Hello SaltTree readers! I’m Kirstin from Hello Kirsti blogging from Nashville, Tennessee. I love to craft, just bought my first house and I’m also recently engaged, so I’m excited about the crafty opportunities these two big things will bring!  Many thanks to Amber for having me and for getting us all in the Christmas crafty spirit!

Today I’m going to show you how to make a holiday mitten, this easy craft is great for adults and kids alike and each one is unique!

  • Fleece or Felt
  • Embroidery Thread
  • Needle
  • Marking Pen or chalk
  • Assorted decorations (Buttons, Ribbons, Christmas lights)
Layout your material and have it folded in half so it is doubled up.
With your fingers together but your  thumb out trace around your hand with the chalk.Christmas-mitten-xmas
Cut both layers along the line.Christmas-mitten-xmas-003
With wrong sides together blanket stitch around the edges, except for the top. (Don’t know how to blanket stitch, here’s a good how to).Christmas-mitten-xmas-009
Blanket stitch each of the top edges (but not together)
I added several buttons and then strung miniature Christmas lights between them around the buttons. (I found the lights in the dollhouse section of Hobby Lobby)Christmas-mitten-xmas-017
Add a ribbon or in my case lights to the top corner of the mitten for hanging.
There are so many different ways you can take these with fabrics and embellishing, it would be so fun to have a family of them hung up in a row!

Happy Holidays!!
