Crafts can be so fun for kids if they are simple and easy. Some kids have much longer of an attention span than others so we always like to start simple. Christmas Ornaments are one of the best crafts because both parents and kids will want to keep them. Especially if you add the child’s name and the date on the back… Who hasn’t decorated their Christmas Tree with ornaments from the past?!? These Mitten Ornaments will not only be simple for kids, they are super cute and will look amazing on the tree year after year!
Let’s Get Started…
Start by wrapping Red Baker’s Cotton around the top of Large Red Mitten Shapes (pre-cut and sold in 10 packs). Make sure to leave a short piece at the end BEFORE you begin wrapping… This little extra piece will tied off with the back piece to create the loop for hanging. Kids can wrap these as much as they want and in different places as well. If making these for a group craft, we recommend cutting the Red/White Baker’s Cotton into 24″ pieces so kids can each have their own piece.
Here is another example of a way to wrap Red/White Baker’s Cotton on the mitten.
Once the Red/White Baker’s Cotton is tied off into a loop, attach White Snowflake Stickers by simply peeling and sticking to the Mittens! Kids can choose 1-3 Snowflake Stickers per mitten.
Make sure to personalize these Mitten Ornaments with the child’s name and the year it was made. This can be done on the back or written small on the front with a Fine Tip Sharpie Marker. FYI: Any permanent marker will work on craft foam.
Here’s is one other idea: Add a small piece of White Pom Pom Ribbon across the mitten ornament with 2 Glue Lines. Glue Lines are 1″ and attach very well to both the ribbon and craft foam.
Then attach a Snowflake Sticker to the center of the ribbon.
These Red Mitten Ornaments are lightweight, easy to hang, easy to store, and are super cute!
