Step 1: Clean the surface before beginning the repair, it’s important to clean the garden gnome. Use rubbing alcohol to get rid of dirt, oil, and grease, but you can use whatever cleaning product you prefer.
Step 2: Put on protective gloves and add a few drops of Flex Super Glue to the broken area of the statue.
Step 3: Carefully put the broken piece back into place and hold for about 30 seconds.
Step 4: To remedy pieces that are not fitting together, add a few pieces of painter's tape to support the hat until Flex Super Glue was fully cured (1 hour).
Ta-Da! That’s it! Now you’re good to Gnome.

Don’t toss those flutes, fix ‘em with Flex Super Glue instead!
Step 1: Clean and dry the surface so it’s free of any oil or grease.
Step 2: Carefully apply 1 drop of glue per square inch.
Step 3: Once you’ve placed your glue, hold the flute in place and apply pressure until set (5-45 seconds). Please allow up to 1 hour to fully cure. Set and cure times vary based on application.
Step 4: Replace cap and store upright in a cool, dry location. Please note: When using the 3-gram tube (0.1 oz) from the twin-pack (liquid or gel), be sure to unscrew cap and remove foil prior to application.
