Candy Cane Mice Template {from Angela @ Typical English Home}

Candy Cane Mice Template @ Blissful Roots

"'Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse".

'The Night Before Christmas' is the perfect bedtime story to read before tucking your kids in on Christmas Eve. Why not tie in this family tradition with making these cute and traditional candy cane mice?

Step one. Print out the felt mice template, shown above.

Step two. Cut out the mouse's body, nose, ears and inner ears from felt, using the template as your guide. Don't forget to cut two slits in the body of the mouse (as shown).

Step three. Glue the nose and inner ears onto the appropriate part of the mouse. Sew on beads for eyes, or use googly eyes.

Step four. Insert the ears through the slits. The candy cane is inserted through the underside of the mouse, as shown in this picture. This will form your mouse's tail. 

Felt candy cane mice are great as a kids' craft, a party favor or a stocking filler!

Thank you Brooke for letting me share a post with your readers. If you enjoyed this post I hope you will swing by A Typical English Home to say hi, and check out some of the other Christmas projects I have been working on. 

Thank you, Angela for the darling project and template!  I love having cute, quick, and easy crafts to do with my three boys at Christmastime.  These candy can mice are exactly the kind of activity that they could do themselves and enjoy.

I've raved about my love for Angela's font round ups many times before.  Just when I think she can't come up with any more amazing fonts, she does.  Check out these Christmas fonts she's shared.  I always like making my own gift tags, and these fonts will make that totally easy!  There are so many amazing fonts to choose from, and the dingbats will add the perfect finishing touch.  I can't wait to get started.  Thanks again, Angela!

I still scored the more points than I ever have in a season for GS. I think you would be hard pressed to find somebody with the same consistency I have had over the years so I am happy with that. website builder resume
