Needle felt gnomes have a habit of gathering in December, usually just before Christmas. Last December was a bit hectic here as several gnomes were needed for Xmas presents.
A handful of friends asked for instructions on how to make these lovely needle felt characters.
So, rather than write out the basic instructions, I created an easily accessible class: ‘Learn How To Create Needle Felt Gnomes‘, to show the step by step needle felt process, as I make one.
Most friends already dry needle felt (some also wet felt), however this needle felt gnome tutorial is suitable for anyone from beginners level up to follow along with the steps of creating needle felt gnomes.

Next Christmas may feel like a long way off yet, but you know how quickly time rushes by. Get started now if you can, as needle felting is a pleasantly slow hobby. It will be Christmas before you know it!

Expand on the basic shape
In the class we begin with the basic shape, and from there, the gnomes are formed. However, there are many other characters you can make from the same starter shape.
