Nothing says, “Welcome! Please come in!” like seasonal décor on the front door. This project will produce a warm sentiment through the whole of winter, long after the rest of your festive holiday ornaments are stored away.


2 yards of 1 1/2″ wide ribbon

8 safety pins

Assortment of colorful twigs, holly, and small pine boughs

1. Cut ribbon in half to make two equal lengths.

2. Attach the end of each ribbon to each mitten using
four saftey pins equally spaced.

3. Tie the ribbons together with a knot and a loose about 12″ from the top of of the mittens.

4. Hang the mittens on a door by looping the knot over a wreath hanger. Insert the branches as desired.
