Let’s face it, no gnome wants to be without his or her hat. They don’t even want to take them off when they take a bath! So what can be better than a costume that lets them still wear a gnome hat! This Papa Gnome and Wee Lad are sure to create merriment where ever they go in their Gnome Clown Costume! I wonder if these gnome clowns can juggle?

Directions for Gnome Clown Costume

NOTE: Wooden pegs can vary in size, even from the same company. We suggest you make a copy of the pattern, cut it out of paper, and “try it on” your wooden pegs. Make adjusts to the paper pattern before cutting out your felt.

Make a copy of the pattern and cut out felt pieces as follows:

  • hat and body wrap Color A
  • dots and ruffle Color B

Sew dots onto hat using a running stitch and 2 strands of matching floss.

Using 6 strands of contrasting floss, blanket stitch along the bottom of the hat.
