The Santa candy cane holders were such a big hit, I thought I'd share the horse and the mouse that so many people mentioned. There are patterns for both at the bottom of this post. Just like with the felt Santa, be sure to use a thick craft glue, not regular white school glue.The mouse is super quick and easy. Cut a large tear drop shape and an ellipse for the ears. Pop on the google eyes embroidery floss whiskers, pom pom nose, and make a few cuts for the ears and candy cane to go through, and it's done! I've seen people embellish the body with a child's initial or some glittery swirly design.The horse is a little more difficult, at least for me, because it is glued at angles and I always have trouble lining things up. He is double-sided, with an eye and an ear on both front and back. The mane is made by cutting angled slits in the felt. The eyes are a circle of felt with a sequin in them, or a google eye. I've also seen this made with fancy gold stitching around the shape of the head instead of glue.
Let me know if you try any of these or modify the designs. I love to get new ideas!
