DIY: Cozy Mitten Garland


A few of you (ahem...  Caleisha and Stephanie) noticed a sneak peak of this little holiday decoration over on Instagram recently.  I got the idea for this DIY from this adorable mini mitten garland at Anthropologie last year.  I wanted to create my own, but on a larger scale.

Ready to make some warm and cozy holiday decor?


HERE'S THE HOW TO:

I crocheted my own mittens using a pattern from Tangled, which is no longer available, but no worries I found a similar free pattern Crochet Me.  If you don't crochet, you could get the look by finding mittens at thrift stores, re-using your kids' old mittens when they grow out of them, or buying mittens out of season when you can get a good deal on them.  You could also cut mitten shapes out of felt to get a similiar look. Once you have your mittens, all that is left is to attach them to some string, twine or ribbon. I tied mine to a length of crochet chain stitch.







Now, how is that for some cozy holiday decor??
