Gnomes have become extremely popular recently. They aren’t the old, narly creatures they used to be. Today’s gnomes are cute little fellas (and gals). Originally, the gnome was a creature people kept in their gardens for good luck. But, nowadays people keep them in their homes as they are said to bring good luck and protection to your family and your home.
These adorable gnomes would make a perfect addition to your Holiday Decor. They are also great to give as gifts for a hostess, teacher, or friend. They are available for purchase in my Etsy Shop. Click HERE to enter my shop.
The smaller gnomes are made from socks and have a weighted base to give it its shape and sturdiness. They are embellished with orange faux fur for the beard and a small wooden ball for the nose. The hat is bendable if you prefer a slouched look.
The smaller gnomes are approximately 13″ tall (with hat extended) and 3″ wide and are packaged in a cellophane bag and tied with green curling ribbon.
The larger gnomes are shelf sitters. I made a male and a female. Both are handmade using coordinating fabrics. The base is weighted for sturdiness. Attached is a stuffed nose.
The gal has orange braids with green bows. Her hat is made of felt, embellished with white rick rack, with a cute shamrock bow attached. She is holding three sequined shamrocks. She measures approximately 19″ high (not including the legs that dangle) and the body is approx. 6″ wide.
The fella has an orange faux fur for the beard and mustache. The top hat is made of glittered fabric. He is holding a glittered Shamrock. He measures approximately 9″ high (not including the legs that dangle) and the body is approx. 5″ wide.
This adorable little Tooth Fairy Monster is a project designed for Cricut Maker. It’s so simple to make using Cricut Maker and Design Space. Just insert the pattern into Design Space, lay your fabric onto your cutting mat and cut the pattern with Cricut Maker. You do need very rudimentary sewing skills to sew the pieces together.
This stuffed tooth monster is about 4.5″ x 6″ when finished. It has a pouch on its tummy to put the tooth in, for an exchange to a coin or dollar bill(s). It’s been a while since I’ve had to pay the Tooth Fairy, but I do believe the rate has gone up!
If you are not inclined to make it, this little fella is available for purchase in my Etsy shop. I will be making the female version, so stay tuned!

Hey folks, I haven’t posted in a while because I had a very busy holiday season which lasted right through January. But I am back with these adorable Valentine gnomes. Gnomes are very popular right now and they are so fun and easy to make.
These gnomes were available for purchase in my Etsy shop but they are sold out. I already made gnomes for St. Patrick’s Day which are currently available for purchase in my Etsy shop. I will be posting them here later today. So stay tuned!
This gift set is designed and cut with Cricut and Design Space. I copies and pasted the wine glass and connected them and then I used the slice feature to cut out the wine glasses on the tag. The card is a shaker card filled with gold sequins.
Tag #M46F85 from Tie the Knot
Wine Glass Silhouette #M8EAA57D from Restaurant Icons
A2 size card using kraft paper that i embossed with the Cuttlebug and Swiss Dots folder.
The poinsettia is a stamp from Gina K. Designs A Year of Flowers. I stamped the flower on red cardstock and the leaves on green cardstock and then bleached the images. I added gold Stickles to the center of the flower.
This cute little gingerbread girl is an A2 size card made with Cricut and Design Space. I welded the gingerbread image to create the card base. I used the “splash” image to cut the pony tails and hand cut the hair.
Gingerbread girl is MRSCLS #M41DF4 from Paper Dolls Dress Up
Pony tails are Splash #M38E4B from Create A Critter
Face is stamped using the faces from Peechy Keen stamps
This bottle tag is made using Cricut and Design Space. The Tuesday Throwdown Challenge #415 is “Crazy Circles”. So I cut out a bunch of circles and pieced them together to form the candy cane. The door tag is #M3362E from Tags, Bags, Boxes and More.
I love making these wine tags…they are a great alternative to the traditional wine gift bag. Using the Cricut and Design Space I cut out the tag, penguin and sentiment and attached all the pieces together.
