Dirty Little Santa Gnome

You’d be dirty too, if you went down people’s chimneys. While this fun little guy is a Santa Claus he could be a gnome for any season when dressed in other colors. If you don’t like the dirty look, you can easily choose a whiter color for his beard.

Check out our library for a FREE printable pdf. The pattern is in color so you can print on white card stock and cut the pieces out or print out a paper pattern to be used over and over. We recommend using a small punch at the top out Santa’s hat for hanging. Alternately you could sandwich a string between the front and an added body blank adhered to the back. Better yet why not make him double sided? One clean and the other dirty! Just remember to mirror image the pieces on the back side.

Want a SVG cutting file?

Not only will a cut file be available for the Dirty Santa Gnome, there will be a bonus gnome design. Plus learn how to upgrade them both.

Maybe you will choose to use it as an ornament. It’s fun however you use it.

We used two piece 1-1/2″ wide faux velvet ribbon. One is 14″ long and the other is 10″ long. Be sure to use a ribbon with some body to it or choose a wire edged ribbon. Otherwise you may need use a fabric stiffener.

You might think about a red ribbon with polka dots or how about buffalo plaid?

We used black, white and gold glitter card stock.

You could also use fabric. Here are some suggestions Black felt for the boots and inside of buckle. White faux fur for the cuffs. Glitter fun foam for the buckle.

We also used a piece of yarn and a glue stick.

Wood be Gnominee

Who will be your nominee? Since each one of these wood gnomes has his only personality is will definitely be hard to chose.

Theses needle felted gnomes are super easy to create. The gnomes are made by shaping wool roving and then melding the fibers into each other by poking it up and down with a felting needle. A felting needle does not have an eye so there is threading involved – yeah! Instead a felting needle has tiny barbs on the side near the needle point. I used medium sized needles or 86mm. You will find yourself addicted to making them. Click here to key into the gnome only video.

Tonttu is a small creature from Finnish mythology. He lives in and protects the home. It is very important to treat him with respect otherwise he may become mischievous. Occasionally he can be found in the forest. Perhaps he has been treated poorly and is looking for a new home to look after – maybe yours! Some cultures may call him a gnome or tomte. I just call this elf-like creature cute. This tonttu is easy and quick to make. His spirit is ready to inhabit your home.
