As Christmas approaches we are always looking for novel ways to decorate our home. In recent years gnomes have become a popular decor choice for all seasons of the year!!

I know my Valentine gnome looks picture perfect on a Valentine Card and my Halloween gnome brings all the scariness of a witch! 

Of course the most popular time of the year to decorate is Christmas! Christmas ornament crafts are very popular! I have made lots of great things with my kids including my clay pot gingerbread craft and my toilet paper roll angel for the top of the Christmas tree. 

Gnomes are a great idea for decor at Christmas time. They can be made in Christmas colors to represent Santa Claus! 

These cute gnome tree ornaments craft can be made in 10 steps. Mum or an adult will have to do most but kids can help them!
