Gather Your Supplies for the Felt Mouse Stocking:

These are the tools we used to create the felt mouse stocking:

  • A sheet of crafting felt
  • Embroidery Needle
  • Embroidery Thread
  • Scissors

Create your Felt Mouse Stocking:

Step 1: Cut out your felt stocking shape

Begin by folding your felt sheet in half and cutting out your stocking shape. This will give you two stocking shapes that you will sew together.

Cut out felt stockings sit on a wooden table.

Step 2: Sew Together

After you cut out your stocking, carefully begin sewing the pieces along the edges, except for the top opening.

P.S. You and your mouse friends may need a little help from adults to sew together the stocking.

Once finished have your little mice friends hang the stocking by the fire and wait for the treats to arrive on Christmas eve.

Create your Beeswax Orange Mouse Garland:

Step 1: Begin Shaping Your Oranges

Using your modeling beeswax begin shaping your oranges. You will need to warm the wax in your hands first. Create little ball shapes out of the darker orange color first and gently press down to create a flat circle. Then, make a slightly smaller, lighter orange (or yellow) colored circle. Cut the smaller, lighter colored circle into 6 slices and gently press it onto the larger, darker circle. This will create the orange slice.

Step 2: String Through the Twine

After making all your little oranges, take a pin or embroidery needle and poke a hole through part of your slice wide enough for your twine (or string of choice) to fit through.

Step 3: Enjoy!

Once all your oranges have been strung through the twine, it is ready to garnish the tree, fireplace, wall, or anywhere your little mouse wishes!
