Hi ya’ll! We are counting down the hours until we can snuggle up by the fire instead of the stove in the Brit HQ kitchen. ‘Til then, consider us your li’l elves, looking for inspo for our next DIY gift everywhere — including Instagram. We recently came across these mittens that our dream gal pal Reese Witherspoon was rocking and we had a these-are-the-cutest-mittens-ever heart attack. Of course we had to create a DIY so that you can rock your own in the colder months ahead. These cute little gloves will make the perfect gift for a co-worker, assistant, teacher or even your mail carrier. Anyone who could use a little extra warmth this season <3


Materials and Tools:


— iron-on transfer paper

“Hi Ya’ll Bye Ya’ll” print out

— iron

— scissors and/or X-ACTO knife



1. Print your “Hi Ya’ll Bye Ya’ll” decal onto iron-on transfer paper, then cut it out. Use an X-ACTO knife for those tight corners.

2. Peel off the backs of the letters and place onto your gloves.

3. Iron away!


Our gloves were navy just like Reese’s, so we used iron-on paper for dark-colored garments. Print out the decals and then cut out the letters. Use an X-ACTO knife to get into those hard-to-reach places.


Peel off the backs and place onto the mittens.


Follow the instructions for your iron-on paper to get the perfect results.


Maddie stepped in to play Reese and did a phenomenal job :)


It isn’t a B+C holiday article without a fun gif! Hi ya’ll! Okay, now bye ya’ll!


So guess what? Couples mittens is a thing. The center mitten allows you to hold hands with your special someone. So of course we needed to make a Reese version of this too.


Christmas music + these two = dance party.


Happy HoliDIYS, everyone!
