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

I love gnomes. Especially this tiny one. You won my vote, and I'm really jealous of the gnome sleepy pants.

That is too cute!! I pulled all the plants out in the flowerbox by the front door and planted Irish Moss there. I've decided I want to get a Gnome to watch over it! Where did you find that big gnome? That's the style I'm looking for--very traditional. I searched ebay and so far haven't seen any traditional gnomes I like.

P.S. Adorable tiny version1! Smiley

I actually found him in a strangers front yard. I drive by their house all the time and they have about 10 garden gnomes hanging out there. When it came time to photograph the little guy I knocked on their door to ask if I could take photos. They weren't home so I took some pictures quickly, but I figured they probably wouldn't mind anyway since it was all for the sake of a gnome. So thats the story, I'm sorry I don't have a gnome source for you, but might I suggest sculpy?  Wink
