The way I tweaked this project was putting a little scarf around the gnome and later gluing it to the corner of a picture frame. I found E-L-L-I-E letter stickers and adhered them to the bottom of the frame. Then I applied a varnish sealer to the frame to further finish off the look.
Now the picture frame is placed inside a little cubby shelf that is above the crib in our home nursery nook. The little baby in the small frame above Ellie's is her Mama's newborn picture. I love my girls! (And guys!)
