Mason Jar Project – Puppet Gnome In A forest of Mushrooms

Make a puppet Gnome in a forest of mushrooms. Download the Gnome Pattern that includes the mushrooms.

Supplies you will need:

Barbeque skewer

Round wooden bead

Quart Mason Jar




Hole Punch

Step 1: Punch a hole in the center of the canning lid insert

Step 2. Print and cut out the pattern. All elements have a gray outline. Cut just inside the gray line.

Step 3 Bend back the bottom 1/2 inch of each mushroom and glue to the circle.

Step 4. Place some glue in the bottom of the mason jar

Step 5. Gently fold the forest to fit through the mouth of the jar

Step 6. Use a knife or something to push the circle down to secure to the bottom

Step 7. Cut the skewer to a 6 inch length. Do not cut the tip end.

Step 8. Tape the Gnome to the skewer at the back.

Step 10. Insert the skewer through the hole of the lid and glue a wooden bead or something similar to the top. (This prevents the skewer from falling through)

Step 11. Embelish the lid as you like.

Now you can pop your Gnome up and down and move through the mushrooms.
