This little charmer is easy to put together and would make a great gift topper as well.
What you will need:
- 1 Styrofoam ball (about the size of a small mouse-an egg shaped works really well)
- Scrap felt
- 1 long pipe cleaner
- 6 tiny, tiny tree twigs (for mouse whiskers)
- Small magnets
Instructions for the project: Carefully cut the Styrofoam ball in half. Then you can glue a small magnet on cut side of egg. Next you can cut some tiny eyes and a nose from the felt scraps and glue them onto the thinnest end of the egg shaped Styrofoam. The next step is to cut two small pieces of the pipe cleaner to make loops for the ears and glue them on. You can then use the other half of the pipe cleaner for a tail and glue it on. As a finishing touch you can glue 3 tiny tree twigs on both sides of the nose.
