Inspired by these pajamas,



I made a 1 1/4 inch garden gnome.





Here he is with a yard stick and a quarter for size comparison





The gnome is made out of sculpy. To make him, I stuck him on a toothpick and used a sewing needle to carve his features. To make his tiny rake, I cut little pieces of wire and glued them together using a pair of tweezers and super glue and then painted it with acrylic paint.

And for another size conparison, here he is, the garden gnome for the garden gnome's garden

He's so tiny and so detailed! I actually said "Woooow..." out loud.

Really great, and I'm even more amazed you made the rake! I bow to your teeny-tiny crafting skills!  Shocked
