Snowflakes are a miracle of nature: frozen bits of water vapor crystallized into a perfect work of art. Although not as intricate as Mother Nature, you can have you own snowflakes sparkle on a wintery day. The snowflakes on these gloves won’t melt but they will sparkle. For this project I used:
1 pair of black gloves
58 - 12ss Crystal Rhinestones
Wax tipped tool or tweezers
Begin by placing a piece of wax paper inside the gloves to keep the glue from seeping through and gluing both sides together. Lay the design on the top side of the glove in a snowflake pattern. Once you are satisfied with the layout, remove one of the rhinestones using the tweezers or wax tipped tool. Place a drop of glue about the same size as the rhinestone and gently press the rhinestones into the glue drop so that the glue covers the edges of the rhinestone.
Continue gluing rhinestones in this manner until both gloves are done. Allow to dry flat for 24 hours. When completely dry, remove the wax paper from inside the gloves.
You now have a fun accessory that not only keeps your hands warm but sparkles as well.
