Crochet Gnome Pattern Gift Ornaments

It’s that time of year for gift giving! And these Crochet Gnome Pattern Gift Ornaments are a perfect last-minute make. You can put a little gift inside!! In fact, they’re great if you’ve got some belated gifts to give this year because while they’re “Christmas”, they also just have a general cute “winter” feeling to them.

Thoughts on Santa, Gnomes, and Traditions

I’ve been giving a lot more thought to the holiday traditions with my oldest questioning the jolly old Santa. I’ve been going over and over in my head how I might approach giving him the whole truth if he asks.

While we don’t put a lot of emphasis on Santa Claus, his peers and outside social environments do. I never wanted him to feel as though we weren’t truthful. However, I also never contradicted those around him, so now I have a bit of a Christmas pickle going on. 

That said, I figured since so many parents have come before me, maybe they would have some insight. So off to search for books I went, and as luck would have it, authors are all over this topic. I discovered a book that will go great for that moment he presses me on more reliable answers. It’s The Wonderful Truth About Santa by Jessica Jansen.

The (Wonderful) Truth About Santa

How about you? Have you had to approach the ‘Santa’ talk with a questioning child?

What This Crochet Gnome Pattern Has To Do With That

In the spirit of showing my son why we give gifts today, I came up with this quick crochet gnome that hides a little gift. Because the book explains Santa and why he wanted to be anonymous and protect the gifts. So what better way to do just that in my little style. I’m going to let him hide something small in one for his brother. 

And if you need a quick teacher, friend, or neighbor gift, this works great as an ornament and is the perfect size for the sphere lip balms.

Another great way to use the Gnome Ornament is to hide your chocolate. That way you make sure you keep the stash all to yourself. But if you are in the sharing mood, this is a great quick gift.

Notes for the Crochet Gnome Pattern:

This cute little gnome decor has a secret compartment in the bottom. It can be used to hold a lip balm ball or a secret gift. It’s a great quick gift.

Ch 1 does NOT count as a stitch. To join at the end of a round, sl st to the top of the first stitch of the round.

-Using the hook over, versus yarn over, method will lessen a traveling seam.

-Feel free to substitute any colors, I challenge you to use what you have in your stash for this quick small project.

Finishing:

Using a tapestry needle and long tails, sew hat to gnome base. The hat will sit towards the back of the gnome base allowing enough room for the nose.

Sew nose onto gnome base right underneath the gnome hat. Weave in ends.

Beards: This is also where you can get creative and decide which style of beard you prefer. If using yarn cut long strands (about 12 inches), fold in half, then pull through a stitch on the gnome and finish off with a larks head knot.

For a felt or faux fur hat, trace and cut the desired shape and hand stitch onto gnome.
