Perfect Fall Decor: The Scarecrow Gnome

Two blog posts in two days?! Surely this isn’t Crafty Josephine’s page? You’re not lost. I’m just finishing up a lot of new gnome designs all at once and can’t wait to share them. You probably will get a bit of a break from me now, lucky ducks. ;-P

Anyway, can we talk about this guy? Generally speaking, I like the gnomes I make, but this scarecrow really makes me smile. The great thing is he makes great decor from early fall to Thanksgiving. I was stressing about making a straw hat for him, but I think the burlap hat almost fell together with little help from me. I’m also really digging the little details, like the hand sewn patches on his hat and the beady eyed crow perched on the arm. I just love him! Don’t buy him, I think I want to keep him. Okay, you can buy him if you really must. 😉

JUMBO Fall Gnome!!!

Love gnomes but think you would love them even more if they were gi-hugeous instead of small? You are right! This sweater weather lovin’ gnome stands two feet tall and is ready to make a BIG impact on your Fall home decor.

His body, arms and nose are made of felt, his hat and mittens are made of a thrifted sweater, and he’s holding a hand embroidered pumpkin. Let’s not forget to mention the darling button and bow accent trimming that tall hat, either. He’s out to make an impression this Autumn, right through Thanksgiving.

You can find him and other Fall gnomes in my shop:

Is It Fall Already???

As someone who found her Michigan winter lasted much longer than she would have liked, I hate to rush through Summer and start thinking Fall already. However, as a crafter and Etsy seller, I must think ahead. So yes, at least here in my house, and let’s face it in the stores too, it’s starting to look like Fall. I’ve rummaged through my most Autumn-inspired thrifted sweaters and have started creating these sweet little guys.

 

There are even plans in the works for jumbo gnomes. That’s right, I said it…JUMBO GNOMES! There are so many Fall-themed accents I think might be cute to add to my gnomes. Comment below what you would want your gnome to have. An accorn, a pumpkin spice latte, or a cornucopia perhaps? So many possibilities! Thanks for stopping by and keep enjoying your Summer!;-)
