We are slowing moving towards spring but there is sure to be a lot more cold weather before we get there. Pocket hand warmers are perfect for cold days – larger ones work can be tucked into pockets along with your hands and smaller ones can be put directly into mittens to help keep hands warmer. They are super easy to make and your entire family is sure to love them.
They make great stocking-stuffers for the holidays but I think these heart shaped ones could be fun Valentine’s day gifts too.
Not only are these DIY Pocket Hand Warmers with Free Printable Labels great as pocket warmers, but they also double as cold packs. Keep a few in your freezer for use as cold compresses!
