The Gnome Wine Bottle Topper is a free crochet pattern by Nana’s Crafty Home!
Oh my goodness – could this gnome be any cuter?? I fell in love with him the minute I saw him – and I know you will, too!
This pattern works up absolutely so quickly – made from a small crochet triangle with the ends folded and crocheted together. The nose is crocheted separately, sewn to the inside of the hat and then sew a small section of faux fur to the inside of the hat. Easy, peasy – you could make several of these in a night! Perfect for all of your yarn scraps, too!
These little guys would be a great way to present a bottle of wine or Champagne for a party or as a gift – everyone is going to love them. They may end up being the hit of the party! 😉 I mean, who doesn’t love a gnome, right?
I know mine are going to be making an appearance in the gift baskets we give away this year. I am sure they will bring a smile to every recipient!
I made mine with Yarnspirations Caron Simply Soft yarn* but you could certainly substitute with any yarn (cotton or acrylic) – great way to use up what you already have on hand. You could make in traditional Christmas holiday colors or these would be great year round, too.
I think these little guys would be a hot seller at craft shows, too!
