Mice, Mice, Mice Everywhere

Well, today, I made lots of mice. I bought this pattern off of ebay from staglaneprimtives and every year the mice always sell out for me. I grungy my mice up, I paint them a mixture of coffee, cinnamon, cloves and water and little brown paint, then put them in the oven on low temperature to bake. They smell so good. When they are dry, they are kind of stiff, I embroidery little nose and french knots for eyes.

In this picture, I bought some mouse traps, stained them. I made cheese out of that green floral foam. I cut the shape I wanted, then painted with antique gold paint. It almost looks real.

Next, I had a couple of baby shoes left from goodwill that I hadn't used yet. Stuff the little mice in the shoes, with some greenery and berrries and of course, their little piece of cheese. I am going to put a tag on these, Baby's first Christmas.


Next, I used up some of the last of the feathertrees I had. I made the mice, and glue to the bowl. Decorated the tree with tiny little candy canes, glued a rusty star to the top. I had some of that Christmas ribbon garland that you buy at christmas and cut off the words "Merry Christmas" and hot glued that to the branches.
