Save Your Old Mittens! You’re Going To Need Them To Make These Cuties!


I am so excited to share this craft project with you! I actually found it on a Hungarian website and loved them so much I had the text translated so I could share it. These Adorable Mitten Dolls are made with 1 finger gloves or mittens, a bit of rice and rubber bands. It doesn’t get much simpler than that!

Several of these all grouped together would make a beautiful christmas decoration for a shelf, or a tabletop. These also make wonderful gifts for kids or adults! I know my mother would LOVE these!

  1. I just wondered what goes in the arm so it isn’t flopping around? They are adorable. My grand kid would like to make these

    • The arms have rice in them and the ends glued or sewn shut. The arms that hang down to hold the twigs and other things needs to also be glued to the side of the snowman to firm it for holding the embellishments. After you make them, I would LOVE if you would post pictures on my facebook page 🙂 Happy Holidays!

  2. Hi…Can you tell me what size for the head and how you made the little hats especially the tan and red ones, They are adorable!

    • Hi Cyndi, the red and tan hats are the easiest.. that is the elastic part of the glove, rolled down and either pinned or glued down. The little head goes inside the makes it look like a hat. The heads are 1-2 inch balls depending on whether you used a child size glove or an adults. 🙂
