This is an oldie but goodie, a bit updated with supplies from the new millennium. I used to make these by the box-load when my daughter was little and give one to every one of her classmates. You can craft a ton in absolutely no time too!!
|Mouse pattern, click on and print full size|
You will need:
Foam sparkle sheet (not the sticky back)
Wiggle eyes and a small jingle bell or pompom
1. Cut the two pattern pieces from sparkle foam. Cut the three slits, two vertical and one horizontal.
2. Feed the earpiece in and out through the vertical slits evenly.
3. Turn over and straighten the ears as shown in photo. Glue on two wiggle eyes and a small jingle bell for the nose.
4. Feed a candy cane starting from the front and continuing under the back section of the ears. The crook of the cane will be at the bottom. Hang it on the tree from the crook.
Now for the gift-giving…I think you all are the best and I would love to make a ton of these ornaments as I did for my daughter’s classes and give one to each and every one of you, but alas, the USPS is a bit pricey for that, so I will draw a name out of a hat and one of you will find a stick horse and a mousey in your mailbox very soon. Oh, you need to leave a comment that says you would actually want it in that mailbox because I certainly wouldn’t want to send it to anyone who doesn’t. Next week, I will draw that name.
