DIY Grinch Gnome


  • Styrofoam cone
  • Green boa (I got mine from Hobby Lobby, here’s a similar one)
  • Santa hat (I got mine from Dollar Tree)
  • Wood bead
  • Hot glue gun
  • Safety Pin


Step 1

Wrap the green boa around the bottom of the Styrofoam cone, using the hot glue gun to attach the boa to the cone as you wrap. Continue to wrap up towards the top.

The boa does not need to go all of the way to the top of the cone because it will be covered.

Step 2

Place the hat on top of the cone and fold it in the back to make it fit properly.

Secure the fold in the back of the gnome with a safety pin.

Take off the hat. Using a hot glue gun, apply some hot glue to the top of the cone or on the sides and put the hat back on to secure the hat to the cone.

Step 3

Glue the wood bead directly under the hat onto the green boa to create the gnome’s nose.
