Dollar Tree Easy Gnomes DIY Pin

If you’re looking gnome idea, this Dollar Tree Easy Gnome DIY is it! Honey, you’ve hit the jackpot. This post is a 2-for-1. I’m going to show you how I made a Fall (honestly could be used everyday) and Santa gnomes. I made both of these gnomes at the same time, and I am SO happy with how stinkin’ cute they are!

The key features of these gnomes were made with cleaning supplies. Yes, you read that right! I used the strings from a Dollar Tree mop head, a Swiffer mop, and a duster refill for this project.

Don’t believe me?

You would never guess that these adorable gnomes were made with dollar tree cleaning supplies! Am I right? It’s amazing the things you can repurpose (and the money you can save!) when you DIY. Both of these gnomes can stand on their own, but it would be so cute to add some twine and turn them into a door hanger.

What would you do to make these gnomes your own? I have a free group on Facebook where you can share your creations and get inspired by others too. It is called On a Budget Crafts. I would love to see what you’ve made!

Everyday Dollar Tree Easy Gnome DIY

The supplies I used:

First we will start with the Farmhouse feel gnome! To make this Dollar Tree Easy Gnome DIY, you will need:

  1. Buffalo check fabric
  2. Dollar Tree mop head

  4. floral foam block
  5. floral foam cone
  6. jute twine
  7. glue gun, glue sticks
  8. White paint
  9. heat gun

Start by painting the floral foam white. I did this just in case I was able to see through the mop strings to the green foam. Next I cut down and shaped my cone floral foam so that it was just a little bit shorter. I laid out my fabric (which is one of my favorite prints) and started wrapping it around the cone to the shape I wanted. I left enough room at the top to fold over the hat. In my head I was thinking this guy needs some fringe! So I cut the tip of the fabric of the hat in strips and created a fringe look and tied it off with twine. Moving on to the last steps I glued several layers of the mop strings to the floral foam. Lastly I glued the top hat on and added him a wood bead nose.

Tell me this guy didn’t turn out just the cutest!

Now it is time to make this Dollar Tree Easy Santa Gnome DIY:

  1. Dollar Tree wood sign box
  2. Red buffalo check fabric

  7. 1 small red bell

For the Dollar Tree Easy Gnomes DIY Santa Gnome I wanted to do something different so I used a Dollar Tree Sign box and started wrapping it with all my materials. I used a Swiffer duster mop head for the beard. I wrapped some scrap strips of fabric to make his face. Next I used the duster refills to make the fluffy part of his hat and the ball on the end of his hat. A few months ago I scored this red and white check fabric at Dollar Tree and I knew it was perfect for this DIY. I laid out my fabric and basically guessed at the placement and started gluing. I finished it all off with button eyes and a bell nose! He isn’t your typical gnome but he has a gnome feel. Which I sorta love.

The possibilities are ENDLESS when you DIY!

Think outside the box and start creating things that come to mind. Trust me, you will have the absolute best time making things like this. Especially at fall and Christmas time. (which is my favorite times of the year)

I hope you loved this project, and I hope you have been inspired to get creative! Stay creative friends! See you on the next blog post #craftycrew – XOXO Amber
