Memory Making Day!
Three Little Kittens Mittens
Garland & Party Favors!
(Hi Peeps! I’m making my Thanksgiving grocery list today! Hope your Monday is going good! It’s an exciting week and I know you’ll be busy but I wanted to post this idea just in case you have your little ones home or maybe bookmark it for later! It’s not only good for kiddos, it’s also a cute, cheap party favor if you’re in the party planning mode! Love to you all and I’m praying that you’ll be tickled by a bunch of joy butterflies this week!)
For adults, these little mittens have magnets on the back, they are great party favors for a luncheon in
December or a Bible study or even a cookie exchange! Hang them on the inside of your front door or on
your coat closet door so your guests wont forget!
It’s a good project for your kids to do to decorate their rooms. Just leave off the magnets! Or if your kids
are in school, you could organize this project in early December for your child’s classroom. The teacher
would love the mitten garland to decorate the room! You could also use these for Advent writing
scriptures and activities on the back of each mitten.
You’ll need these supplies…
The Holiday paper is everywhere right now. You may want to buy just a few sheets if you will only be making only one garland.
The twine and clothes pins are left over from another craft, Advent Garland,
I wanted to make sure you had something to do with anything extra
I found this bag of goodies at Michael’s for under $5.00.
It’s full of red and green and fun shaped buttons.
You could also cut fun shapes out of the red & green paper and decorate the mittens that way.
If you want to you can paint the front of the clothes pins
Using a pattern cut mittens from different fun paper!
(I traced my mitten from an ornament, you could use a cookie cutter or find patterns online.)
The mittens work well If they are about 5 1/2 inches long~
Now have fun! Use your imagination to decorate!
I cut small pieces in coordinating paper to glue to the tops of the mittens.
And made tiny bows from the twine. Of course you could use ribbon or yarn!
The buttons and bows stay on with medium size dots of Elmer’s glue. It dries clear so no worries!
Now wrap a little piece of tape around the end of the twine, cut tape & twine to an angle.
Use the taped end like a needle to thread through the clothes pins!
It helps to make knots after each clothes pin. They need to be about 4″ apart to leave room for the mittens
to hang nicely!
If you want to make mitten magnets, now’s the time to cut a piece of magnet from the roll and stick it to
After the glue dries, hang your mittens with care!
From a garland to your frig. they’re soooo cute and really fun and easy to make! ?
Wouldn’t your guests love to take a set of mittens home to hang on the frig. ?
