  • Pencil
  • Paper scissors

INSTRUCTIONS:

TO CREATE THE MITTEN UTENSIL HOLDERS

  1. Measure the utensils and draw out a mitten template on a piece of paper then cut it out. PRO TIP: You can print a template from online if you aren’t comfortable drawing.
  2. Trace the template onto felt, two mitten shapes for each utensil holder.
  3. Cut the felt mitten shapes out with fabric scissors.
  4. Glue each utensil holder together. Two felt mitten pieces glued together along the edges except along the top.
  5. To create the cuffs, cut two 1” tall rectangles that are slightly wider than the top of the mitten for each utensil holder in a contrasting color of felt.
  6. Glue the cuff of each mitten onto each side, make sure not to seal the top though!
  7. Allow the glue to dry.
  8. Place a set of utensils into each holder.

TO CREATE THE SNOWMAN CUPS

  1. Draw the snowman face onto each cup with puffy paint, black for the eyes and mouth. Orange for the carrot nose.
  2. Lay each cup on its back with the puff paint face up, so the paint dries without running. Wedge the cup in between something so it stays in place.
  3. Allow the paint to dry for 24 hours before you set the table.

Set the table with the utensil holders, snowman cups, and paper snowflakes underneath the plates to add a little magic. Enjoy!
