How to Make Bee and Ladybug Gnome Garland
1. Make Bee and Ladybug gnomes, and block all the pieces as necessary.
For my garland, I’ve made six gnomes – 3 Bee gnomes and 3 Ladybug gnomes. You can always make your garland shorter or longer and adjust the number of pieces as needed.
2. Making a garland.
Crochet a chain. The length of the chain depends on how long you want your garland to be. My chain is about 64” long.
Leave on each end about 5-7 inches for tying the garland, then arrange the pieces.
Using a sewing needle and matching thread, carefully sew each gnome to the string. Your crochet gnome garland is complete!
