Don't get us wrong, garden gnomes can be great if you have one, or maybe two living in your yard. However, when they find a particularly comfy garden it's in their nature to invite their friends to join them, and gnome populations can quickly get out of hand; gnome migration can turn your garden from tastefully playful to overwhelmingly cute overnight. This is when it's time to invest in a Gnome-be-gone. This lively, chompy creature has a penchant for tossing gnomes and, unlike his painted ceramic prey, is welded together by hand from raw metal. Snowfall hardly slows his chase - he takes to skis to pursue gnomes in even the harshest conditions. Handmade by designer Fred Conlon in Utah.
