This year I focused on sheets of glittery foam as my medium of choice for the ornament exchange. I bought some last year but the ornament I tried to make did not end up working out. This gnome pattern was intended for felt, but it was easily adaptable to foam. Using a rhinestone-like gem for the nose made it lay flatter and goes nicely with the glitter. I have no idea how I would have cut a wooden bead in half.
