Elf, Dwarf, Smurf, Gnome Pictures to Color

Gnomes coloring pages for everyone! If you've seen the Pixar animated 3D film, Gnomeo and Juliet, or the popular Smurfs film, you're probably a fan of this "little folks" art. '

I've been saving links to my favorite dwarf and gnome coloring pages and clip art for a few years, so now seems the time to share my favorite printables.

All the links to gnome printables and Smurf coloring pages are free for personal use - you can print them to color in or you can use the line art to design crafts for your family and friends. Or for yourself.

I love gnome art of all types. I've collected pictures, books and statues of gnomes for years. I use my art prints and digital clip art pictures as inspiration when I draw my own full color illustrations, line drawings and greeting cards. When I spot a little gnome in a garden setting I make sure I catch a photograph before the fellow escapes.

Mushrooms Coloring Page - Keep Out of the Rain

You almost always find mushrooms where gnomes and fairies hang out in the woodlands. They're handy for keeping the wee folk dry during a spring or summer rain shower.

My Daughter and I Love Gnomes - Nana got me hooked on gnomes as a toddler; I passed on the love of garden protectors to my daughter when she was 3

How did this all begin? Well, my grandmother was German and when I was a toddler she spent many nights reading to me from a German storybook filled with darling pictures of fairytale characters. Years later, when I visited my parents who were living in Germany in the late 1970s I fell in love with garden gnomes. All the shops in Mannheim and Frankfurt were selling them, so I bought one for my mother as a Mother's Day gift.

The following Christmas I bought the beautifully illustrated (now a hip boomer classic) book as a gift, and from that point on I just started collecting pictures and figurines.

The latest character dwarf craze is an old one - Smurfs! My daughter who loves the little g people has a HUGE collection of Smurf figures that she's letting her toddler play with all these years later. Enjoy some blue dwarf arts and crafts with these Smurf coloring books.


Smurfs - Blue Buddies

The same child of mine who loved gnomes also had (has) a passion for little blue Smurfs.

She's passed that love of the little blue gnome beings onto her daughter ... so we're now officially a 5-generation gnome-loving family.

We Love Garden Gnomes

I've loved gnome art and garden statues since I visited Germany in 1978. Hubby and I went to see the Gnomeo and Juliet animated film for Valentine's Day 2011 ... it was so much fun, and the music is terrific!

My younger daughter shares my affection for gnomes. When she was only 3 years old, she developed a passion for all things gnomey and elven. She started (and still owns today, 30-plus years later) a huge collection of Smurfs and drwarvish toys, artwork and decorations. She's got bolts of fabric with cute little gnome prints; I scanned swatches of the fabrics to make custom lettering for her baby shower invitations.

In addition to her collectibles, she owns a nice assortment of small figurines who watch over her garden (like the guardian in the photo above) - gnomes who tend herbs in flower pots, larger garden gnomes who keep the outdoor play areas safe and happy plus a big collection of gnome holiday ornaments to decorate the family Christmas tree.

    Very cute, I love Gnomes, Pixies etc, even the Smurfs! I have always wondered if they really did exist in one form or another eons ago. Nicely done, blessed.
