H&M with DIY gloves decor


Hello friends! This look is very special to me, I will explain why: this hat is a gift from my husband, he bought it in  Kyrgyzstan and these knee warmers were made - hand knitted by my mom. She is not only a great photographer, but also a great DIYer!
These gloves originally were black and I decided to decorate them with green felt - my inspiration came from  this beautiful hat. See how I made this felt decor at the end of this post.





 For this DIY, you will need:
 a pair of leather or faux leather gloves, color doesn't matter.

 Felt, any color you think will go well with the color of your gloves
Glue- better Gorilla kind, see the photo below

And 40 to 60 minutes of your spare time ;o)

Measure the length of each finger of the glove and then draw the pattern on the felt and cut it out.

When they are all ready, apply tiny amount (dots) of the glue on the back of the felt and glue each pattern to the gloves. Make sure not to put a lot of this glue - it will be visible on the outside, when it dries it turns white. I have chosen this glue because it is super strong,  if you want to take this applique off it will go together with the leather. This is my version of the pattern, of course you can use your imagination and make any pattern you want.


All pictures are taken by my mom!
My outfit:
