- green or red felt
- candy canes
- Fold a small piece of felt in half and cut it as if you were making
a heart, but don't make the two humps as if it were a heart - make it
kind of flat.
- While the felt is still folded cut two small slits on the fold (big
enough for the candy cane to slide into it).
- Glue eyes on.
- To make the ears you need to cut two slits at the head of the
mouse (where ears should go) and make a long hour glass shape making the
tips point. Thread the ears through the slits.
- Put the candy cane into the slits with the curved in of the cane
sticking out of the tail end of the 'mouse' (fat end of the 'heart').
There you have it - a Christmas mouse that you can hang on the tree by his
These instructions might not be too clear, but if you take a piece of
paper and try it now I know you will see what I mean. It is a very easy
craft and cute.
