A Christmas gonk is one of the most fun Christmas wooden characters to make.

Usually featuring a hat, button nose and bushy beard, these charming, wooden, gnome like characters originate from Scandinavian and Nordic culture.

Christmas gonks can come in all shapes, colours and sizes, and are popular the world over. And it's easy to see why! These are easy to make and popular to sell at craft fairs or on online craft stores.
