Minnie or Mickey Mouse Gloves, DIY

In preparation for the cutest Minnie Mouse costume ever, I searched for just the right gloves for my pre-teen and couldn't find what we wanted so I decided to make them myself.

This project was much easier than I anticipated and turned out so cute.




All you need is a white pair of gloves (I got mine at JoAnn's Fabric for $1.00) and some black glitter glue. The glitter adds some fun sparkles to the black lines.

Lay the gloves out flat or alternately you can put the glove on your hand to apply the glue.
Put one strip of black in the middle and one slanted out on either side.

You'll see that the glitter glue looks pretty goopy here, but it will dry nicely overnight.

Here's the finished product. The glue absorbs into the material and makes a nice even line.

We didn't encounter any problems with cracking when she wore the gloves so I'm calling this a success!
