If you’ve been around here awhile, then you might know my stance on hot glue and kids crafts. I try my hardest not to use it when little ones are involved. Sometimes, though, the craft absolutely has to have it. Like our gnomes, here. For that reason, I’m calling this a teen craft, but you can definitely make it with kids as long as there’s supervision and help.

Whenever there’s gnomes involved, though, it’s gotta be sweet and it’s gonna be super cute. These gnomes also use one of our favorite materials, yarn, for the beards. All combined, this ornament craft will definitely add some fun to the Christmas tree.
