joulu tonttu

This Scandinavian style tonttu is a needle felted elf-like Christmas tree decoration. The tonttu like to wear colourful tall hats. The tonttu is very shy and doesn’t like it when people look him in the eye. He wears his hat over his eyes and peeks out when you are not watching.

A Tonttu (Finland) Tomte (Sweden) or Nisse (Norway) is a traditional creature from Scandinavian folklore typically associated with the winter solstice and the Christmas season. According to tradition, the tonttu live in the forest. Some tomtes secretly live in houses and act as a guardian to the household. If treated well, they protect children and animals from evil and misfortune. The Christmas tonttu brings gifts to children from Santa. Be sure to leave him a bowl of porridge on Christmas eve.

Red and coloured mushrooms are commonly found in the pine forests of Finland and Scandinavia. According to Scandinavian folklore the tonttu or elves can be found peeking out from behind mushrooms.

If you are lucky enough to own a Tonttu (Finland) Tomte (Sweden) or Nisse (Norway) of your very own, make him feel welcome by giving him a mushroom to hide behind.
