Hi friends and welcome to the backyard! As we know, Every Home Needs a Gnome. But did you also know that Every Gnome Needs a Puppy! That’s right and now you can craft one in minutes.
Are you ready to choose the size and color of your new furry friend? Let’s get started!
Materials you will need:
- Plastic Container Open On One End, Recyclables Are Awesome!
- Faux Fur
- Pom Pom
- Pink Felt
- Small Rubber Band
- Hot Glue
- Exacto Knife/Straight Blade Retractable Knife
Let’s get started!
Cut fur to wrap around your entire container overlapping by ½” also cut 2” longer so you have excess fur at the top. Always carefully cut fur pile side down with a straight blade. You also want to cut in the hairs natural direction. I recommend placing a cutting board underneath the fur as to not damage the surface you are cutting on.
Steps: 7, 8 & 9
Craft a tiny bow with ribbon and twine. Hot glue bow to tuff of fur on head.
Cut small pink oval from felt and glue to pom-pom.
Attach pom-pom nose and tongue to front of container.
How cute would an entire family of these pups be in a variety colors and sizes! And guess what their low maintenance… they don’t eat much or need to go for a walk! I hope you enjoyed this DIY and remember to always incorporate your own crafty personality into every project!
