Gnome Home

At Target a couple weeks ago, Eliza and I found this cute gnome guy that you stick in your plants and some mushrooms to go along. I had this really wide shallow pot that my mother-in-law gave me and didn't quite know what to do with it and decided I'd make a little gnome land for Eliza to play with. Now hopefully she'll leave my poor plants alone, I don't think they enjoy being dumped out every few days!
Shallow, wide, pot
Some PVC Pipe fittings
The little gnome guy
And some small mushrooms

My little helper bringing in all the supplies


I put in the plants first with the caladium in the back and moss in the front (I'm hoping it spreads around the whole pot?) and then I decorated the gnome house. First, I painted it with an off-white texture spray. Next, I painted the top (roof) red.

And then I painted this little stone and wood door. It turned out better than I expected!


Ta-Da! Our own little gnome haven!
