A Wooden Mitten with Authentique

I love keeping my eye out for unusual items to alter, and recently I came across this cute wooden mitten ornament at the thrift store. The original paint job and decals didn’t go with my decor, but I knew it would be easy to alter and up-cycle using some of my favorite scrappy supplies.
With just a bit of paint and a few touches, I now have an adorable ornament to love or to gift. And it was easy, too, thanks to the help of some fun Kiwi Lane Design templates, our product partner this week on the Authentique blog.
The holly was made with Kiwi Lane’s Christmas Accessory template set and Authentique Joyous 6×6 Bundle paper. I added machine stitching down the center of each leaf and then lightly folded them for a bit of lifelike dimension. Then some ink and mica glitter to the edges before tucking them up into the bow. The tag is from the 12×12 Statements sheet, dressed up with some Details stickers. So easy, and so fun!
