These tiny fabric creatures—with their red-and-white-striped tails—make fitting favors at a holiday dinner or delightful gifts for children to give to friends and relatives. They're a fun way to use up candy canes, and we love that they're an easy craft for little ones to make.


What you need


How to do it

Part 1

Step 1

On a photocopier, enlarge Candy Cane Mice template by 150 percent; cut out.

Step 2

With a pencil, trace ears and body onto felt; cut out.

Step 3

Cut inner ears and a dot for a nose from the felt in a contrasting color, then cut dots for the eyes from black. Glue the face and inner ears in place.

Step 4

Make slits in the body for ears and candy-cane tail where marked; to make cutting easier, fold felt across center of slits, and snip. Slip ears through slits at front; then slide wrapped candy cane through body slits, tucking the end underneath the ear piece at the back.
