I have the first of the 2016 Christmas season gnome ornaments listed and ready for purchase.
Yes, I know it’s August but that’s the time I begin creating Christmas ornaments here. I’ve already added a new design for 2016 – the chilly owl. He’s named the Chilly Owl because my oldest daughter said he looked cold so we decided to add a scarf to warm him up.
I’ve also begun work on my most popular line of needle felted ornaments – the gnomes. They’ll be available in a slightly wider range of colors this year and I have opened up the custom gnome ornament listing again, but I will be accepting a very limited number of custom orders this year. Order early before my calendar fills up! In this photo you see a few of this year’s finished gnomes waiting for their hangers to be added.
The Wee Kitty Cat Tin House set was for the winner of the YellowBlissRoad.com giveaway. I love her color choices! The cat is done in the lilac felt.
The bottom two sets were also a custom request. The customer wanted the Tomten and Fox set made smaller and into ornaments and also requested a fawn ornament. Her daughter had helped care for an injured fawn that year and wanted an ornament to help remember the event.
The other pics show some of my most popular Christmas ornaments – the Santas, gnomes, and snowmen that I work on a LOT this time of the year!
These gnome ornaments have been one of my most popular items for several years now. They come in a wide range of colors and I can even customize them. Some customers have requested hair colors and eye colors to match members of their families and others have had me add initials to the gnomes’ outfits to indicate which gnome represented which family member. I’ve done couples, individuals, and entire families!
I’ve added a new line of Christmas tree ornaments for 2014. The Woodland Animals Christmas Ornament Collection will continue to have new designs added annually, but this year’s ornaments include a hedgehog and a fox. These are both available in my etsy shop.
