How to Update Winter Gloves on the Cheap

January 11, 2011
I decided I definitely needed to update my winter gloves. They’re black. They go with everything. But I was tired of that. So I gathered just a few leftover materials from other projects and fixed ’em up real snazzy.
I grabbed my gloves, a couple of pearl beads, and some leftover fabric from an old sewing project. It’s kinda gauzy and filmy and light, but it worked well for this project because it didn’t add a lot of bulk.
I made two small rosettes using this tutorial by Little Birdie Secrets. (BTW, definitely go check out her super cute blog.) Then I hot-glued a bead to each.  
Finally I hot-glued the rosettes to the gloves. Make sure you verify you’ve got your gloves set so that there’s one for each hand, and you don’t accidentally glue the rosettes on the same side of each.

And now I’ve got magnificently updated gloves that still go with everything but with a little bit of class. A little bit of pizazz. A little bit of oomph. And I could go on and on…
