The Traveling Gnomes are Back!

by Sara Kojaku

It's our second annual TRAVELING GNOME CONTEST! Have you painted your gnome yet?

Last year we had so much fun seeing everyone's creativity! We started this contest because we thought it would be so fun to see your gnomes out in the world. We weren't sure how many of you were going to join us on this crazy Instagram adventure, but a lot of you did.  We had such a great time looking through your photos, we thought we would do it again this summer. Check out some of last year's winners and honorable mentions.

Whether your summer plans involve traveling near or far, grab your gnome and get out there. One of the coolest things about Painted Earth is that you can go as far as your imagination will take you. Some more highlights from last year: a couple of gnomes actually created their own Instagram accounts, one went to Niagra Falls, and another won big at Dave & Busters. Search it out on Instagram HERE and join in the fun! Post unlimited pictures, entering as many times as you want. Just make sure that you tag us (@paintedearthpottery) and use our contest hashtag (#paintedearthgnomes) by August 15, 2015. Winners will be announced by August 31, 2015, so stay tuned to see if you won our giant $70 gnome. Here are some more highlights from last summer:

So Where Will You & Your Gnome Roam This Summer?

*Please note: If you have a private IG account, we will not be able to see your photos, even if you tag us. We suggest that you make it public on August 15th for a few days while we round up the photos, and then make it private again.
