Ideas and options for the New Year’s gnome

Diversify the gnome figurine as you wish. Add arms, legs, braids, hair. Insert the staff into your hand, and the end of the cap can be made long and wrapped in a spiral or along a curved line. Instead of a sock, use felt or an old knitted sweater that has served its purpose.
