Part of a cute woodland crew, this Little Bearded Gnome dons a fake fur and has a getup made from felt, fabric, hot glue, and ordinary kids' clothing. See his pals Dotty Toadstool and Tricky Gnome on Toadstool for other options.
HAT: Measure and mark an arc on the felt square as shown. Cut along the line.
Run a line of glue along the bottom edge, then form the felt into a cone and let the glue dry. If the hat is too big, trim or fold its brim.
BEARD: Draw or trace the beard shape onto the fake fur's back side, then cut it out. Cut 3 one-inch slits as shown.
Fold the tabs over the elastic cord and glue them down. When the beard's dry, have your child try it on. Tie it and trim the cord's ends.
