  1. Wooden bead or fabric for making a gnome nose.
  2. A sock, fabric, felt or a glass jar for making a gnome body.
  3. A hat for a gnome can be made from felt, fabric, or other exciting objects.
  4. Stuffing like Polyfil, rice, or poly pellets.
  5. A gnome beard that can be made from yarn, faux fur, or even Dollar Tree duster refills.
  6. Yarn or fur to make gnome braids if you want to make a girl gnome.
  7. Seasonal decorations to make your DIY Christmas gnomes festive.
