This one is pretty cool, as the beards actually look real. It looks like it was made of some streamers. Really, though, you could accomplish this look with many things.
Some tule fabric, a skin-color painted plastic bowl from the dollar tree for the nose, and some strand of white fabric from an old sheet, set of curtains, or whatever else you can think of and you’ll be well on your way!
The creator of these succeeded as it looks wonderful.

You can use your old red gloves or any red cloth and use them for the gnome’s hat. If you have garlands from the last year or even many years ago but you were able to keep them, using them this year is probably a great idea. Just decorate them a bit to make them look like a gnome.

With this one, the maker did not use streamers for the beard to make it a bit different. Obviously, it still turned out pretty cute though.
Allison Jerde even shared her own version on Instagram.
While other people want long ones, she preferred a shorter one which is perfect on her porch.
