In this post, I will show you how to make your very own Groot Gloves! I am so excited to share this DIY with you because our family loves Groot (especially in his baby form), and this project is an awesome way to have fun and to help your kiddos WANT to keep their gloves together instead of losing them all over the house (can I get a witness?)! Watch for a link to my guest post over at Lord of the Trekkies to read even more about my inspiration for this unique DIY and my love of Groot!
DIY Groot Gloves
For this project you will need:
Felt in light brown, black, green, and white
Iron on bonding (I used this no-sew kind!)
OPTIONAL: Needle and thread (if you want to get REALLY fancy and sew down your shapes)

First, print out this Groot Gloves Printable Template and cut it into three strips as shown! Next, cut a piece of felt and bonding out for each template strip in the coordinating color.
Iron on the backing according to package directions. Make sure the paper side of the bonding faces your iron! TIP: I used a medium heat setting (due to the gloves being polyester) and it worked well.
Once you have all four felt colors bonded to your adhesive, stack the coordinating template for each color to the coordinating felt color (tape or pin them together for easier cutting)! Cut out each embellishment (I tried to put my cut outs in little piles according to color).
Lay out the gloves (keeping in mind that you need the words facing toward the thumb of the left glove or they might end up on your palm). Peel your newly-made “I Am Groot” iron-on, place it on the desired glove, and bond with your iron.
Remove the paper backing from all the cut-outs and lay out your Groot! Layer the eyes from light brown to black to white and the mouth from light brown to black (I laid out the whole thing before ironing so I could move things around)!
Gently iron on your Groot, being sure to use short increments so you won’t melt the glove! Now show off your out-of-this-world style!
I hope you are as excited about this Groot DIY project as my family has been! I am over the moon about this project because I Googled and Googled and did not find these little guys ANYWHERE! Help me make Groot Gloves this fall’s biggest fashion statement through the social buttons below!
