Picture of Wee Gnome Halloween Costume
This is an adorable boy/girl costume that is quick and easy to whip up using things from your child's wardrobe.

Step 1: Assemble what you'll need

Picture of Assemble what you'll need
I used clothes that my son already had. A cozy, primary coloured shirt, brown shorts, red rubber boots and striped legwarmers.

I bought: red fabric to make a hat, white fun-fur to make a beard & eyebrows, piece of white felt to sew fun-fur onto, thrift store belt, tiny garden tools.

You will also need a sewing maching, red thread, velcro and some basic sewing skills.
This is great. I was looking for a tutorial for a gnome hat for my toddler's Halloween costume, and yours was unbelieveably easy.
Fantastic! The hat can be reused for many occasions (we've found)! Even hubby has worn it, lol!
 You should dress your kid up like this and travel the world. 
Right on!!!! :0)!!

Your supply list neglected to mention the key element – one really adorable kid. Oh, but it looks like you already had one of those on hand! Great idea, and nice set of instructions!

I'm glad! Please remember me when voting for the Halloween contest starts! :)
This is one cute costume and one cute kid. His aunt is going to dress up like the Travelocity gnome in CA.

That is an awesome costume! The eyebrows on the cap and the tool holster are brilliant touches. Great job!
That's adorable.

This is so cute!
When I have kids I'm going to dress them up as gnomes every halloween until they can choose their own costumes :) 
Wonderful!!!  Is your little Gnome related to The very cool "Travelocity Gnome"?

I've added it to the Easy Halloween Costumes Guide!
This is precious!

I kinda want to get one of my friends to do this. I mean, he's 30 and all, but whatever. It'll be just as awesome! :D

Very nice, a living garden gnome! I love the idea.

Now, what to choose, a fishing pole or a war axe? :)
