About HomeSweetGnomeShop

Sales 2,142
On Etsy since 2018

There's Gnome Place Like Home.

Home Sweet Gnome is a small, Utah based business specializing in handcrafting whimsical gnomes for your home & offering DIY gnome making kits for the crafty folk! Every gnome is cut, sewn, and assembled by hand in our studio, making each and every one slightly different which adds to their uniqueness and little personalities.

We have put our own special flare on these little gnomes often referred to as a nisse or tomte in Danish, Norwegian, Swedish, and Scandinavian folklore. They are said to act as the secret guardian of a home or barn. When treated well, they protect the occupants from harm and misfortune and help with the home and farm chores. If treated badly however, the little gnomes may become mischievous playing tricks on the homes occupants like hiding things and tipping things over!

Home Sweet Gnomes are meant to be decor in your home, sitting quietly on a shelf. They are not made to withstand the daily love of a child and small parts may pose as a choking hazard. ♥

Frequently asked questions
Do you sell finished gnomes?

Yes! We drop finished gnomes randomly here on Etsy and on our website here ---> https://www.homesweetgnome.com/collections/gnome-drop

The best way to know when gnomes will be available is to sign up for emails on our website!

Do you offer digital patterns to make your gnomes?

You will find a section in our Etsy shop titled "Patterns & Tutorials". Here you can find all of the digital PDF patterns that we have available.

You can gain access to video tutorials, a wonderful gnome community, and more in our Facebook group Home Sweet Gnome VIP after you have placed your order.

I ordered a DIY gnome making kit or pattern, where can I find the PDF instructions?

When your kit arrives, you will find a sticker on each kit bag with instructions on how to access your PDF gnome making tutorial. If you have any questions or issues with your kit, please contact us via Etsy messages or email at info@homesweetgnome.com and include your order number in the subject line.

What are your gnomes made out of?

We make our gnomes out a variety of materials including craft felt, up-cycled (but NEW) socks, and other materials. Beards are made from faux furs and noses are made from wooden beads. The gnomes are stuffed with poly fill and rice at the bottom to help stabilize the gnomes for shelf sitting.

How big are the gnomes?

Our gnomes measure 8-14" tall and are 2.5"-3" wide at the base.

Are the gnomes okay for children?

The gnomes are meant to be shelf sitters. While they can withstand a gentle hug every now and then, noses and other small parts can pose a choking hazard and they are not designed to withstand the daily love of a child. The gnomes are meant to watch over the children or families similar to an Elf on the Shelf.

Can I order a custom gnome?

We are not currently accepting orders for custom gnomes.

Where do you buy your fur? How about socks?

As you can imagine, it has taken us a lot of time and research for us to source quality materials for our gnomes. We offer many of the supplies needed to make your gnomes here in our Etsy shop. You can find our favorite pre-cut beard supplier here on Etsy under the shop name MBFabric. Many of our socks/leg warmers from Amazon, Walmart, and other large retailers.

Do you still sell sew at home kits?

We have made the tough decision to focus only on no sew kits for the time being. We are not positive if we will be adding sew at home kits back to our DIY kit offerings, but if we do, we will be sure to send out a newsletter email update about it. You can sign up for our newsletter at the top of our website here: https://www.homesweetgnome.com/
