Our DIY Gnome Costume is the cutest Halloween costume for the cheeky little elf in your life. Our no-sew pattern is easy to put together using a low temperature glue gun or fabric glue and a touch of creativity! The downloadable pattern below includes templates for the red gnome hat, the fluffy beard and the belt. Pop these items together with an over-sized blue t-shirt, a pair of green pants and your kiddos wellington boots and your gnome is ready for to celebrate! Our gnome has been busy in the garden and has a basket of fresh DIY felt veg with him. You can get the patterns and tutorials for this perfect handmade addition over here.
We used a fabric stiffener to hold our DIY gnome hat upright. And a roving felt to make that gorgeous fluffy beard. Glue the felted beard to a felt backer so that your little gnome is comfortable in his costume. We would also recommend that you pop a dot of glue in either side of the belt and stick it to the over-sized t-shirt to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions during celebrations!
