23 Creepy Garden Gnomes for Halloween 2021

Remember The Shining’s “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy?” Today, it’s all about play and getting your garden ready for this year’s Halloween with some creepy garden gnomes!

If you love The Shining as much as I do, you can even earn some cash watching it, together with 12 other horror movies like Misery, It, The Blair Witch Project, and Paranormal Activity.

The catch is that you have to sit through all 13 movies with your survival kit (blanket, popcorn, candy, and Stephen King paraphernalia) and wear a Fitbit to track your heart rate. Once you’ve watched all 13 and logged your report, they’ll pay you $1300.


Apparently, “it wants to investigate whether there is a correlation between a horror movie’s budget and how “dread-inducing” it is.”

Now, today, whilst we’re feasting our eyes upon these creepy garden gnomes, let’s spare a thought for our friends in the UK who are currently experiencing a garden gnome shortage.

Due to a blockage in the Suez Canal, their garden centers “haven’t seen a gnome in six months, unfortunately.” Oh no!

Creepy Garden Gnomes for a Terrifically Terrifying Halloween

Creepy garden gnomes are a must for this year’s Halloween display!

1. Ed’s Undead Baby, Ed’s Undead

evil garden gnome undead ed
Undead Ed likes brains and he’s behind you! In the garden!

Creepy garden gnome Undead Ed stands 11 inches tall and is made from durable polyresin. He’s perfectly happy inside the house (don’t let him in!) and in the yard because he’s weather and sun-resistant.

Did he just move??

2. Creepy Jason Voorhees Gnome

Did you know Jason didn’t wear his mask in the first two movies?

There’s actually a darned creepy gnome below with a bag over his head. Turns out that this is Jason before he went hockey-mask!

In the first Jason film, the villain was his mom, Pamela Voorhees. Then, in the second movie where he avenges her death, he looks like a farmer with a bag over this head.

3. Loose Eye Zombie Gnome

An eye for an eye and a, uhm, rotten tooth for a tooth? This is not a gnome you want to cross!

4. Eatmore Guts Zombie Gnome

A zombie gnome always wants to eat more guts, and what better place to do so than in your garden?

5. Grim Reaper

We don’t beat the reaper by living longer, but by living well, and living fully – for the reaper will come for all of us.

The question is: “What do we do between the time we’re born and the time he shows up?”

Randy Pausch

What do we do?

Get more creepy garden gnomes!

6. Zombie Halloween Garden Gnome

“My zombie apocalypse plan is simple but effective. I fully intend to die in the very first wave.” Graham Parke’s strategy for the impending garden gnome – sorry – zombie apocalypse.

8. Black Metal Lawn Gnome

black metal lawn gnome

This creepy little gnome is made from metal which is different!

He may be the gnome from the 2015 film “Gnome Alone” which was, admittedly, a flop. It’s about a girl who receives enchanted protection from a super creepy gnome, who proceeds to annihilate her enemies in a horrific fashion!

9. Creepy Grim Reaper

This little grim reaper is made of resin and a scary addition to your Halloween display. He stands 5″ tall and 6″ wide so make sure you give him a position at the front somewhere!

10. Scream

scream creepy garden gnome

The movie Scream was released in 1996 – can you believe it’s that long ago? It sparked absolute terror in me when I watched it as a 13-year old.

Do you like scary movies?

11. Zombie in Your Garden

zombie creepy garden gnome halloween with light

This creepy garden gnome is best suited to a position in plant containers due to its size of 19×9.5x15cm, which is only about 7.5″ tall and 6″ wide.

He’d look pretty awesome there though, especially with his light on so no one can miss his creepy face!

12. Cement Gnome With Braids

cement zombie gnome garden

This is one of the more expensive creepy garden gnomes in my list but it’s also one of the most durable because it’s made from concrete, not resin.

It weighs 18 pounds and stands 16” tall and 6” wide. She (?) reminds me of the Day of the Dead and you could probably paint her of you like that style!

13. Gutsy the Gruesome

Amazon product

Little Gutsy is a bargain! At just under $8 excluding shipping, he’s definitely one of the cheaper gnomes on this list.

The same listing also offers a zombie squirrel and some other creepy zombie gnomes.

14. Black Cat Gnomes

black cat halloween garden gnomes

These little cat gnomes are probably more cute than creepy but if you’re superstitious, a black cat can frighten!

Did you know that black cats are the least likely to get adopted from shelters in the USA? Toronto is on board too, holding a Black Friday event in 2014 where people could adopt black cats for free.

To this day, you may find shelters offering free black cat adoptions on Black Friday to help black cats get adopted!

There’s something about missing limbs…

This creepy garden gnome shows that to the fullest, sporting one arm and lots of gory detail. He stands 11.75″ tall and is made from resin that’s suitable for outdoor use.

17. Oh Snap, Steve

Still have nightmares about the Texas Chainsaw Massacre or Freddy? These little gnomes will bring those “wonderful” memories right back!

Remember how I talked about Jason starting out with a bag over his head instead of a hockey mask? I imagine he might have looked like this little guy!

This same listing also features a clown, Freddy, Frankenstein, a ghost or the guy from Scream, and the guy from the Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Or Motel Hell. Or Slashers. Or any other movie where some crazy person wields a chainsaw with ill intent.

19. Stabby the Evil Gnome

Stabby looks nice but he’s not! He pretends to give you a flower whilst holding a gigantic knife behind his back.

One of the cooler creepy garden gnomes I found!

I identify with these guys. Aren’t they just like us homesteaders? Momma’s got the bubba, we’re off to chop some wood and make a self-sufficient life for ourselves…

We’re even immortal so we can keep pioneering forever!

Make sure you check the size of all the creepy garden gnomes before you buy – many of these are smaller than you might think!

Henry is so cool!

Mr Crawlins doesn’t let a little thing like death stop him – look at him go! He’s 11″ long and 4″ tall and made from durable, weather-resistant polyresin.

Henry pays homage to the spirit of Henry Rollins in He Never Died and the hot rod art of Ed “Big Daddy” Roth.
