Upcycled mittens

Have you got a nice wool sweater that shrunk?  We had a few of them and also picked up 2 at the thrift store.  I was inspired by this.  (I recommend watching the video)
Also, in our homeschooling group, my sister brought all the ingredients for us to make bird feeders using gelatin.  We hung them in the tree by the window so we can see the birds enjoying this treat!
We met up with some friends at a park near our house and went sledding.

Those are two ideas I might actually use! Our grandson gave us a pine cone bird feeder for Christmas and it's been so successful I would like to make more, and though I haven't a pine cone to start with I do have gelatin. And plenty of shrunken sweaters. Glad to have these tips well in advance of next winter.
