I love my selection of Valentine paper crafts for kids which can be used on their own or to make a cute greeting card.

Previously I have made animals with hearts like my Butterfly heart craft but this time I decided to make an adorable gnome clutching a heart. 

He is sending love to everyone who makes him! He is definitely one of my cute crafts for Valentine’s Day 2021

Completing this paper craft for kids is easy when you have step by step instructions above and the free printable template found at the bottom of this post.

All you need is some colored craft paper, glue and scissors! 

If you like the look of this little guy I have lots more ideas on my Valentine’s Day Crafts page

My Valentine Gnome craft for kids is such an easy paper craft in the run up to Valentine's Day!


  • 1. Colored craft papers
  • 2. Craft glue
  • 3. Pencil
  • 4. Scissors


Step 1:

Select different colored craft papers for the gnome craft. The template includes hat, heart shapes, hands, shoes, nose, and beard and body pattern. Trace them on the selected craft papers and cut them out nicely.

You can pick whatever colors you wish or perhaps ones you already have in your craft drawer.

Step 2:

Glue the shoe cutouts on the bottom side (round side) of the body pattern and glue the nose (oval shape) near the top side of the beard pattern.

Step 3:

Glue the beard pattern on the top side of the body pattern (straight side). Apply glue along the straight end of the hand cutouts and attached them on the side of the body pattern. Keep the rest of the hand free from glue.

Step 4:

Glue both hands on 2 sides of the body pattern. Trim the extra sides of the hand cutouts to align them with the body layout.

Step 5:

Collect the hat and heart cutouts.

Step 6:
Stick the heart paper cutouts on the hat pattern however you wish to. If you want you can cut out a third heart and attach it too.

Step 7:
Glue the hat on the top side of the beard, overlapping the nose slightly.

Step 8:
Cut another small heart cutout and slide it under the hands to complete the craft.

You can use him for a card or a picture for your wall. Attach a popsicle stick and turn him into a puppet.
