Handmade gift of the day: Painted Oven Mitts

These cute oven mitts are a delightful gift idea for the kids to make for dad, mum, grandma, grandad, or family friends. They are perfect for any occasion as a birthday gift, Christmas gift, Mother's Day/Father's Day gift, or even a Thank You gift.

Why we love them:
  • They are simple to make - just grab a plain oven mitt and some fabric paint.
  • You can pick up oven mitts pretty cheaply in any discount department store.
  • You can pick your colours to suit your recipient or occasion, i.e. blue or red for a man, pink or purple for a woman and red and green for Christmas.
  • The handprints are a great design - they are personalized and capture a moment in time when the kids are a certain age. We also love date-stamping them too.
  • Tip - use contrasting coloured paint on a plain mitt to ensure your design stands out.
