have in your front yard. If your trees are tall, no need to get out a ladder; simply tie a sash near the base and add white tinsel streamers for a beard.

Alternatively, use some fallen fir tree branches, attach them to a tomato cage, decorate them. Or, wrap up some fake garland around a wreath stand and dress it up.

See what I mean? So so so many fun ideas, and they’re all easy peasy and only take a few minutes to create (as long as you have the supplies already on hand).

Chances are your kids, like mine, will also get a total kick out of them. That’s another reason that this DIY tree gnome project is 100% worth it.

    1. Hi, Trish! It’s all listed in the post! For more ideas: you can use a sash and tinsel to make the beard (or even a fringed party garland from the store), a balloon or ball for the nose, a large hat or even a plaid pillowcase for the cap!
