Lil Gnome Door

I wanted to try making a gnome door like ms debbie’s, so here it is. I used cedar, oak branches, and moss. Hand carved the door details. Propane torched it to give a lived in look, used an axel peg for the door knob. Epoxied the thing together, took a night time shot. (It took more time trying to get the pics to upload on this page than to build it.)

this is great!
the “torch” effect is excellent.
LOVE the “trees” – great selection and placement
and the photography: A+. The night time shot was well worth the effort.

I might just have to start making some again.
