EASY Christmas Craft
I was cruisin' awhile back... Not main street!
I was cruisin' the internet... and I came across a picture of these mice
I thought, "These are just super cute!"
This was wa-a-a-ay before I went to Nevada to spend time with my kids and grandsons. Initially I thought I'd do this little craft with my grandsons... well... time just didn't allow for Grandma to have craft-time with the grandsons. I left the supplies with mom and I brought some home to make my own.
I decided today that I would make a few...
So I cut out the paper pattern... (larger version at the bottom of this post)
I traced the pattern on two different colors of felt
And I cut out the felt
I then proceeded to glue the inner ear pieces of opposite colors onto the ear pieces. (If you're
impatient in a hurry like I was I'd suggest you wait to glue them on until after you put the ears through the slits, as I just had to re-glue them.)
The instructions at Martha Stewart say to cut out little tiny pieces of felt for the nose and the eyes and then to glue them on... me... well I don't always follow instructions!
I used a Sharpie.
After making the face with the Sharpie I put the candy canes in for their tails. You can get them in all sorts colors so you can even color coordinate them if you want!
From the time I started to cut out the paper pattern to the time I put the candy canes in for the tails it took me 1/2 hour. EASY PEASY!!
