DIY Red Christmas Gnome on Skis

Directions

  1. Pre-freeze the rice for at least 24 hours to get rid of any little buggies that may be present. Just throw the big bag of rice right in the freezer. 
  2. Fill white kid's quarter sock full of rice by scooping it in and smooshing down to get the rice as full as possible. Fill up to the sock band. 
  3. Use the heal side for the face. Using your fingers, form a sizeable nose out of the heal. 
  4. Take 2 tiny clear rubber bands and use 1 to secure the nose, wrap twice if you can. Use the other to secure the top of the sock, wrap twice. 
  5. To secure these even more and in case a rubber band breaks, wrap twine or yarn tightly around the nose and top of the head as knot tightly. 
  6. Trim the top of the white sock down. 
  7. Using scissors or a knife, hollow out the bottom of the foam cone to fit over the white sock and rest on the gnome head in the shape you would like. Fit one of the red soft socks over the foam cone. 
  8. Prepare the beard by cutting a piece of felt in the shape of the beard you want. Hold the felt up to the nose and trace a small circular cutout for the nose. 
  9. To create the beard “hair”, use a hot glue gun to glue strands of the homespun yarn horizontally onto the beard. This can be trimmed along the edges to form when finished. To create a more fluffy beard, separate the strands of the yarn to make as much fluff as you desire. 
  10. Fit a red soft sock over the white sock body and hot glue to just under the nose and up around the top of the head.
  11. Hot glue the sock covered foam cone to the top of the gnome head by putting the glue on the gnome head. Be generous with the amount of glue. Hold the form down firmly until it sets. 
  12. Decorate the hat with twine by wrapping it around and criss-crossing. Hot glue twine into place or just tuck the beginning and ending pieces around other twine. 
  13. Attach a wooden twine ball to the end of the hat by sewing with needle and thread. 
  14. Glue a wooden snowflake to the hat or use another embellishment of choice. 
  15. Glue the skis to the underside of the gnome, being generous with the hot glue. Gently glue the ski poles to the side of the gnome to look as if he is grasping them. 
  16. Make the gnomes nose a pink color by wiping some bright pink lipstick onto the nose fabric. Putting the lipstick on your fingers first to then wipe on the nose is a helpful tip.
