Here’s one gnome Christmas tree that is super cute –
Now, one thing I noticed that is different in the gnome tree above and the picture I shared on Pinterest is…
This last little gnome was NOT made with fresh “live” pine branches – instead, it was made with a small artificial Christmas tree with lights like this one.
Personally, I think that is BRILLIANT – by making my little gnomes for my front porch with fake trees, I can use them year after year.
But all that said – I LOVE fresh pine tree branches – especially during the Holidays.
So, let’s watch how to make fresh evergreen Christmas gnomes.
(hint: they use a tomato cage like this to shape the gnome and hold the pine branches in place – genius!)

I love these 2 Christmas garden gnomes! Making one big and one smaller is a great idea!
These 2 outdoor Christmas gnomes on their porch are NOT made with fresh pine limbs – instead, they used little fake Christmas trees – great idea, right?
I love how they have the gnomes set up on logs with wrapped presents and the Merry Christmas sign – such a nice touch.
I really like how this Christmas pine gnome turned out – nice and FULL.
Using a Potted Evergreen Bush
Another option is to head to Home Depot, Lowes or any store that sells POTTED evergreen bushes and make your outdoor Christmas gnomes that look like this:

I think I might do something with buffalo check for the hat – not sure, but I think it’ll look really cute.
Have you seen these HUGE outdoor gnome trees?
At first glance, if you know your outdoor greenery, is to think those big tall bushes are Italian Cypress… but they’re not.
They are arborvitae – and fun fact – they can grow as much as 3 FEET every YEAR!
So, if you want really, REALLY big and TALL gnome bushes in your front yard, that’s the type of shrub you’ll want to plant =)
Now, if you don’t want to make a gnome tree – why not get a gnome to stand NEXT to your Christmas tree?
Look how cute!
