Custom Gnomes, A Guide.



I have made this little guide to give you a preview of how easy it is to request a custom, hand felted gnome from Gnomes For Your Homes.

Custom gnomes are an important part of my business.  I love making custom gnomes.  They are an opportunity to put together a piece of art that someone else will love.


Here's why I love custom gnomes:

  • Custom gnomes are creatively challenging and that's why they bring out the best in my work.

  • Custom gnomes allow me to communicate directly with my customers.  I get to have little conversations and get to know them a little.  

  • Custom gnomes are never run of the mill.  People usually have a theme or a person in mind.  That gnome needs to capture that person and are therefore unique and individualistic.  They cannot be copied.

What I need to know when starting on a custom gnome:

  1. Size

  2. Theme, color, inspiration

  3. Color of hair

  4. Extras

That's it.


What next?  

I pride myself on communication and customer service.  I require my customers to be constructively honest about how they feel about the gnomes I create for them.  I want you to love your gnome.

I send updates and pictures throughout the process for critique and feedback.


How long does it take?

I work on each gnome individually.  Because of the extra time gathering materials, communicating, and perfecting the gnome to your personal specs, a custom gnome can take 2-3 weeks.  Another factor is the number of other gnomes being created at that time.  Christmas can be particularly busy and I suggest starting early if you need a Christmas gnome.

I will always let you know the estimated length of time it will take to complete your creation.


Don't be shy.  Drop me a message to see what I can create for you.
