Cheers to kicking off the holiday season with Cheerwine! Cheerwine is one of the nostalgic drinks that when you take a sip it brings back happy memories with family and friends. I am so excited to partner with Cheerwine to create more memories and make fun glittery gnomes with empty Cheerwine bottles! This a great project the whole family can work on together this holiday season!
- Cheerwine Bottle - After you enjoy it! (rinse it out)
- Red Glitter
- Felt: Red, Green, White
- Gold Sparkly Pipe Cleaner
- Sequin Trim: Gold & Red
- Silver Pom-pom
- Wool Felt pom-pom in tan
- Glue Gun
- Scissors & Pinking Scissors
- Painters Tape
- Spray Adhesive
- Look Thick Week Knit Fuzzy Yarn in White
- Free Template for the Jacket, Hat, Arms & Hands
- Begin with an empty 12oz glass bottle of Cheerwine Soda.
- Carefully cover the logo with painters tape, making sure the edges are lined up.
- Use spray adhesive to cover the rest of the surface of the bottle.
- While the adhesive is still tacky, begin to dust the bottle with glitter and let dry.
- Next, cut and trace the jacket, hat, arms & hands out of felt from the template provided. (Red felt for the arms and hat, White felt for the hands & Green felt for the jacket).
- Hot glue the hands to the arms. Then wrap and glue the sequin trim around the arms, alternating the colors.
- Once the jacket is cut from the template, trim the sides and bottom edges with pinking scissors.
- Fold the top side of the jacket down and glue the arms in between the flap on both sides.
- Next, hot glue the edges of the felt cut from the hat template into a cone shape. Then fold the first inch of it backward to create a brim and glue the pom-pom to the tip of the hat.
- Cut about 2-3 inches of thick loose weave yarn to hot glue to the inside edge of the hat, creating the gnome's beard.
- Glue the tan wool pom-pom in the center where the brim meets the beard for the gnome's nose.
- Last glue the top center of the jacket to the back of the hat, and as a final touch wrap the sparkly pipe cleaner around the gnomes “waist” to hold the jacket in place.
How cute are these guys!
