If your child has a custom party to attend tomorrow, this is an easy custom to throw together in the matter of an hour! On my son's first Halloween he became ... a garden gnome .

Truth to tell, when we start talking customs, my husband and I often get very excited and suggest one extravagant idea after another So, for my son's first Halloween, we were planning to make a little sheik's costume - scabbard, turban and everything. But it's not a good idea, but it's not a good idea.

All of a sudden, my husband announced, "Do not you think a garden gnome costume would look cute? "

I was hesitant. "Well ... It is certainly not the prince of the dessert I imagined, but if I think about it, the turban will probably not stay on, and the scabbard will get lost after being professionally drooled on, so the garden gnome may be a better idea. "

Just like this, our little sheikh has been turned into a gnome. So what do you need to make a garden gnome costume?

Materials - An over-sized sweater . A pair of bulky pants . - A pair of high boots . Rubber boots will do the job well. It has been raining on Halloween for the last three years here, too! - Red and white felt . - Big buttons . - An old belt .

It produces striking yellow flowers in the shape of a trumpet that open between yellow bracts arranged in the form of a fan. It can be purchased with flowers throughout the year, as growers manipulate the photoperiod to flower outside its season.

1. Measure the circumference of your future gnome's head. Then, decide how tall you want the hat to be. Those are the two numbers you will need.

2. On a piece of paper, draw a straight line

in any direction, starting in the center of the paper - make the line as long as the hat will be tall.

3. Using a compass or a pencil on a string, draw a circle using one end of the line at the center and the other end at the edge of the circle. You will only need part of the circle for your pattern - the same length as your gnome's head circumference. Start measuring where the straight line meets the circle, then make a mark where the circle will end. Draw a line from there in to the center. When you are done, your pattern will look similar to the one below.

4. Add 1 cm seam allowance all around the pattern. Transfer the pattern to the cloth, then cut it out . Fold the cloth in two, then sew up the open side of the cone. Hem the bottom .

As for the beard, all you need is to transfer the beard design onto the white felt, cut it out and sew the ends to the hat. The beard will act as a chin strap, and help to hold the hat in place.

The garden gnome is ready to go on an adventure!

My little gnome has outgrown all of those clothes by now - except for the 4T sweater. I packed his gnome hat in a small box, labeled "1st year" - it was one of the keepsakes left from that year that I wanted to save.
