How to Make a Wooden Spoon Mouse Craft
– wooden party spoon
– white paint
– white and pink cardstock paper
– white yarn or string
– round pink bead (Ours came from this Princess Plastic Beads set which we received from our friends at Craftprojectideas.com. You can find them at your local Walmart in the craft section.)
– black marker
– hot glue gun (requires adult supervision)
1. Start by painting the back of your wooden spoon with white paint. We used white paint but paint your mouse whatever color you’d like. Let it dry completely.
2. Cut out mouse ears from your white cardstock paper and pink circles to go inside them. Glue the pink circles onto the white ears. After you paint is dry, glue your ears onto the back of your mouse face. Next glue your googly eyes onto your spoon.
3. Cut two small sections of white string or yarn for the mouse whiskers. Add a dot of hot glue onto the middle of your mouse face and glue the two pieces of string in an X shape to make whiskers. Now add another dot of hot glue on top of the whiskers and glue your pink round bead on top for the mouse nose.
4. Finish your wooden spoon mouse craft by gluing a piece of white string onto the back of the spoon for a mouse tail and then draw a mouth onto your mouse with your black marker.
