Make an Easy Paper Gnome for Valentine’s Day
To make our Folded Paper Valentine’s Day Gnome Craft you will need our gnome beard template, construction paper in white and other assorted colors, a heart paper punch, scissors, and a glue stick.
Valentine’s Day Gnome Craft Supplies Needed
- Gnome Beard Template
- Construction paper – white, assorted colors
- Heart paper punch
- 1.5” circle paper punch
- Glue stick
Folded Paper Gnome Craft Step by Step Directions
Begin with a full sheet of construction paper, placed vertically. A lightweight cardstock would work fine, as well.
Bring one corner of the paper over, forming a triangle.
Then, fold the point of the triangle down.
Now, use the template to cut a beard out of white paper. Glue in place under the fold.
Next, either use a 1.5″ circle paper punch or the circle in the template form a nose out of your chosen color paper. Glue that in place over the fold. If you were making this into a card, make sure the nose is only glued to the white beard paper.
Finally, punch out a bunch of hearts and glue randomly over the gnome’s folded paper hat.
Super cute, right? A perfect little craft for Valentine’s Day.
