Gussied-Up Gloves

Skull GloveHere’s a fun upcycling idea: Naughty Secretary Club has several easy suggestions for embellishing a plain pair of gloves.

You can often find pretty lace gloves at secondhand stores, but they’re frequently stained or otherwise less than pristine. Using fabric paint, dye, or ribbon, you can make them like new and customize them to your heart’s content.

I like her idea of dying pairs of gloves to match a jacket, and there are all sorts of things you can do with a little fabric paint and a stencil. You can make matching pairs for you and a friend, or do “opposites” gloves with opposing colors or images on the hands.

This is a super-simple project with a great payoff.
