Custom, 6 inch, hand felted gnome, just how you like it.
Have me make you a custom gnome six inches tall. Completely your choice, color, gender, hat style.
Make a gnome that resembles someone, matches your home or signifies a season or event.
Available in up to two weeks depending on materials needed and how many ordered. I will give you an estimate at the time of order.
(Gnomes pictured are examples and are not for sale.)
These horribly cute gnomes are hand felted by me. They are individually made from head to toe. The hats are made of various wool that has been blended to create a unique fabric and creatively adorned, no two are the same. Beards are made from Teeswater and/or Wensleydale locks.
Here is a guide to help you come up with your customization:
All gnomes start out with a bundle of wool then a nose is stuck on it.
Then I get the locks out.
1. Would you like traditional white locks or would you like to mix it up with dark browns and greens, oranges and blues?
Then comes the hat.
Then we have to think about color.
2. What colors do you want to be included? Is there a preferred primary color? Is there a theme?
And that is basically what I need. Then I make something up and show you the pictures, maybe ask a couple more questions then you say "ok," or "what about...".
If you want pictures of any of the materials (like locks or wool) let me know.
Be sure to see all of my premade gnomes at Gnomes For Your Homes.
Unfortunately, because of the handmade nature of the gnome, I cannot say he is safe for children. Please message me if you have any concerns or questions.
Photos have been taken in natural light. I have done my best to match the real-life colour, however, because monitors and phones are different, there will be some colour variation.
There is various folklore surrounding Gnomes. They are usually portrayed as small magical beings that mostly live underground. They protect Mother Nature' s animals and precious gems and metals.
Nisse/tomte are thought to bring good luck and protect the homes, animals, farms, gardens, and people that treat them nicely. However, they may cause mischief to those that harm them. In Scandinavia, the nisse was said to deliver gifts to the door.
How they are shipped
Each gnome is put into an organza bang and wrapped in beautiful tissue paper. He is safely placed in a thick cardboard box for their travels.
The time I need to prepare an order for shipping varies. For details, see individual items.

I love working on customised orders. Message me with details such as:

*Size from top to bottom
*Do you want a doll (one with hands and feet) or hidden body?
*Theme (if you have one) and colours.
And any other information.
I will make the gnome to your description, send you some photos and then you can accept the gnome. Price usually depends on the size of the gnome.
These are ornamental gnomes and are not meant to be toys. Depending on the wool used for the hat, they can be a bit fragile. Because it is handmade, there is always the possibility of hair and noses to come off if pulled too hard, however, I do put them through a rigorous pulling test to ensure this doesn't happen.
These gnomes cannot be washed, but a light pat can help get rid of any dust.
When the gnome arrives, it's hair may be a little flat. Hang the gnome upside down and gently twirl. The hair should bounce back.
International shipping times
My experience posting to America has been positive, however, I have noticed there is extreme inconsistencies with how long it takes to arrive. I have found that the West Cost receives the items within two weeks, whereas it can take four week for the East Cost.
Please allow four weeks for your gnome to arrive if you have ordered internationally.
Packaging and Gift Packaging
I am happy to send items as a gift to your chosen person. Message me a note and I will be happy to include it. If you would like the gnome in a little gift bag, I can do that too.
The gnomes are wrapped in coloured tissue paper and an organze bag for their journey.
