METHOD 1: Quick and Easy Embellished Gloves:

Steps:

  1. Pick a pair of gloves that you’d like to give a new lease of life to, and then choose your embellishments. These could be ribbons, bows, sequins, or pearls.
  2. Position the embellishments on the back side of your gloves and mark around them very lightly with a pen, so that you remember where to sew or glue them in place.
  3. Attach your embellishments using a thread a needle, or use a glue gun and to secure them onto your gloves. Simple!

METHOD 2: Felt Heart Palm Gloves

Steps:

  1. Draw a heart on the white felt; you can draw it freehand or print out a heart-shaped template and draw around that. Neatly cut out your heart and then cut it directly in half.
  2. Turn your gloves over so that the palms are facing up. Dab a small amount of glue onto the left side of the heart, and then glue it onto the left glove. Then, dab a little glue onto the right side of the heart and glue that to the right glove.
  3. Thread your needle with a strand of red embroidery floss and sew around the outside of each heart half, leaving the insides blank. When you place your hands side-by-side, your gloves will form a whole heart!

Method 3: Studded Leather Gloves

Steps:

  1. This method is very easy and takes little to no time to make. Simply take your pair of leather gloves and lay them palm-side down.
  2. Decide where you want your studs to go and make a mark on the back of the glove with chalk.
  3. Pierce just the top of the material, push the studs through, and secure them with their appropriate backs. You’ve got rock ‘n’ roll gloves in a matter of minutes!
