These Dollar Tree Santa Mittens Are a Perfect Holiday Craft

If you have older kids who can use scissors and a hot glue gun, they are well on their way to making this great craft project for Christmas. This would be the perfect project for them to make for your home or friends and family.
This is an inexpensive craft project for the holidays. Because we already had the rope and the greenery, this activity cost between $3-$4 to make.
It is so festive! Whether you’re decorating with the traditional colors of Christmas, blues and silvers, or a modern farmhouse with black, you can find them at the dollar stores.
Tips For Making Santa Mittens
- When you cut into the duster cloth, it will shed heavily. Cut this over some newspaper or the trash can to catch the fluffy cast-offs.
- I used nautical rope from Dollar Tree as a hanger because it is thicker and more sturdy than jute twine. That said, you can use a beautiful holiday ribbon, too.
- If you don’t see any holiday greenery at your local Dollar Tree, check your local craft and hobby stores or large brick-and-mortar stores. This holiday craft staple is just about everywhere this time of year.

Cut the microfiber cloth in half widthwise. While cutting the cloth, it will start to shed. Be sure to save those pieces. Flip over the two pieces of microfiber cloth and add hot glue to the entire backside.
Press the pieces firmly onto each oven mitt. Add additional hot glue and fill in the sections with the pieces of the cloth that shed.
Cut two pieces of the rope about 12 inches in length. Tie the two pieces in a knot at one end. Attach the pieces to the backside of each glove with hot glue.
Overlap the two mittens and add some hot glue to adhere them together.
Add some greenery picks, just inside each of the mitts, and glue them into place.
Notes For Making Dollar Tree Santa Mittens
- We had several holiday greenery picks in our Christmas bin to choose from when we used them for our Santa mittens craft. If keeping this outside, hunt in the yard for small branches, pinecones, leaves, and small pine branches.
- If you cannot find red oven mitts at your local Dollar Tree, check Walmart, Target, or Amazon. This is a popular color, so you shouldn’t have any issues locating these.
- I’ve been asked this before: check the cleaning aisle for the dusters but also look on those end caps (I think they’re getting wise to the fact they’re being used in holiday crafting.
