- From some thick, bright colored, scrap cotton, make 5 long fingers: cut & sew tubes that will go over the fingers of your garden glove.
- Line each finger with strip of a thick plastic bag.
- From a thinner fabric, cut 10 circles, and sew them together in pairs, leaving a little opening.
- Fill each ball with catnip.
- Sew the balls onto the fingers.
- Sew some jingle bells onto the fingers of the hand.
