Bring some fun to your spooky crafting this year with this adorable Halloween Gnome Craft. They’re holding pumpkins, too, because what else would a Halloween gnome hold?
A great craft for little ones since it’s cute and so not scary, these gnomes can be made with any of your favorite Halloween colors. And we have a Free Printable Halloween Gnome Template so all you have to do is cut and customize!
How to Make a Paper Halloween Gnome
To make our Halloween Gnome Craft you will first need our gnome template.
The remainder of the supplies include cardstock in your choice of colors, scraps of craft foam, a glue stick, and scissors.
Halloween Gnome Craft Supplies Needed
- Halloween Gnome Template
- Cardstock – black, orange, cream, brown, grey, and your choice of body
- Craft foam
- Glue stick
Paper Gnome Craft Step by Step Instructions
Begin by printing the gnome template. Cut out the pieces.
Trace the pieces of the template on their respective colors of cardstock, then cut out.
Now, glue the strip for the hat on the hat cut-out and attach the hand cutouts on the sleeve cutouts. Also, attach the shoe cutouts on the bottom side of the body cutout.
Next, cut out a small piece of craft foam and attach it in the center of the circle nose cutout.
Glue the nose near the top side of the beard cutout.
Glue the hat in place at the top of the beard.
Then, glue the beard/hat/nose to the top of the body. Apply glue along the flat end of the sleeve pattern and attach it on a side of the body, with the hands positioned inside the body.
Adhere the other arm on the opposite side.
Finally, craft the pumpkin and slide it between the arms of the Halloween gnome. This would even make a really cute Halloween card to hand out to friends in a classroom!
