Have you hopped aboard the gnome trend yet? Well, now's your chance! These simple — and super adorable — gnome ornaments are festive, fun, and really easy to make.

What You Need:

  • Pine cones
  • Small wood circles
  • Mini Santa hats
  • Hot glue gun and glue
  • Embroidery thread and needle
  • Embellishments (optional)

What You Do:

1. Peel back a few of the top pinecone layers to make room for the hat.
2. Use hot glue to attach the wooden ball, mini Santa hat, and embellishments.
3. Sew a thread through the back of the hat, form into a loop, and tie a knot.
4. Display your holiday gnomes on your Christmas tree.
