Just look at this adorable Macramé Santa Gnome! It goes together quickly with all the right supplies. See where I found the PDF to make this charming little ornament!
Step 1. Purchase the PDF of the Instructions
Please support the artist, Monika Pietrzak @ Plecione from Poland, by buying her PDF. The cost is only $5.40 at the time of making this video. Here is her link. Her PDF has a ton of tips and every step includes photos. She also has angels and tree projects that are too cute!
Here is my order, I was able to use PayPal and then quickly download the PDF.
Step 2. Purchase the Products
Here are quick Amazon Affiliate links to the products I used. You might want to purchase more beige if you are making multiple colors of Santa’s hat. I am starting with the wine red for my Santas. When you use my links, I make a few pennies at no additional cost to you! Thank you!

Step 3. Watch my Video for Tips
After making a few Santas, I learned the following:
- Work on a craft mat to protect your table
- Use a ruler to measure your cotton cording
- Use sharp fabric scissors to shape the beard
- If you have wooden embellishments in your scrapbook stash, get those out to use them up
- Snowflakes, reindeer, hearts, bells, etc. all make cute decorations for his hat
- Save your toilet paper rolls or wrapping paper cardboard for the hat brim
- Add a dollop of clear drying glue to the white beard cording to hold it in place
- Use a pet comb to untangle the cording, start near the bottom of the beard
