When last we left my gnome garden, the basics had been assembled but really needed more stuff. I took a break from it so that I could have a proper look through of my supplies and think about what I wanted to do with this.
First I found 3 white bottle brush trees I had in my stash and dyed them dark green with alcohol ink.I glued those behind the rock wall (which I'd built stone by stone). I also used a little basket into which I glued some fruit-shaped beads I found in my bead boxes. That's a marble gazing ball, on top of a push pin.
A few years back one of my friends sent me some small clay pots. I was able to easily carve out an opening in one of them to make a chiminea. It's hard to see, but I also used a lamppost behind the cabin. It doesn't light up though. Just one from my stash.
But it still wasn't done. Just a few more final touches.
I added a pile of wood next to the pine cone tree, and I made wind chimes from bugle beads and put that in the back right corner.
I also found a little beagle that I'd gotten in a gumball machine so I added him too.
Then I hung white, green and purple grape beads from the ivy.
Now it's done.
