Made by Danielle Haggerty
I was inspired by your adorable Santa sculpture. I thought I’d make one for each of my siblings and my Mom for Christmas. Once I started they kinda evolved into gnome wizard type creatures.
I made each with my brothers and sisters in mind..Mom too! Added little beads and number charms and hung them off their hat brims marking our birth orders and painted little sayings on the bottoms for fun. I followed directions using toilet paper rolls and aluminum foil for the form and whiskers. I used all different types of papers and craft paints to cover and decorate.
I had so much fun making these! Your paper mache sculptures are pure works of art and an inspiration to me!
I’m loving the new puffer fish…it’s on my list.

Your gnomes are so cute sitting all in a row. Really like the different colorful paper you used. Great gifts!
That was supposed to be a happy face, not question marks in my previous comment. Can’t go back to fix
I’ll fix it – WordPress sites don’t recognize emojis, so we have to use the old-fashioned way of doing it. Next time, to make a happy face type a colon and an end-quote. It will look like this: 🙂
Thank you so much for the inspiration. 🙂
What a clever idea. Personalizing them is really special. I love their personalities. Thanks.
Thanks so much Rex!
I think about these every day because of the clever idea and execution. I keep wondering what little things I could make like that. For example, a nephew and niece were visiting my neighbor, and it would have been fun to give them a little something. I’m still thinking about it, but what a kind thing. ;>)
Your gnomes are so unique and I’m sure each and every one of your family members appreciate receiving their own special gift! Very nice!
Thank you Connie!
Danielle, I love what you did with your gnomes, both the way you finished them with the colorful paper, and the idea of personalizing each one for your family members. Thanks so much for sharing them with us – you’ve given us some great ideas for next Christmas. 🙂
