Garden Gnomes – Fun Outdoor Display Ideas

A Reader Shares Some Garden Gnome Photos

I received an email the other day from Pat, one of the many The-Artistic-Garden friends who contact me to share their ideas and photos. Pat thought we’d all enjoy seeing these gnome photos, and I agreed. So here goes:

Hi Claudia,
Just wanted to tell you how much I enjoy your web site and also to send you a photo of the gnome display my step-dad has in his yard. The round balls you see are something he got years and years ago from a place where he worked. I have no idea what they are made of but probably cement.

Additionally, I also have included a photo from a company that is selling these “gnome stealers” and they are getting about $40.00 a set for them. I’m sure some of your readers could make their own and they are just toooooo funny!

All the best,

Well thanks Pat for taking the time to send these to me. LOVE those gnome stealers – way too funny!!! ๐Ÿ˜€ I’ve never seen those before, either.

And Pat, youโ€™re right, Iโ€™ll bet there are many people that know how to weld, or know someone who will help them, to make their own homemade gnome stealers. (If anyone out there reading this blog has ever made garden gnome stealers – please let me know. I am sure there are lots of other garden art enthusiasts who’d would want to give that project a try.)

Thanks to you, and your step-dad, for sharing the cute garden gnomes display photo with all of us.

    I am very aware of the actual creator of these exact “Gnome stealers ” as you have called them. They are actually called GBG’S or GNOME BE GONES. Copyrighted by man/company Fred they sell in 3 different sizes and have all kinds of other amazing metal art. Check out HIS art for sure ๐Ÿ˜Š
