I love these cute little DIY clay flower pot gnomes. They are so easy to make and you probably have most of the supplies at home. You can complete several of these in no time!
This is a super quick post because these cute DIY gnomes are really that easy!

How To Make DIY Clay Flower Pot Gnomes
I like to use a mason jar for the body because the weight of the larger-sized jars will stand up to the heavy clay flower pot. I cut the gnome fur first and glued that just below the top rim of the jar and then attached the nose to the jar as well.
The hat is made with a clay flower pot. I used some green felt for the band around the base of the hat and attached it with a hot glue gun. The silk flowers were clipped from other arrangements I had around the house. You only need a couple so you won’t even notice they’re missing.
Dollar Tree had Spanish moss and I always have some of that in my craft room so I just took a small bunch and glued it to the top of the flower pot and added a small bird to keep with the DIY Spring Garden Gnome theme I was using for this particular gnome.
If you like gnomes, I have another cute DIY outdoor gnome that I think you’ll love. It’s also made with a flower pot but it’s much larger and makes cute garden art.
