How To Make A DIY Mop Head Gnome
So here’s how to make a gnome with a mop head. Cut off the mop strands to use for the beard. Glue them under the edge of the jar along the front half. You can trim them how you want once you have enough glued on.
Cut the styrofoam ball in half. You can save the other half for making another gnome. Glue that to the mop strands.
Stuff a fuzzy sock up to the heal and pull it down over the lid of the jar. You may need to glue the sock in place around the edges of the jar and near the nose.
Flop the top of the hat forward and tie a knot to create a puffball for the top of the hat. I used another piece of mop strand for this.
What Kind Of Jars Can You Use
You can use spaghetti sauce jars, mason jars, or any other glass jar. I made a pickle glass jar gnome. I’ve also made them with old flower vases. When you use an old vase of a container without a lid, tape a piece of paper for a lid so the stuffing doesn’t end up down in the jar.
