How to get oversized mittens to fit properly?

Is it possible to adjust mittens so that they have a closer fit? I received a beautiful pair of mittens, made of wool, with fleece lining. The colors are beautiful, and they are really warm, but they are a bit too big. Specifically, they can't be adjusted on the wrist, it's a bit too wide and has no elastic on it, so I feel the cold air getting in, and sometimes I feel they are slipping. I already tried throwing them in the drier, and although they shrank a little, they are still too wide in the wrist. How could I modify the mittens so that they fit in better?
