I think I’m finished. This started with an old tree stump about 5’ tall. I carved a forest gnome home out of it. I just added the roof and moss and I will plant a few ferns from our woods around it for the final touch. I could add (as I suggest to homeowners) a low wattage 12 vdc outdoor spot on a timer. If you do this, use a 10 watt max and not solar – it’s too bright and too white. You want that subtle soft yellowish glow. You will be very happy with the results.

So, that’s the project from start to finish (except for the ferns). We can build these large gnome homes to order which are then transported to various locations. We also have smaller gnome homes on our website which we ship all over the country.

We’d love to hear your comments and look forward to your inputs!

Thank you again for your interest in Whimsical Woods. Maybe we’ll meet you at one of our 2015 arts and craft shows in Washington. Our spring and summer show schedule is almost set and will be on our website soon. http://whimsicalwoods.net

Visitors are always welcome to come by our studio, tho we suggest you call ahead.

No place like gnome! IMG_8272
