The companion to our champagne cork mouse
Materials List

hot glue gun

box cutter


cutting surface

tiny pom pom

How to
Step 1

Cut two disks, approximately 1/4" wide from your wine cork.  It is easiest to do so by using your box cutter and turning the cork on the blade.

Step 2

Cut two small triangles out of each cork slice.  These are her ears.

Step 3

Use hot glue to attach the ears to the top of the champagne cork.

Step 4

We will use ball end straight pins for her face, arms, legs and tail.  For the eyes you will want to cut your pins down to about 1 inch in length.  Insert them in the cork.

Step 5

Use full length pins to create her arms, legs and tail.  The tail is what makes her stand so you will need to position that pin accordingly.

Step 6

She needs an outfit for the cold.  We begin with a hat.  Cut the tip of a finger off of a stretchy glove.  Cut two small holes for her ears.

Step 7

Pull the piece of glove over her head and ears.  Glue a small pom pom to the top.

Step 8

Cut a straight piece of one of the fingers of the glove.  This will become her sweater.

Step 9

Pull the piece of glove up over the her cork body.  All done.  She is ready to meet her friend.
