Miniature Gnome Garden

Make your own Gnome or Fairy home with some recycled items. Easy instructions to make one. This little gnome has a lovely house in which to dwell. Everything is easy to make. The garden is artificial so no care is needed!
Take a whipped topping plastic container and add tin foil, masking tape and paper towel to create the base. The roof is made from tagboard or a paper plate, burlap, and pine cone scales.
Hot glue tin foil on for the first step. You can use strips, twisted foil or do it anyway you choose. This gives it texture.
After the foil, cover with masking tape all over. Then, cover with paper towel dipped in diluted white glue. Let dry and then paint. Above, you see the three steps before painting. See website for all the steps and directions. Don't just limit yourself to a gnome home, but make a castle, barn, or anything you want!
