Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, I love making gnomes. If you do, too, you’re in the right place! This Viking gnome came as a request from my daughter. For years, she’s loved all things “How to Train Your Dragon” and asked for a gnome to keep her dragon stuffed animals company.

To make this fun Viking gnome in a helmet, we will:

- braid the gnome’s faux fur beard

I love sharing this tips section on my gnome tutorials because, well, I don’t want you to have to make the same mistakes I did! Below are a few things to keep in mind when making this adorable Scandinavian gnome.

- Any gnome body type will work, but learn – it’s the easiest. To me, it’s also the most appropriate for this tomte, as it’s the stockiest.

- Form the horns for the helmet just a tad larger than you think they should be. I wish I would have made mine about a half inch longer on each side.

- Braiding the fur takes a couple of tries to get right, but it really brings this Viking gnome together. Work it up in a French braid style and it will help make them longer.

This Viking gnome is the perfect addition to any decor. It's fun and quick to make, so let's get started.

Nordic Viking Gnome Tutorial

- hot glue sticks and glue gun

- chalk or chalk pencil for making marks on felt

- Create a gnome body. I chose to use a sock gnome ().

- Braid the fur on either side of the nose and underneath it to resemble the multiple beard braids of Vikings.

- Cut a piece of felt about 3.5 inches tall and long enough to go around the width of your sock gnome. Hot glue the short edges together in order to form a cylinder. Squish it flat.

- Measure the height of your gnome helmet and use a chalk pencil to add a line to adjust the height of the felt . Measure 1.5 inches from the edges, make a mark along the top seam. Measure 1 inch down from the top seam, make a mark. Join the two marks together with a chalk line.

- Sew along all the mark lines . Trim them leaving about a 1/8th seam allowance.

- Fit the hat to the gnome and tack down a few points - do not hot glue the hat down all the way around as we are not finished. Fold in the corner points and secure with hot glue.

- Using white polymer clay, form two horns and 4 nail heads. See the video for more details.

- Cut a piece of faux suede which wraps your helmet and is about 1/2 an inch wide. Glue it along the bottom edge of the helmet, leaving just a small bit of the felt showing through at the bottom.
