Candy Cane Mice

These little sweeties have been around for years and what a fun craft for any age. There are so many fun things you can do with these! I love putting them on packages or treat bags, using them as gift tags or using them as name tags at your festive holiday table. It's a fun craft for the wee ones to make for sure!

How to make:

On a photocopier, enlarge mice template by 150 percent; cut out. With a pencil, trace ears and body onto felt; cut out. Cut inner ears and a dot for a nose from felt in a contrasting color, cut dots for eyes from black. 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.
