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?

Prices vary – available at Chris & Jane’s Place on Etsy.
