• Styrofoam circle, 10 inches in diameter
  • 3 plastic straight pins
  • White felt
  • Hot glue gun and glue
  • Red bows and ribbon
  • Holly
  • Exacto knife


  1. Cut the Styrofoam circle into four even pieces using a ruler and Exacto knife. Each piece will be used to make one mouse body.
  2. Trim and shape the edges of the Styrofoam to make them smoother.
  3. Use a small amount of hot glue to attach the straight pins as eyes and a nose on the mouse body.
  4. Cut out a long tail and two teardrop-shaped ears from white felt, and glue them in place.
  5. Make a loop from ribbon and push it into the Styrofoam at the top of the mouse’s head between the ears, then glue it down.
  6. Glue a small Christmas decoration at the base of the mouse.

Note: Be careful not to use too much hot glue when working with Styrofoam, as it can melt the foam.”
