I finished my first mantel project today. A Christmas Mitten Garland. It was simple, easy, and fun.
I started with a fleece scarf from the dollar store, some white felt, some rick rack left over from my vintage smock project and some twine. Yes, this truly was a $1.00 project.
I cut mitten shapes out of the green fleece scarf, added a strip of white felt along the top, and embellished with a little rick rack. A single line of stitching along the rick rack holds everything together.
I pierced holes in the top, and using the yarn fringe from the scarf, tied them to a piece of twine.
Project number one done! I’m one step closer to having a decorated mantel by Thanksgiving. It looks a bit lonely on its own, but I think it will be sweet when the rest of my mantel is decorated.
What should I make next?
