Gnome Sweet Gnome Valentine Kisses

I just thought these were too cute to not make. Little Gnome kisses! The idea came from my favorite kid friendly go to craft site, Family Fun.  I just love that site (but I’ve said that a thousand times.)

They were easy to make (minus the burns from my darn glue gun.)  All you need is felt (any color), Hershey Kisses and googley eyes.

Cut the felt into circles and then cut into 4 equal parts.  Make the circles as big as you’d like but not so big they completely cover the Kiss =o)

I tried to roll the felt and make a cone.  Ouch.  That was extremely unsuccessful.  Perhaps because the only felt I had was super thick.  I’m going to blam it on that =o)  So instead I glued it like this:

Then glue the hat on and glue on eyes.  That simple!  (My daughter LOVED them!)

I’m going to put them in co-workers mailboxes as a friendly hello.  The kids will probably take some to school for their teachers as well.  Because who wouldn’t love a gnome?

What great ideas are you doing for Valentine’s Day?  Do you make Valentine cards for your kids to give out or do you buy them?

I’m linking to the great parties on my sidebar.

I would love it if you would show this at Your Cozy Home Party. My viewers love getting new ideas to do with their children or grands. Please come if you can! ———– Shannon

  10. These are so cute! I showed my daughter and she wants to make them for her friends. I used to make cute things for Valentine’s Day like you do for my kids to bring to school, but now that they are teens they have not wanted me to do anything like that for a while. So I was happy when my daughter said she would like to make these:) I miss doing crafty things like this.
