DIY Wood Gnomes

Gnomes have been quite the trend lately! You probably seen them floating around Pinterest and Instagram i'm sure. Last year I made some gnomes made out of Dollar Store fuzzy socks that turned out pretty cute. These Wooden Gnomes are not just super cute they are super easy to make! The hardest part is probably cutting the wood.

I LOVE how mine turned out and the fact that they are so inexpensive to make. The only thing I had to buy was the faux fur fabric, which I got enough to probably make 100 gnomes. But I'm sure I will find some use for the rest of it.
