- "Good afternoon, class. Our lesson today is a rather whimsical one. We'll be using Transfiguration to turn ordinary garden gnomes into the more fanciful version imagined by Muggles. Watch your fingers, please. Gnomes have a fondness for biting. A little magic will make our gnomes worthy of a Muggle garden."
- —Minerva McGonagall explaining the spell to her students[src]
Gnomes to Lawn Gnomes (incantation unknown) was a transforming spell that was used to turn Gnomes (the magical beasts inhabiting wizarding gardens) into lawn gnomes (the inanimate statues in the Muggle world that resembled a small Father Christmas).
During the 1989–1990 school year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, Professor Minerva McGonagall taught her sixth-years how to perform this particular transforming spell in Transfiguration class.
