With Halloween just around the corner, now is the perfect time to start thinking about costumes for your little ones. This Felt Gnome Hat and HTV Apron Costume is a great choice if you’re looking for something that works easily with your child’s existing wardrobe. This is such a cute and simple costume — you may even have the perfect dress for it all ready to go!
This felt gnome costume is great for beginners as everything comes together rather quickly. To speed things up even more, we recommend using a cutting machine. Ready to get started? Take a look at the list of materials and tools below.
To Thy Gnome Self Be True!
In addition to being incredibly cute, this felt gnome hat and HTV apron costume is also incredibly easy. The hat comes together so quickly with some ironing and a bit of hot glue. The hat we designed is sized for a child, so you’ll want to size up accordingly for an adult.
The apron we used is linked below and includes an upper portion we chose to cut off, but we think it will look just as precious if you decide to leave it intact. To create the mushroom applique, we used HTV in shades of mustard yellow, olive green, ballerina pink, and shades of white. Just perfect for a sweet little gnome, don’t you think?
Once your gnome is ready to roam, we’d love to see a picture of your handiwork. Don’t forget to upload a pic in our crafters’ community or on Instagram with the hashtag #MadeWithLia.
