I have the sweetest and easiest handmade ornament to share with you today. I knew I did a good job when my almost-5-year-old said “Gasp! I love the mittens you made, mommy!” Such a cheerleader she is for her mom.
Sooooo cute, right?
Don’t worry! It’s no-sew!
Here’s what you’ll need to make your own:
Polyester fiberfill (or a couple of cotton balls)
White craft paint
Hot glue gun and sticks
Mitten template (I drew mine on cardstock)
Vanishing pen (optional)
Trace 4 mittens onto your burlap and cut them out. (2 pieces per mitten)
Fill with cotton/fiberfill and glue around the edges of your mittens with your glue gun.
Cut 2 pieces of twine about 4-5 inches long each. Glue one end of twine to the top corner of one mitten and do the same thing with the other piece of twine and mitten.
Cut two, small, felt rectangles and glue to the tops of the mittens..being sure to fold the felt over.
Add polka dots with your white craft paint (and the back end of a paint brush).
Tie the ends of the twine into a bow.
Hang your mittens on your tree or give them as a gift!
Thanks for stopping by today, friends!
