Last month, we asked you to create a Christmas-themed gnome for our Garden Gnome Christmas Tree Topper Contest.  After receiving many amazing entries, our Contest Crew has chosen the winner of this contest, along with an additional entry deserving of an honorable mention.  Here now is the winner of the contest:

First Place: fw00per

In honor of Fred, there is really only one way to go with a garden gnome topper, what with dungbombs and stealing Hogwarts toilet seats as some of the highlights of his career.  So here it is - an angel gnome with a plunger scepter, toilet seat halo and toilet paper wings, all charmed with a golden heavenly sparkle.
Honorable Mention: Dulcina Vale
This entry is a model of a gnome/mermaid, made from wire and papier mache and painted.
Many congratulations to all!  The first place winner of this contest will be receiving a custom made wand from Wizard Wood Wands as a grand prize.

As a reminder, the Story-That-Answers-A-Question Contest is still open for submissions.  To find out more about this contest, and how to submit your entry, click here.

damn I thought we had to use a 3d modeller. I wouldn’t have bet them anyway. They’re AMAZING.

Very creative- nice job, winners. I wonder if those were their permanent tree toppers this past holiday season. : )

Actually, he’s chocolate brown, but it shows up darker in the photograph. What would it matter, though?
