Steps for Preparing Gnomes for Wreath Making

Step 1 – Begin by feeling around the gnome to see where the majority of the sand is. Once you find the heaviest sand area, try to shake as much of the sand toward that area as you can.

Step 2 – Using scissors, cut the fabric along the seam in a small area opposite where the majority of sand is. Pull out the bag of sand.

Step 3 – Add a bit of batting to the gnome to fill in where you pulled the sand out.

Step 4 – Staple the fabric to close the area that you opened. Note: If you would prefer to sew it closed, you can. Keep in mind this will not be seen once it is in the wreath.
