Yarn Bombed a Gnome

Dean’s, one of our local garden centre’s have been really supportive of our yarn bomb project. They donated a couple of gnomes for us to play with, a friend has one and this is the other. I managed to get him bombed yesterday.

Yarn Bombed GnomeHe was a bit of a challenge because under his red woolly hat he is wearing a cap on sideways so the peak sticks right out. Hiding it was a bit tricky, so if you think he has a funny shaped head this is why.

Underneath the flower is a paint brush but I ran out of time to cover the paint bucket, maybe I can make it into a basket if I get time but as the event is this weekend time is what is running out eeeek!!

      Thank you, he is such a happy chappie. Maybe we will collaborate on another project in the future, mine, yours or someone else’s?

    I think your garden gnome is absolutely brilliant. I have seen a picture of a garden hanging basket filled with crotched flowers it looked very effective.

    Love it! I also have a little garden gnome I bought at our local German Festival years ago. You’ve just given me a great idea!
