Headless Garden Gnome
The headless garden gnome - wrong on so may levels - has to be my favorite of the Halloween styled garden gnomes. The red hat on the headless gnome and the bloody saw are enough to send a shiver down my spine.
Give Your Garden Friend a Halloween Inspired Makeover
If you are looking to create your own gnome with a Halloween theme you can repurpose that cute gnome sitting in your garden. I found an article on ehow.com entitled How to Paint Gnomes that will give you a few pointers on how to give your lawn ornament a freaky fabulous new look (though the article isn't necessarily concerned with turning your friend into a fiend). The advice will help you on how to get a nice finish for your remade ornament. For complete illustrated instructions on how to paint a zombie gnome check out Zombie Garden Gnome Mod by The Papier Boy which features 9 step instructions.
For those ready to let their creativity flow try painting some blood dripping down from the mouth or add some blood shot eyes to get your gnome ready for fright night but be sure to you outdoor ceramic paint and slap on a layer of outdoor varnish to seal in the paint. The last think you would want is for the elements to damage your horrifying piece of Halloween art.
