Crafts: Garden Apron and Gloves

Total Time Needed: 1 Hour

Cultivating a green thumb takes practice, patience, and a few handy accessories -- like this personalized apron and glove set.


  • Carpenter's apron (available at hardware stores)
  • Pair of gardening gloves
  • Fabric paints and brushes


Decorate the set with fabric paints. Brush on a garden design, such as a row of bright yellow sunflowers or a bunch of carrots. Or slice an onion and a pepper into halves, dip them in the paint and embellish the set with vegetable prints.

Fill the pockets with seed packets, a garden trowel, and a plastic misting bottle. Use pinch-style clothespins to clip the gloves to the front of the apron when they're not being worn.


This gardening set makes a great gift for a relative that loves to garden.
