Simple Valentines Gnome Plus Tiered Tray Wood Sign DIY

I love creating gnomes for every season and occasion. Today I decided to create a Valentine's Gnome for my Valentine's tiered tray.

This little gnome turned out so stinking cute and he was so easy to make.

Items I used for the gnome:

  • Base - I used a can of chili.
  • Scarf
  • Mop Head
  • Foam Ball
  • Children's Socks
  • Felt Heart Sticker


To create this adorable gnome follow the steps below.

Step 1.

  • I used a tin can and slide 2 kid's socks onto it.


Step 2.

  • Cut a piece of cardstock down to fit halfway around the gnome base.
  • Cut string and glue to cardstock.
  • Glue the second layer of string on top of the first for a fuller-looking beard.


Step 3.

  • Glue the beard to the base of the gnome.


Step 4.

  • Create a gnome hat. I used a scarf, cut it in half, and glued it to the top of the base.


Step 5.

  • Glue a nose onto the gnome.



Items I used for the tiered tray sign:

  • Wood Coaster
  • Antiquing Wax
  • Acrylic Paint
  • Black HTV
  • Red HTV
  • Design Bundles Cut File


Step 1.

  • Cover the entire coaster with antiquing wax and remove excess using a paper towel.


Step 2.

  • Paint the entire coaster with white paint.
  • I used acrylic paint but you can use chalk paint.


Step 3.

  • After the paint has dried sand the coaster for a rustic, worn look.


Step 4.

  • I used HTV for this sign.
  • After arranging everything on the coaster I used my iron to set the HTV.
  • You can use regular vinyl, I just wanted to try something different with this sign and I really liked the red glitter HTV. 



I love how my Valentine's Day decor is starting to all come together.
