Last week to celebrate my birthday–I turned 30, baby–I created some packages to send to a few out-of-state friends. I basically sent them a party-in-a-box, to you know, celebrate me, Me, MEEEE!!!

I wanted a fun lil gift to put in the box (I’ll share it later) but I don’t have very much money at this current moment in time. Haha. Who ever does? Anyway, while I was checking out at Joanne’s I saw all these gloves in the $1 bin. So I grabbed a bunch of them and figured I’d think of something.

Then I thought, “Is there anything a teeny tiny pom pom doesn’t make cuter? ANYTHING? No, ok. Let’s do it.”

And I mean? Aren’t they cute? I think they’re so cute! And look way fancier than the $1 they cost to make. I got that black and white mug at Ikea and it’s like one or two dollars as well.

I’m ALWAYS looking for fast, easy, and most importantly inexpensive gifts that I can make for friends. I love these lil glovies cause they are SO inexpensive, but they are also VERY light, which makes them a great gift to send to far away friends! Either on their own, or with a cute mug and and some yummy tea?


To make these suckers all you need is gloves, tiny pom poms, and a hot glue gun. But you need to use a HIGH temperature hot glue gun. Most glue sticks are universal, but make sure your glue gun is a HIGH temp gun (or has a high/low switch). The high temp makes the glue better withstand washing and will adhere the pom poms more permanently. You CAN use a low temp gun, but the gloves might not wash well. YOU’VE BEEN WARNED.

I just put a dot of glue on the pom pom, then smooshed it on the glove. But I always put the glove on my hand to make sure the placement looked good and to make sure that the glue didn’t bond the front of the glove to the back.

So basically, it’s like, SO EASY. A fun craft night craft too!


Look what a serious model I am. No, seriously.

SNORT SNORT. But really, I’ve started snorting when I laugh and I CANNOT stop. It’s worse when I’m tired.

Happy crafting!

    HOW DO YOU DO IT?I Alison, I’m not sure if I know anyone more creative as you. These are perfect. I’m going to make them for my friends for Christmas (even though it doesn’t get that cold in Georgia!). Thank you for being a genius, sharing and letting me copy. 🙂

    Hey Cuz,
    I love seeing how you’re doing through your blog. It’s pretty impressive! More importantly, I think snorting might run in the family because Mariann and I snort when laughing now and both agree that is nearly impossible to stop. It’s hard to remember a time when a laugh wasn’t followed by a snort…..I like to think it’s a symptom of being really enthusiastic. Hope you are all doing well, send your beautiful family my love.
