Happy Birthday Gnome Wall Art

My friend Tara's birthday was a week ago. we both love gnomes, so I thought I would make her a little something that wasn't quite a card and wasn't quite a gift. I made her this cute appliqué gnome (5" x7"). I found the inspiration for this gnome online somewhere.

 I used HeatnBond Lite Iron-On Adhesive to fuse the appliqué to the background fabric. Then I stitched around the shapes using black thread in a zigzag stitch. I mounted it on an artist stretched canvas by fusing it to the canvas with HeatnBond UltraHold Iron on Adhesive from Therm-O-Web. It irons on and adheres well and it's a no sew product.

I glued some rattail cording all around the piece and added some hot fix crystals for some bling. On the back I glued a piece of grosgrain ribbon for hanging and a small piece of ribbon to cover up the raw edges. 

The back with the grosgrain ribbon to hang the little wall art.

He looks cute hanging in my tree.

Tara liked this gnome and I hope it makes her smile when she looks at it, because it made me smile. :0)

I enjoyed making this little wall art appliqué and plan on making other applique wall art pieces in the future.

  1. This little gnome is so sweet. I love that background fabric. He’s a fun way to wish a happy birthday.

  2. I LOVE IT!! its even more adorable in person if you can believe that. I love it and I'm definitely smiling. its really even nicer than a postcard because its so firm, it has a great feel to it. of course Daryl is the queen of the perfect amount of embellishment and all the sparkle really adds to the cuteness factor.
