INSTRUCTIONS

NOTE: Wrap a small piece of cellophane or masking tape around the jute end to make threading it through the drinking straws easier.

  1. Use a 3/4" flat brush and Snow White to paint the entire mitten shape.
    Step 0 Example
  2. Use a #12 flat brush and Sand Grey to paint around the snowflake and mitten cuff.
    Step 1 Example
  3. Use a #2 round brush and Crystal Craft Twinkles to paint inside the snowflake and on the mitten cuff.
    Step 2 Example
  4. Measure and cut the jute into the length needed for the garland. Use scissors to cut straws into thirds. Thread four straw sections onto the jute and then a mitten. Repeat with the number of mittens desired.
    Step 3 Example
  5. Make yarn pom-poms: Roll yarn into two large balls. Match strands of each ball together. Wrap around your hand approximately 100 times.
    Step 4 Example
  6. Carefully remove from your hand from inside the yarn and use another piece of yarn to tie the ball tightly in the center.
    Step 5 Example
  7. Use scissors to cut the yarn loops.
    Step 6 Example
  8. Use scissors to trim into a ball. Make several pom-poms.
    Step 7 Example
  9. Center a pom-pom between each mitten and tie onto the jute.
    Step 8 Example
  10. Hang the garland. The mittens and pom-poms should slide easily, if you need to adjust their positions.
