Creators, we're sure you've seen them. They're popping up everywhere here in the Studio! Just when we think we've seen them all, another one appears. It's like we're playing a never-ending game....a Game of Gnomes, to be exact. 

Studio Member, Colors, has blown us away with her gnome making talents, and she's been so kind to share not only her creations with us but also tips and tricks on her YouTube channel as to how she goes about making them. And you have all risen to the occasion and begun sharing your own gnomes, so it seems like the perfect time to announce our next community challenge: Game of Gnomes!

Check out the tips and trick Colors has on her YouTube channel - including this easy 'no-sew' option below!

Challenge Rules

  • Make your very own gnome from scratch and creatively incorporate at least one (1) Rust-Oleum product in the making of your gnome.
  • Upload photos (or even videos!) of your final product.
  • Provide a bit of a story or background on your gnome.
  • Gnomes must be created between March 3, 2020, and March 26, 2020.
  • Complete the submission form before noon on March 26, 2020.
  • Multiple submissions per person are encouraged! Let the creativity flow! 
  • This Challenge operates under the overarching terms and conditions that apply to all Creator's Studio Challenges.


Winners of each Challenge category will receive prize packs valued at over $50, filled to the brim with Rust-Oleum products! Curious what the categories are?

  • Expert's Pick: Cutest Gnome
  • Expert's Pick: Most Unique Gnome

Once all of the submissions are collected, we'll invite Creator's Studio members to vote for their favorite gnome. Our in-house team of Experts will then review entries to crown the final winners of our Game of Gnomes!
