Red and White Felt Mitten Christmas Gift Toppers

Attach these handmade felt mittens to a Christmas gift to make someone's holiday extra special.

What You Need:

  • Child's mitten
  • Tracing paper
  • Red and white felt
  • Spray adhesive
  • Red and white yarn
  • Embroidery needle
  • 6-inch length of 5/16-inch-wide red-and-white check ribbon
  • Glue gun and hotmelt adhesive
  • Red and white buttons

How to Make It:

  1. Trace a child's mitten to make a pattern. Use the pattern to cut four mittens from red and white felt. Glue together the four mittens in a stack with spray adhesive, aligning all the edges.
  2. Blanket-stitch the curved edges of the mittens with contrasting yarn. For the hanging loop, fold the ribbon in half and hot-glue the cut ends to the back of the mitten.
  3. Cut a 13/4x14-inch cuff from felt. Fold the cuff in half lengthwise; spray with adhesive. Wrap the cuff around the mitten top, overlapping the short edges and hot-gluing in place. Hot-glue buttons to the mitten front.
