    We got the air to stay in by knotting the end like a balloon. Our problem was not being able to get them to stick to each other. We made a massive paper cone and using selotape stuck each glove to the cone and it worked fine. It was used in the local Methodist Church Tree Festival where the asked for 120 trees and got over 150 and ours was certainly the talking point, featured on the local radio and raised money for the local hospice…relevant using surgical gloves. A great idea and well done.

    1. That’s a great idea!
      When I was working on mine I thought that double sided tape and poster board would have worked well. I am glad to hear that it was effective for you!

      I am also thrilled to hear it raised money for a great cause!

    I had trouble with vinyl gloves. Latex work much better if you’ve got them. It’s be 2 days and they are still full.

  3. I am trying to make the glove christmas tree but I can get the air to stay in the gloves.  Does any one have any ideas of how they closed the gloves  I need help  thanks Becky A
