Stuck inside on a winter day? Here some cute, easy, and fun crafts to keep you entertained.

The Gloved Animal
What you’ll need:
  • 1 Glove
  • Scissors
  • Needle & thread
  • Stuffing (just enough to fill the glove)
  • Buttons (three per glove) 

To make your own stuffed little animal you need to take your glove and cut the fingers off, leaving only the pinky finger and index finger uncut. Next, you will need to sew all of cut the fingers closed. Make sure that no stuffing will be able to come out of the fingers. Then, you can stuff your glove through the bottom opening of the glove (where your hand would go). Afterwards, you can sew the bottom opening closed. Lastly, sew the three buttons onto your stuffed glove so that it has two eyes and a nose.

The Snow Globe
What you’ll need:
  • Mason jar
  • Hot glue gun
  • Water
  • Glitter
  • A small figurine

To make this cute homemade snow globe you will need to hot glue your small figurine to the inside of a jar lid. Make sure that it is centered and will not fall off. After the glue dries, place your lid and figurine off to the side. Fill your jar with water. Next, add as much glitter as you would like to the water. Then, screw the lid tightly on the jar. Shake it up, and you now have your own home made snow globe!

The Reindeer Candy Cane Holder
What you’ll need:
  • 2 candy canes
  • 2 plastic eyes
  • A small pom-pom
  • An old scarf/sweater or any piece of fabric (preferably a thin piece)
  • Scissors
  • Hot glue gun

First, you will need your old scarf/sweater. You will only need a small part of it that covers about 2 inches on the bottom of your candy canes. Line the two candy canes next to each other with one curved end facing right and the other facing left. After, take the fabric piece, and wrap the fabric around the base of the candy canes (the straight ends). Then, hot glue the end of the fabric down. Make sure you do not accidentally hot glue it to the candy cane, and that it fits snuggly around the candy canes. Lastly, hot glue the pom-pom (for the nose) and plastic eyes to the piece of fabric that is wrapped around the base of the candy canes.
