Stacey Solomon shows how to make your own Christmas gonks using just an old sock

THIS time last month we didn't know what gonks were – but suddenly, they're ALL over our Instagram feeds and have quickly become the must-have Christmas decoration of 2020.

In the past couple of weeks, Homebase has seen a whopping 13,000 PER CENT increase in searches for the Nordic gnomes.

But if you don't fancy forking out for one, then Stacey Solomon has got you covered.

Earlier this week, the mum-of-three showed her 3.8m followers how she makes her own DIY gonk using an old sock.

Dividing the project into six easy steps, Stacey starts by cutting the sock underneath the heel, filling it with rice and tying up the top.

Next, Stacey cut a piece of orange fabric into a large triangle, stitched it together and filled it with stuffing to create the gonk's hat.

After this, the DIY fan- who has recently launched a personalised gift range with Amazon Handmade – glued the hat onto the gonk's body

Next up, Stacey used some white fake fur to create the gonk's fuzzy beard and glued the fabric into his face.

To finish, the savvy mum cut a tealight in half and wrapped it in another stock to create the cute button nose – and if that's not enough, you can also add a pair of old tights to create some legs too.

Last month, Stacey shared her top lockdown creations with Fabulous – including a dreamcatcher and seasonal wreath.
