Dollar Tree Christmas Tree Skirt
Dollar Tree White Mop Head
Dollar tree Pub GLass
White Poms (Optional Small & Large)
Dollar Tree Make Up Bronzer or Powder
You will start the first easy step by turning your pub glass upside down, taking the sticker off and gluing the top with the glue gun.
You will take the mop head and drape the white mop strings down over the sides while finding the center to set it to the top of the glass.
Push it down into the glue so it will stay in place.
Then lay out your tree skirt and cut it in half. You can make 2 hats out of this.
I rolled it tight enough to fit over the top of the mop – didnt want it too loose or too tight.
Then glue the edge and sealed it to the rest of the hat to hold the shape in place before I stuck it on the top of the mop.
I brushed out the beard (mop strings) so it was laying nicely.
For this step I used two sizes of poms but you can use one size for both of these next steps if you dont want to buy two.
This was a new step I have never tried before. I used a Dollar Tree bronzer to color the pom for his nose. You can also use a powder. This is genius and worked so well!
I loved the powder over paint because there was NO drying time. I then put a little glue on underneath the bill of the hat and glued the nose in place.
Then I put a little glue to the top of the hat and stuck the other pom to it.
And that is it! I accented it with a few pines and made my second gnome.
One of my gnome is at my bar sink and the other is on the coffee table end.
They are also so cute together!
