Gnome Terrarium

As you may have already guessed, I love everything gnome related! This gnome stamp and die set, along with the mushroom die set, were my first Lawn Fawn purchases. There were a lot of ideas floating around my head, but I knew I wanted to make something to display in my craft room. In the end, I decided to make a gnome terrarium. Not just any gnome terrarium, though. Each gnome represents a member of the family - my husband, daughter, and myself. Although the beard my husband sports doesn't look the same, he's definitely getting there! Also if you look closely, you can see I even personalized the door of the mushroom house. Additionally, I added some moss along the bottom of the terrarium. Doing this ties together the woodsy feel of a gnome home, while staying true to a traditional terrarium. I especially like the shape of the terrarium I chose, as it adds extra character to the project as a whole. Finally, I finished it off by adding a burlap bow and a tag that says, "There's Gnome Place Like Home."




Meet my gnome family!
