Searching pinterest, I’ve found these great ideas for how to transform your outdoor trees into gnomes.
These DIY Tree Gnomes are a fun way to decorate the front porch for Christmas! You only need a few supplies such as a Mini Tree and boots and a cute scarf to make the hat from. They would look great at any time of the year – just change the hat to the season. They make Awesome Outdoor Christmas Decorations – and it can be achieved in no time at all! So check out these ideas for inspiration.
Pine branches are turned into these festive gnomes and red felt is used to make the hats.
To make the beard, white plastic tablecloths can be cut into strips and looped into chicken wire. The nose can be made from a bowl and spray painted in skin color. Use Tull and a big red ribbon for over the beard.

Hi Amy, you can use anything , from an old jumper or scarf and cut it into 2 pieces to make the hat from which can either be hot glued or sewed.
How much red netting was used for the top of the hat. Want to make sure I buy enough. Then, just loop around onto some kind of bow?
Hi Lori thanks for commenting, it depends on the size of your tree etc, there’s another great tutorial for how to turn your outdoor tree into a gnome here
Hope that helps!
I am using a balloon, paper strips and startch to make the nose.
These gnomes are adorable. I found white garland at the Dollar store and used that in strips for the beard. I also found a large styrofoam ball and used an old nylon stocking to cover it for the nose.
Hi Marisa, thanks for stopping by and commenting , hope you had fun making your tree gnomes 🙂 Bev
So cute and thanks for the idea. I did my beard with icicle light stands over lapping and covered a beach ball with a pink pillow case for the nose. Wrapped lights around a small beach ball for the pompom. Green lights in an arch across the bush for the hat and red ribbon and lights for the hat brim.
Super Lynette, thanks for sharing 🙂
