It’s easy to make one of the cutest crafts ever… these adorable candy cane mice! Making them is quick and easy and a whole lotta fun! I am making several to use on this years Christmas dinner place settings. These would be fun for kids to make at Christmas parties, or to give out to friends and relatives.
Felt – assorted colors
Pen or marker
Download our template and print it at 100% on card stock, then cut out. With a pen, trace ears and body onto felt, then them cut out. Cut inner ears and a dot for a nose from felt in a contrasting color. You can cut dots for eyes from black felt if you want, but I used google eyes.
Glue the face and inner ears in place. Make slits in body for ears and candy-cane tail where marked; to make cutting easier, fold felt across center of slits, and snip. Slip ears through slits at front; then slide wrapped candy cane through body slits, tucking the end underneath the ear piece at the back.
We dressed these little cuties up with some hair accessories!
I absolutely love, love, love Christmas!! When I'm not here you can always chat with me over at our official forums, Talk Christmas
