All About Mittens

Mitten On a String

These hand-crafted mittens make heartfelt gifts or decorations. It is an easy craft to complete with children, using only buttons, ribbon and felt. Use this simple activity to teach children the idea of sharing with others. Rather than having children keep their mittens, let each child give their mitten to a person of their choice. Christmas is a time of giving so let's use this time to instill the concept of what is most important upon our children. 


This adorable stocking doubles as a unique treat bag.


 Hosting and attending Christmas parties is one of the joys of the season. Cakes are made, eggnog is set out and there are a myriad of cookies waiting to be devoured. If you are looking for something uniquely Christmasy, these fondant mittens make excellent toppers for any cupcake. Try using green or silver mittens on top of red cupcakes. They are sure to be a hit with party guests.
