Hi Friends, thanks for stopping by and hope you’re doing great and taking time to enjoy the holiday season.
Here are some $1 Store Oven Mitts & Pot Holders that I embellished with cute ruffles and hearts. This is another great gift idea where you take these inexpensive $1 Store items and turn them from ok to WOW in a matter of minutes.
I’m very excited to have these featured as Huffington Posts top 40 Diy Holiday Gifts for Absolutely Everyone on your list. Click here to see all the incredible gift ideas they are sharing.
I always have some people on my gift list that I want to do something extra for like my step mom and Lexi’s Grandma, teachers and even those $10 gift exchanges and these are perfect for them.
I started with the 2 Oven Mitts and the pack of 2 Pot Holders = $3 total.
I had the Heat & Bond and bought this roll at Walmart for $4.97 a year ago. I had the striped fabric in my stash and you would need about 1/4 yard. Cut two hearts and 4 pieces 2″ x 16″.
Cut hearts from the Heat & Bond and iron it on to the back of the hearts. Then peel paper off to reveal the sticky side.
Then trim any excess of the Heat & Bond so there isn’t any shown from the front side (this helps not to stick to your iron). Then Iron the heart down onto Pot Holder.
If you have embroidery on your sewing machine that’s fabulous. If not I use a zig zag stitch set to wide and take me time sewing around the edges or appliqueing it on. I do two rounds of stitches and it looks great.
How cute are those? And you can easily do other things if hearts aren’t your thing, like trees or wreaths.
For the Oven Mitts hem all the edges of your 4 ruffles and press.
Gather your ruffles and then sew them on to your Oven Mitt. I used a seam ripper and opened the side edge and then sewed it back when I was done so I could sew my ruffles on easier.
These are very nice quality, nice and thick and my hubs even approved them.
I’ve been adding ruffles on to oven mitts for a while now and LOVE the way they turned out.
There you go, another great gift idea that doesn’t break your bank. These are great to take you and your friends right through the holidays and into Valentines Day too.
You can make a basket with other cooking utensils like spoons and whisps and tie it up to really make a great hostess gift too.
