Gypsy Gnomes

05 May

Gypsy gnomes roam the forest.  If you manage to spot them and their tiny caravan and if you ask them nicely, they might tell you your fortune or offer you a cup of tea.

Meet the gnomes Olaf and Olga.  I replaced the traditional gnome felt hats with acorn caps just because they look cute.  These gnomes are made out of super sculpley clay.  Their hair is merino wool,  and their clothes are from bits of cloth and scrap leather.

Of course what would gypsies be without their caravan?  I made this caravan a few weeks before from popsicle sticks, parts from a dismantled orrery for the wheels, pine cones for the roof, a walnut shell for the window hanging pot.   Note, there’s also a tiny campfire and a table with a crystal ball.

Finally, here’s the finished Gypsy Gnomes Bell Jar.
