- Wiggle Eyes
- Seed Beads
- Chenille Stem
- Craft Glue or Hot Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
- Paint Brush
Use a medicine dosage cup - the kind that comes on top of most bottles of cough syrup. Paint your medicine cup. Cup a small half circle of felt or craft foam and glue it in place to be the cup's handle.
Glue a 1-inch pom-pom on the bottom of the cup, glue another 1-inch pom-pom on top of that. This will be your mouse's body and head peeking over the side of the cup. Cut about a 4-inch piece of chenille stem and glue it inside the cup as the mouse's tail.
Cut out 2 small felt circles for the mouse's ears and glued them in place. Use a small pom-pom for the mouse's raised nose/muzzle area and then glued on a black seed bead (If you want to make small thread whiskers, glue these on before the seed bead). Glue the wiggle eyes in place and you now have a tiny mouse sitting in a cup!
You can also add a piece of ribbon or yarn and make this a fun Christmas tree ornament!
