Use a basic oven glove as an unpainted canvas for your next craft project. From a child making a Mother's Day gift to a Christmas-themed craft, oven glove craft ideas will make use of your imagination to create projects your friends will envy. A quick trip to your local dollar and craft store is all you need to get started on these oven glove crafts.

Mother's Day Gift

Let your child make a memorable gift you can keep for many years using fabric paints, a solid-coloured oven glove and fabric markers. Dip your child's hand in fabric paint and help her put a handprint on the front of the mitt. Use the other hand to put a handprint on the back of the oven glove. Your child can use the fabric markers to write her name, the date and "Happy Mother's Day" on the oven glove.


Create animal oven gloves using fabric markers, paints, a pencil and light-coloured oven glove. Take a picture of an animal, such as a chicken or cat, and trace the picture on the oven glove using a pencil. Use the fabric markers and paints to colour the picture on the mitt. Try to match the oven gloves to your kitchen theme. For example, draw a rooster on an oven glove if you have a rooster-themed kitchen. Hang the oven glove in your kitchen for added decoration.


To make a Christmas-themed oven glove, use fabric paints and solid-coloured oven gloves. Paint diagonal red stripes all the way down a white oven glove to make a candy can oven glove. Paint Christmas ornaments all over a light green oven glove to make it look like a Christmas tree. Decorate a white oven glove like a snowman: Paint the eyes of coal, carrot nose and black hat on the mitt.


Children can make puppets using oven gloves with several items found at your local craft and dollar store. Help your child hot-glue googly eyes and yarn (hair) on the oven glove. Then he can use fabric markers, glitter and fabric paint to make the rest of his puppet oven glove. For added decoration, let your child use felt or fabric to create clothes for the puppet. Throw a large cloth over a table and the child can kneel down behind the table to perform a puppet show.
