Candy Cane Mice

My grandmother's Christmas tree always had a group of candy cane mice hanging from some of the branches. After Christmas dinner each of the grand kids got to pick a mouse and enjoy the sweat treat. These little guys are great for goodies, gifts, or even just to add a little to your decor.

(You can use red and green like I did, or brown for 
a more natural looking mouse. I've even seen a blue one. )
Candy Cane
2 Googly Eyes
Black marker
(Print the pattern out at original size or as a 5X7)

1. Trace the patterns onto the felt with chalk.

2. Cut all the pieces out. Don't forget the 4 lines in the body area.

3. Fold the ears in half long ways and thread through the ear holes. 

4. Glue on googly eyes.

5. Use the black marker to add a nose.

6. Thread a candy cane through the tail hole and ears: See picture above.

6. Attach to gifts, hang on the tree, or use to decorate your goody table.

I cut a lot of the felt shapes out at once, then let the kids assemble them. Bubee is great at making these guys, I just have to watch him closely to make sure he doesn't eat too many candy canes.
