Ever heard of Valentine’s Day gnomes? I just learned how to make a Valentine’s Day gnome, and I am going to have an entire family of these adorable gnomes come Valentine’s Day. These gnomes are so much fun to make, easy to do and they all turn out differently but super cute. I got started by gathering my materials together:

These gnomes are so stinking cute and great fun for the kids! My children and I get very bored over the holidays and things can easily go haywire at a moment’s notice, so to keep everyone on track, I keep boxes of projects that I can pull out and put in the middle of the table and seat them quietly all round to focus their attention on their own creative spirit. I keep a few boxes of different fabrics for projects on hand and one of my favorites is the DIY Valentine’s Day Gnome. This is such a cute, fun project, everyone from old to young love it.
