Hey, hey Snap peeps! I’m Jessica from Mom 4 Real, and I am so happy to be here sharing a fun last minute holiday gift idea with you!
My daughter, Kate has been asking me for texting gloves for the past month. I must admit, I had no clue what texting gloves were, but she quickly schooled me on the latest technology. She explained that when you wear gloves, it is nearly impossible to play on a tablet or text. I Googled them, and they can be quite pricey. So, I thought, hmmm….surely we can make our own. So…we tried it out. I am thrilled to say, it worked for our Android devices, and for less than $1 per pair…whoop!
I started by buying 2 pair of stretchy gloves. It cost less than $2 for both pair together.
Next, I took some puffy paint and painted a heart at the tip of each finger. Once the puffy paint dries, it has a rubber like consistency that will allow you to touch and use the keys on your phone.
We decided to make a girl pair and boy pair. I used my Silhouette machine to cut out some baseballs for one pair and some pretty snowflakes for the other. I used iron on vinyl too. If you don’t own a cutting machine, you can buy iron on decals at any craft store.
Once the images were cut, I ironed them on to the gloves.
I am so pleased with the way they turned out!
Kate was so excited to test them, and we are happy to report that they are perfection!!! I so love finding ways to make things ourselves. Kate asked if we could make some for her BFF’s, and of course, I said YES!
