Summer is without a doubt wedding season! Many happy couples are tying the knot and who is to say some of them are not cork gnomes. So for July’s gnome, I crocheted Gnorma Gnome a wedding dress complete with a bouquet and flower in her hair. This little gnome could be used as a table decoration, a mini cake topper or as a memory gnome for the wedding if you can collect one of the corks from the reception drinks. If you want to make this crochet gnome extra special make the flower and bouquet in the colour of the bridal party.
This is an easy crochet project that will bring much joy. Below is my free crochet pattern for a crochet bride gnome. Please also check out my other cork gnome patterns.
