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!!


Enjoy!!
