Ever since I visited the North Pole in Finland, I have been obsessed with Gnomes. I brought some cute fun Scandinavian gnomes home and regret not bringing more. Just another excuse to go back and have a small commission of getting back more though!

History of Gnomes

You surely have seen these adorable little creatures in Scandinavian Christmas decorations collections. They typically wear red-knit pointy hats that get wider at the bottom of the cone and have long white beards. What’s special is that people usually associate gnomes with the winter solstice and the Christmas season.

These are mini gnomes that go by the names of towns in Sweden, Tonttu in Finland, Nisse in Norway, and Nisse in Denmark. I adore crafts with a Nordic flair, like these adorable Christmas gnomes. They would look fantastic with just about any holiday décor.

Types of DIY Gnomes

There are so many different types of gnomes that are not just limited to Holidays like these Cute Valentine’s Day Gnomes, Gnome Printables, sock gnomes, etc…

I found some cute gnomes for the holiday season like a wine topper gnome, a Scandinavian Tomte Christmas Elf Ornament, Swedish Christmas Gnomes, mini gnomes, girl gnomes, egg carton craft gnomes, and so many others! Check them out below.
