A terrible plague has befallen the once gentle inhabitants of the garden and now the gnomes are hungry for braaaaiinnnssss! The walking dead are so cute when they’re 4 inches tall and make the perfect gift for the Rick Grimes fanatic in your life. There are about a dozen different Zombie Gnomes to choose from, ranging from $6 for the car ornament (pictured) to $55 for a set of 3 mauling the innards of a flamingo. All of the gorey little monsters are hand cast and hand painted. Having trouble keeping the little ones in check? Scare the shit out of them with Rudolph the Rude, the Zombie Gnome Elf ornament ($21). SO much more intimidating than that lame Elf on a Shelf and a portion of proceeds from this particular undead figurine will be donated to Red Cross Hurricane Sandy relief. Prices vary – available at Chris & Jane’s Place on Etsy.
