Chalk Couture has had a couple of different gnome transfers, but this one is my favorite!
Chalk Couture Gnomes Supplies List
This Gnome Transfer from Chalk Couture is the cutest! The transfer comes with 3 different styles or designs and remember that each can be used multiple times if you clean them correctly.
- Gnome Transfer
- 6×18 box frame
To make it easy, I’ve put together the above items in a Farmhouse Gnome Kit, so you can get all you need with one click!
If you prefer a fancier option, This Odette Gnome Kit uses the 6×18 Odette board, so you could reuse this surface if needed.
Of course, if you need more than one gnome, then this Sylvie board with the gnomes will make the perfect kit!
How to Create a Gnome in one Color
This is really the easiest way to create a cute gnome. Pick your surface and your gnome design. Fuzz your transfer and place it on your surface. Then using one color of paste, smooth it over the transfer and peel. Isn’t it just so cute?!
This project was created on a wooden door tag.
How to Create a Watercolor Chalk Couture Gnomes
The simplest way to describe this multicolor gnome is to just show you how to create your own!
So, as you can see, you will create the entire design using a light color paste, like dune. Let this dry and then using a color of your choice (In the video they used orange peel), add some water to the paste to make it thinner and paint the areas you like.
Once that is dry, reapply the transfer lining up to match the previous design and apply the paste in black over the top.
Have fun with this technique and use several different colors. The sky is the limit on how many different gnome designs you can create.
Chalk Couture Gnomes Project Ideas
Since this transfer has 3 different gnomes on it, there are endless options to create the perfect gnome for every season & holiday! Just change up your paste colors, add a few seasonal additions and you’re good to go!
Another fun idea is to add embellishments to the gnome. This one added a wood bead for the nose and a pom-pom to the hat.
I’ll be adding more gnome ideas and projects to this post, so be sure to check back often for more inspiration!
