my little Gnomie. {how to DIY a gnome costume}

Since my boys were born just about, every year I've asked them if they wanted to be a gnome for trick or treat time and every year I got shot down...until this year.  I asked Aaron what he wanted to be and he said "I don't know, you pick"...yesssss!  I got to work!
The best part is that if you really want could get away with only making the beard...but I bet with some looking you could find one of those if you wanted.  I just knew that I wanted to spend as little as possible.  
The shirt and pants, I found at Target and can be used like normal clothes after trick or treating. 
The flower is a clip on and the belt is just some vinyl and velcro.  You could totally find a belt to use without making it. 

I made the beard with some fur fabric and felt but you could use just felt to make it easy.

For the boots I just spray painted some old rain boots black. 

The hat is just some felt and the stiffest iron on interfacing I could find.  
Simple, easy and most of all inexpensive.  Most everything can be re-used.  Clothes can be worn and the extra items will be added to our dress up bins.

And there you have the cutest gnome on the block! :)
