DIY Easter Bunny Gnome

Truth be told, I was never really a gnome lover.  There, I said it... and now I'm going to show you how I made one! 😂

It all began with a pair of socks from the dollar store.

A while back I watched a video on how to make a gnome and it inspired me to create a gnome of my own.

I made a Valentine's gnome and he came out so cute, I sold it

Then I made one for my own tiered tray for St. Patrick's Day

So now that I'm starting to love them I can't break the streak so I'm making one for Easter too! 

It began with a bunny ear pick I found at Michaels, 40% off and it was a deal!

First I cut both socks right below the curve. 

2 polka dotted socks, one cut

I tied one off at the top with jute for the hat and filled the other one with rice.

You could fill it with anything weighted like cat litter or tiny pebbles. 

I tied off the top of the rice sock with jute. 

Next, fill the hat with stuffing, I used Poly-fil stuffing

Now, you are going to hot glue the hat to the base leaving a little opening for a wooden bead nose

I glued a piece of faux fur right under the hat with hot glue.

Glue the bead nose on with hot glue then put a drop of glue over the nose to hold the hat down. 

Next, I used hot glue to glue the bunny ears to the back of the gnome. 

I made 2 feet with ribbon and attached them at the base with hot glue. 

Add a bow and you're done!
