Gnome Home Project – Update #4 – Final?

IMG_8274

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

Old tree stump, gnome home to be

Old Tree Stump Gnome Home

I recently felled some old, dead fir trees here at Whimsical Woods and cut one large stump about 5’ hight.Old tree stump, gnome home to be

I will be creating a gnome home and setting over the next few weeks and will post its progress. Let’s see how this comes together with a series of photos.

If you have an old stump on your property that you don’t know what to do with, this is a possible solution. Even if you don’t have a chain saw to make a peak, you can cover the top with wood, branches, moss, etc. to make it look like a gnome home! Or, a fairy home. Have fun!
