DIY Merry Mouse Ornament

DIY Merry Mouse Ornament at @anightowlblog #trimyourtree

‘Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house not a creature was stirring except one merry little mouse. This little ornament has always been something that is near and dear to my heart because it was something I handmade when I was younger I decided to recreate it and share it with you for our Trim Your Tree DIY Ornament series this week on A Night Owl!

What you’ll need:

  • Polyfill / Cotton Ball
  • Walnut Half Shell
  • Pistachio Half Shell
  • Red Yarn
  • Pink Ribbon
  • Washi Tape
  • Hot Glue Gun / Hot Glue
  • Scissors
  • Fine Tip Permanent Marker

And the steps:

  • Start with hot gluing the red hanging yarn to the walnut half.
  • Shape the stuffing / cotton ball and hot glue it in the walnut to cover the red yarn.
  • Draw mouse eyes, nose and ears on the half pistachio shell.
  • Add the pink ribbon on the bottom of the pistachio shell to make a mouse tail.
  • Glue the mouse in place.
  • Add a flag with either the crafter’s name or a simple Merry Christmas!
