Tips for Making a Flower Pot Gnome

To ensure the best results when making your Dollar Tree Flower Pot Gnome, here are a few tips to keep in mind. First, consider the size of your flower pot and choose one that suits your preference. While we used a 4-inch pot in this tutorial, you can choose a smaller or larger pot depending on your desired outcome.

You will want to use a high-temperature glue gun for better adhesion. This will ensure that your gnome stays securely attached to the flower pot. When cutting the faux fur, use a sharp x-acto knife to ensure a clean cut. Make sure to cut the bottom corners of the fur so that it fits nicely around the flower pot.

When gluing the fur to the flower pot, use a small amount of glue and press firmly, but be careful not to press too hard and distort the fur. And for some extra fun add some extra embellishments to make your gnome truly unique and personalized!
