So after the Winter Tree was up I started working on some Winter Mittens to hang as decorations. I used craft store felt, some paint, yarn and some mini-clothes pins I already had. It took me a couple nights but only because I would work on it then go goof off and come back and work on it then goof off again.
I couldn't find a template online for the mittens so I just drew one myself on a piece of paper. Then I traced it onto the felt. There is no picture of me putting the paint on because Emma was climbing all over the table I was working on and all over me. So taking pictures took a low priority so that I could avoid paint all over the place. I played around with the paint on a scrap piece of felt before I actually put it on the mittens. It took me a few times before I decided on a final look. I hung them with mini-clothes pins on a piece of yarn that I attached to the self. With these hanging around I do feel like winter has arrived....despite the 60 degree weather we're having :)
