'Tis the season to decorate! Who says the mice can't join in on all the fun? These cute crafts for your dollhouse keep little hands busy and help get everyone in a festive and happy mood. Super simple and absolutely adorable, these crafts are a lovely way to spend a winter afternoon.
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
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.
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.
Step 3: Enjoy!
Once finished have your little mice friends hang the stocking by the fire and wait for the treats to arrive on Christmas eve.
Gather Your Supplies for the Beeswax Orange Mouse Garland:
These are the tools we used to create the beeswax orange mouse garland:
- Stockmar Modeling Beeswax
- Embroidery Needle or Pin
- (optional) Crafting Knife
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!
