If you can’t spend the holidays hanging with your homies, why not make yourself a gnomie to hang with?! That’s just what we set out to do in this holiday DIY. We were truly winging this one, but we are in LOVE with how it turned out.

And the good news is that this one only requires a few materials, and it can be done in just an afternoon. So gather up some spare Christmas tree branches and a few other things and follow along as we make a Christmas gnome for this holiday season.
