These are so cute!!!
Thanks bunches, Toogie! Hugs!
Wow! Sounds like a great time, and you did so well preparing for it. I have a friend who made several for sale, Christie got one for me while she was here a couple years ago. These will be a mainstay in the creative community.. . Yours look fabulous.
Didn't they all do a great job!! Thanks bunches!!!
This is such a wonderful family project. I love it. I would love to know if there are instructions somewhere for these gnomes.Such fun.
I used more than one gnome idea for this project. But the hat pattern I found at:
We used a cone and holiday socks for the body (cutting the sock straight across just below the heel). I purchased noses and beard material off the internet. We used glue for the beard and nose.
Hope that helps!! Hugs!
How adorable and what a great tradition for all each year. Thanks for sharing.
Thank you!!!! We have such a fun time! Hugs to you!!
Your tradition gets better every year!
Thanks, Suzanna!! Already thinking of next year!! Hugs!!
What fun! You have an incredible, loving and creative family. I'm glad you added the photos of the previous years of creativity. I have no doubt you be come up with yet another incredible project for Thanksgiving 2023.
Thank you bunches, Karen!! I didn't post all of our centerpieces - didn't want to bore everyone... lol. At least I have a year to think about the next project! Hope you are feeling better! Hugs!!
Wow! They're so well done!
I love the others as well. It is a great memory making tradition.
Thank you! Everyone had to use a pattern to cut out the hats and then sew them. I showed them a couple of different stitches - all in all, each one looks great, each very different!! Thanks again!!
These are so cute. What a great way to get everyone involved. Do they each get to take their creation home?
They are going to take them home at Christmas. Before that we will be all together for our son's wedding, a week before Christmas. What a group we all are! Thank you and hugs!!
The following are some of our other Thanksgiving Centerpiece crafts from previous years.......
Laura, These are so cute, as usual. For the newer Cuties, would you consider looking up your previous centerpiece posts and offering links to them, so they can see what a fun family you have?
I'd be happy too. Thank you and hugs!!
I can just imagine how much fun that was. A wonderful tradition. Thanks for sharing
It really was a lot of fun. Each year, the guys especially surprise me how "crafty" they are. The problem now, is I have to come up with a craft project for next year that will meet or beat this one! Wish me luck, I'll need it! Hugs!!
What wonderful memories your family is making . The gnomes are very cute.
Thanks a bunch - we laughed a lot while making these!! Hugs!!
Laura your family Thanksgiving always sounds fun. Love these jolly gnomes
Thank you, Caroline. I preplan as much as I can. Now that our children are grown, each takes on a meal for the group so we don't spend a lot of money going out to eat. Thanks goodness they each get along with each other and their spouses (one a fiancee). Hugs to you!!
