Hat and Glove Set

The holidays are over, and winter is here. It’s the perfect time to do some serious crafting if you’re stuck indoors. Fight off the winter blahs by making this button embellished Hat and Glove Set. It’s a fun way to give an old pair of gloves and hat a new look! We selected specific crystal buttons for this project, but you can also use buttons you already have on hand.

We paired crystal buttons and flower shapes with a pastel green. You can also go bold with bright colors, fun shapes, and even letters. This is a fun project for kids. Let them pick out the colors and buttons. You can sew the buttons to their favorite hat and mittens.
