Valentines Wood Block Gnomes
Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, we love making gnomes. And having an upcoming holiday is a fantastic excuse to make more tomten for myself or for gifts. Seriously, I’ll take any excuse. So, when I saw some wood just LAYING there in the workshop floor, well, I had just the excuse to get crafty – Valentines!
With a couple of cuts and some hot glue gun action, I had a fun and easy Valentine wood block gnome craft that I seriously love. If you’re ready to make a wood gnome set for Valentines, let’s get started.

Tips to Make Easy Wooden Gnomes
- I used a 2×4 to make this wood block for the gnomes. But you could certainly use a thinner wood. I simply selected the thicker wood to ensure I’d have a solid base that wouldn’t fall over.
- To make the noses, you could use wood beads. I didn’t have the right size on hand, so I just used some polymer clay to make a round bead. But wood beads like these would look perfect.
- If you decide to cut the wood yourself for these DIY Valentines gnomes, you should measure from the center of the wood. Otherwise the whole gnome will look off-center and wonky.
- Decorating with Valentine Scandinavian gnomes is really easy. Just place your wood block Valentines gnomes on your mantle, in a tiered tray or on a bookshelf with your other Valentines decorations. They add a touch of whimsy you’re really going to love.
