{ No Sew Wool Felt Mittens }




To make these felt mitten ornaments you will need:

- Scissors

- Hole punch

- Fade Away or Dissapearing Fabric Pen ( I just used a regular ink pen)

- Small piece of wool felt in color of choice

- Embelishments of choice

- Ribbon/embroidery floss/bakers twine, etc to string them with



Instructions:




(1.Trace your template onto a piece of cardboard.




(2. With your cardboard template trace out your wool mitten.



(3. Cut out mitten.



(4. Embellish with: Felt Stickers ( I found these Martha Stewart felt stickers at Walmart ) or rick rack hot glued or sewn along the wrist, or felt words from Creative Cafe centered and either hot-glued or sewn onto the mitten, buttons, etc.



(5. Punch hole on either the top or bottom of the mitten, which ever you prefer.



(6. String with ribbon, embroidery floss, bakers twine, etc.




Wha-la! Promise this is worlds fastest and easiest little ornament/something cute to tie on top of a present. Ever.

i used the same idea (minus the hole punch and ribbon) to make mitten clips (via marthastewart.com). i'm using them to clip bags of holiday treats closed.
