How to make an easy DIY Gnome Christmas Ornament

"Making crafts for decor and gifts can be one of the best things about the Christmas season! These Christmas gnome ornaments are simple to make with a little fabric, wood Jenga pieces, a cotton mop, hot glue, a jingle bell, and a wooden ball. Put a few together in an hour or so! Children can make these with adult assistance with the small amount of sewing involved. Each ornament can be unique if you use different fabrics!"
