Glue together these cute farmhouse mitten ornaments that look vintage. A no-sew craft, it's easy to make brand new jingle bells look rustic with our easy craft hack!

Materials

  • 1/4 yard fabric
  • Free Mitten Pattern
  • Microfiber cloth (or material similar to a fuzzy fur; I used a car cleaning cloth)
  • Twine
  • Small bells
  • Paint brush
  • Brown chalk paint (if no chalk paint, acrylic mixed with baking powder)
  • Polyfill
  • Hot glue gun and glue
  • Chalk or pen

Instructions

    1. Fold the fabric. Using chalk (or a pen), trace the mittern pattern onto the fabric. Cut out the mittens shapes. *Note, you do not need to place the pattern on the folded part. You just need two separate mitten cut outs. Cutting Mitten Out of Checkered Fabric
    2. Using a hot glue gun, glue along the edge of the mitten shape leaving the top open to stuff with polyfill (about 1/4 “seam” allowance). Hot Glueing Mitten Ornament Together
    3. Fill the mitten with a small amount of stuffing to help give it shape. Stuffing Mitten with Poly Fill
    4. Cut a small piece of twine for the loop of the ornament and hot glue it inside the mitten on one side. Hot glue the opening closed. Glueing Twine to Mitten Craft Ornament
    5. Using the edge of the micro fiber cloth, cut off approximately 5” x 1.5” piece of cloth for the “fur” of the mitten. Starting at the back, hot glue one side down wrapping it around the front and meeting back up. Hot Glueing Faux Fur to Mitten Ornament
    6. Cut twine and string rusty bells (see tip below) through the twine and around the mitten (below the cuff) to give it a rustic farmhouse look. Complete with a bow glued on. Tying Rustic Bells on to Ornament with Twine


    **NOTE: If you can’t find miniature rusty bells, you can use bells from the dollar tree and paint them with a chalky brown paint. If you can’t find chalk paint, you can add a bit of baking soda to some brown acrylic paint to give it a worn, matte appearance.

Notes

  • I used a car cleaning cloth for a fuzzy mitten cuff with a hemmed edge already. I just cut the cloth and had the rough seam glued against the mitten. Farmhouse Mittens Ornament Craft Supplies
