|The overall-ed helper|
There was a person who thought it would be awesome to have a gnome Christmas tree. She enlisted the help of her crazy talented brother and her overall-ed helper and with a whopping budget of zero dollars, set about to create the greatest (and maybe only) gnome Christmas tree in the world.
She was so happy with the results she took a gazillion pictures and blogged about them.
And then she became famous and made a gazillion dollars.
And then she said, "gazillion" again just for funsies.
In case you're wondering, that was a mostly true story. Also, I was in my pajamas for two days trying to get it done. The overall-ed helper and his sister were not very cooperative.
Behold, The Greatest Gnome Christmas Tree in the World!
|I'm pretty sure the weird black blob at the bottom is |
the Spirit of Christmas Awesome
... or possibly the dog
|Decorated with a collection of last year's ornaments, ribbon from my wedding (still!), some of mom's|
ornaments, jute, burlap and miscellany from my craft stash and pure awesomeness in the form of ...
|tiny gnome hats! (made with felt triangles, jute twine and hot glue)|
|tiny polymer clay mushrooms! (made and painted by my brother and I)|
|a giant gnome hat! (made with fabric from the craft stash)|
And the best part ... polymer clay gnomes for each family member made by this crazy guy >>>>>>>>
Believe it or not, he wasn't adopted :)
We have Pop Pop Gnome:
Ethan Gnome with dreads and weaponry:
Luke Gnome skiing down an invisible mountain of awesome:
Josh Gnome (upside down, of course):
T Dubbs Gnome catching a ride:
And there ya go!
Totally worth a gazillion dollars, no?
What meaningful Christmas ornaments/decorations do you have? Do you love gnomes, fairies, talking donkeys, and the like? DO YOU REALLY WANT TO WEAR THAT GIANT GNOME HAT?!?
I most certainly do :-)
