Add the floral decorations

Floral decorations cut apart with scissors

Cut the stems of the floral decoration so you have 3 pieces. This may vary depending on what kind of floral decoration you have. It’s usually easiest to cut the stem into smaller pieces, trimming off the ends. Arrange how you like them.

Hot glue gun with the floral decorations on the gnome wreath

Glue 3 of the pieces on the left side of the wreath. You can use more or less depending on what you prefer.

Add gnomes to the wreath

We used gnome picks. But you could use any kind of small gnomes you can find like ornaments or garden decorations. Just make sure they are small and light enough to glue on. If using picks, break the wooden picks off the gnomes.
