Decorate My Mantel- Mitten Garland

Mitten Christmas Garland
I finished my first mantel project today.  A Christmas Mitten Garland.  It was simple, easy, and fun.

Mitten Garland MaterialsI 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.
Fleece Mitten 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.
Mitten Garland DetailI 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.

  1. Oh my gosh. That is too adorable! You could even add family member names across the white parts.
