  1. Start with the gnome’s body. Begin with a magic ring and work in continuous rounds to create a cylindrical shape, increasing as needed for size.

  3. Attach the hat to the body and stuff the gnome with fiberfill.

  4. Create the gnome’s arms and legs separately and attach them securely.

  5. Add facial features such as eyes and a mouth using embroidery techniques.

  6. Accessorize your gnome with Halloween-themed items like mini pumpkins, bats, or spiders.
