So my boyfriend's neighbor has these garden gnomes in their front yard, one of them being a gnome riding a snail, and it never ceases to amuse me. So while I was browsing Joann’s I was super excited to find out some of their seasonal stuff on sale consisted of gnomes, one who also happened to be riding a snail. So of course I bought it with the intent to re-paint it and make it all happy and neon colored.

But as per usual I had a little crafting accident. My cat was having one of her super hyperactive moments, and decided to run through the wet paint, and run all over my apartment as well as knocking my half way finished gnome into wet black paint. Not too much damage was done but I had a hard time trying to cover the black paint on his face with the skin tone color. Instead I covered it with bright red and turned him into a zombie gnome… riding a neon colored snail.

Are you going to replace your boyfriend's neighbour's snail with this one, complete with a 'Brrrrrraaaaaaaiiiiinnnnnnsssss' note? Wink

Nice work! I've set out to paint psychedelic lawn gnomes on two separate occasions. The first time, I ended up with something that looked like RuPaul gave the Green Man a makeover, and the second time, I ended up turning the little guy into a member of the KISS Army, complete with Paul Stanley-style makeup.

Thanks you guys! Grin No, I didn't leave it for the neighbors, I ended up giving it to my boyfriend. I am inspired to do a full size one now tho. KISS gnomes would be hilarious but I have a soft spot for zombies. If I wasn't such a wimp I would zombify the neighnors gnome, that would be epic, but as it is I will prob buy one the next time I spot one.
