2. For a pair of ears, cut a 5-inch-long rounded bow-tie shape from green felt. This will be used to make the ears.

3. To put the mouse together, fit the ears through the slits in the body. Glue on googly eyes and a pom-pom nose.

4. Finally, add a curly tail by slipping a candy cane beneath the mouse and tucking the straight end between the body and the ears to hold it in place.
