How To Make Gnome Easter Eggs
1 – Whether you chose to turn plastic eggs into gnomes like we have or if you’re using wooden or real eggs, you’ll need to start your gnome craft by painting the eggs a skin colour.
2 – To make your gnome hats cut out a 4 inch tall triangle out of your card stock and round the bottom a little.
3 – Roll up the card triangle to make a pointed gnome hat and glue the edges together. (Measure it around the egg to make sure you have the right size before glueing.)
4 – Next glue the card hat to the top of the Easter egg.
5 – The gnome’s beard is made by glueing on mini marshmallows which is lots of fun. We used about 8 mini marshmallows on the outer beard and 3 on the inner beard. As you can imagine we did enjoy eating a few as we decorated our gnome eggs! Make sure nobody eats any marshmallows that have glue on them!
6 – The cute gnome’s nose is made by gluing on another marshmallow and painting it with the same skin coloured paint.
7 – Finish off decorating your gnome Easter eggs by adding on some eyes and a smile with your marker pen.
We love this cute ‘n’ easy Gnome Easter Egg craft and hope you do too! Why not paint each gnome easter egg a different skin shade and try out different coloured hats? Make sure no one eats the glued on marshmallows!
