What better way to save a memento from baby’s first Christmas than by using something he or she actually wore that first Christmas? It is easy to upcycle sweet baby mittens into a beautiful holiday decor.
Cut a piece of embroidery floss approximately 30” long. Embroidery floss is usually made up of six separate strings. Separate the floss so that you are only working with three pieces of the string at a time.
We used photos that were printed out on my home printer. But real photos will work as well. Roll the photos up nice and tight and secure with a small piece of embroidery thread tied around the center to keep in place. Slip photos inside of embroidered mitten.
If mittens have a string already attached to them, simply knot the strings together along the top and you are finished. If not, cut a small 10” piece of yarn and secure the ends of the yarn to each mitten with a few stitches back and forth to secure.
