Candy Cane Mice

Holiday Boot Camp is back babies!

Today's craft is a fun and inexpensive way to give Candy Canes to people in a more exciting way. This is a great idea if you are trying to this of things for your kids to give to their friends or for party favors!

Here's what you need:

  • Felt
  • Scissors
  • Candy Cane
  • Ribbon
  • Puffy Paint
  • Hot Glue
Here's what you do.

From your main color felt, trace and cut out the body of the mouse. You want it to be pretty much shaped like an egg.

Next your ears. From the green I cut out two rounded triangles. Then from the white i cut out the same shape only with a bubbly trim.

Next, cut two slits on the felt. This is where the candy cane will feed through so that it looks like a tail.

Now paint on his lil face!

So now we hot glue! Glue on the ears and then also a little ribbon right below where his tail will stick out.

Next feed your candy cane through the slits. To help it stay in place better, put a small dot of glue on the back side of the felt right where his nose is and then also right behind the bow.

And thats it! You are done!

I hope you liked this fun fast and easy Christmas craft idea. Now its time for the crafterista to go to sleeeeep!!

Good night world!!
