DIY Alexander McQueen Gloves

-Solid Color Nylon Gloves ($8)
-Solid Sports Socks ($7)
-2 Brooches
-Gold Plated Liquid Hot Dog Beads ($2.20)
-Hot glue gun
If you already own a pair of fingerless gloves, or would rather purchase a pair instead of making your own, please skip to step 6.
1. First, you need to make your fingerless gloves! Using your scissors, cut across your gloves horizontally, removing all the fingers. Then snip off the tip off the thumb.
2. Next, it's time to make an insert for the gloves. Start by cutting the feet off the socks. The idea is to create a tube shape that is approximately 12-inches long..
3. Halfway down the long side of the sock, make a one slit (approximately one-inch long), which will act as the thumbhole.
4. Slide the fingerless glove inside the sock tube and pull the glove's thumb through the slit.
5. Repeat Steps 1-4 for the second glove.
6. Now it's time to create the gloves' embellishments! For the first glove, glue the hot dog-shaped beads onto each brooch to create dimension. Ideally, you should create a sunburst effect, as shown above, but customize the gloves however you want.
7. Wait approximately 10 minutes or until completely dry.
8. Once you are finished with both brooches, pin or glue them to the glove. 


  1. Really cool idea, I'm so doing this sometime this weekend, and while we're at it - Cool blog!
