Creating Your Custom Gnome, A Guide

I love making gnomes. I love making custom gnomes even more. Here is the opportunity to participate in the creation of your very own special gnome in my unique style. I treat every custom gnome as my very own and because of that, please make sure that I can easily contact you through a messaging system or email. I send photographs of every step to make sure you are happy with your gnome.

A custom gnome for your home can take about a week to make because of the communication and planning involved.

 

I hope that this post will help you to feel more confident about what to expect when you order a custom gnome..

 

I have four different listings for Custom Gnomes.

  • Ornament- These gnome ornaments stand between 4-5 inches tall and around 3 inches at the base. They feature a string for hanging, and a small wood disk on the bottom so they can stand with your display.

  • Spoonie Ornament- These gnomes stand about 5 inches and feature an ultra bendy hat and a 5 inch spoon.  These gnomes are made for hanging and are not free standing.

  • 6 inch- These gnomes stand between 6-7 inches, 4-5 inches at the base. They include a wooden disk on the bottom for free standing.

  • 9 inch- These gnomes stand between 9-10 inches tall and around 6-7 inches at the base. They include a wooden disk on the bottom for free standing.​

Information I need for your creation:

Colour theme and colour combinations. This is the area we will work on the most. The most helpful item I can get from you is a picture or a theme/colour palette (Pinterest is extremely helpful). However, a list of colours or themes also works.

Hair Colour or Colours. Choose between white or ginger. Let me know any other colour combinations.

Hat brim style. Many times the style of the hat is formed by the gnome itself. The gnome chooses in other words. However, there is room for coaxing a hat style.

And that's it.
