This adorable little Nissa Ornament was made entirely of paper quilling strips. This Scandinavian Nisse measures approximately 3.5 inches tall and has black rhinestone eyes. A metallic thread is attached to hang him perfectly from a Christmas tree or anywhere else.

According to Scandinavian folklore “Nisse” is the name for a small humanlike creature. He is not exactly an elf or a dwarf. The Nisse and his family dwells mainly in barns, stables and stalls, but he also inhabits lofts and attics –so long as they are not too tidy. The Nisse is kind and helpful. The Nisse was believed to take care of a farmer's home, animals, and children and protect them from misfortune, in particular at night, when the housefolk were asleep. It is very important to be on good terms with the Nisse, otherwise strange incidents can occur. It is wise to remember the Nisse during Christmas and to put a bowl of porridge for him and his family.

Each nisse gnome will be made to order so the final product may be slightly different than the one shown in the photograph.

For indoor use only.

This item will be shipped via Canada Post.
