Dazzling Dusters

Total Time Needed: 1 Hour

Make spring cleaning a snap with a pair of whimsical work gloves.


  • Work gloves
  • Paper
  • Scissors
  • Felt
  • Glue
  • Plastic beads
  • Wooden dowel
  • Batting or newspaper
  • Ribbon


  1. Set each work glove on a piece of paper and trace around the four fingers and palm but not the thumb. Cut out the thumbless hand shapes. Then trace around the thumbs and cut out those shapes.
  2. Use the paper patterns to cut like shapes out of felt and attach them to the gloves with fabric glue.
  3. Now you can embellish the tops of the gloves by gluing on felt "fingernails" and plastic beads (tacky glue works best with plastic items).
  4. Once the glue is dry, slide the end of a wooden dowel into one of the gloves until it reaches the tip of the index finger. Then stuff that glove with batting or newspaper.
  5. Tightly tie ribbon around the wrist to secure the glove to the dowel, and you're ready to start dusting.
