this tutorial from Family Fun, for DIY valentines based on a gnome, I was instantly in love! So cute! My gnomes were adapted, however, for two reasons. First, gnomes have big feet - it's part of who they are! Second, it gives the valentine just a little more candy to give than just the one candy kiss, which made it more of a gift for the kids to give their friends.
So here's my quick tutorial for making these fun little characters with your kiddos! Trust me, by the time you get finished, you'll be so in love with them you'll be posing them around and taking pics of them in crazy places too! It's kind of irresistible!
|Choose felt colors for hats - we went with pink, red purple & blue|
|Cut 4 inch felt circles for hats - whatever colors tickle your fancy|
|Divide circles into quarters|
|Glue along one edge & roll around finger to create hat|
|Supplies needed for body - kisses & hearts|
|Supplies needed for face - googlie eyes & tiny pom poms|
