How to Make Christmas Gnomes: A New One Minute Video

how to make Christmas Gnomes

Bring a little hygge into your home this season with a cute traditional Scandinavian ornament.

In Sweden, they’re known as a Tomte. If you’re in Norway, you’ll hear them called a Nisse. You might even know them as Gnomes.

Originally, they were Nordic folklore creatures who were believed to be responsible for protecting the farmstead, but make sure you treat them right or they’ll become very mischievous.

So grab some old sweater remnants, a sock and a little rice and you’ll be hangin’ with your “gnomies” this winter, too. (Gnome pun intended. Ha!)

    Are there arms on the middle gnome? If so, how did you make the arm part? Making these up for the whole family for Christmas 🙂
