Garden Gnome

Chubby, cute and beaded garden gnome can bring character and charm to flowers, fruit, vegetables, bushes or any garden. Rumor has it that they will make your flowers bloom faster, fruit taste sweeter, and your vegetables grow to enormous sizes. Is this true?

Garden gnomes have been perking up gardens in Europe since the mid-19th century. They are really old, way older than my great grandfather! They originated from Germany, first manufactured in Poland.

Personally, I think garden gnomes bring a touch of whimsy to any garden. Some are sweet and adorable, some look sad, but some are naughty and ‘chicky’. Have you seen them posing inappropriately? They just make me laugh! My 4 years daughter said, “That is not nice” – shame shame!

Pinterest – Funny Garden Gnomes

I thought it would be a fun project creating a small whimsical garden with this little fella.

This is my first project using real plants (white flowers), moss, white pebbles, and faux mushrooms.

Doesn’t he look adorable?
