Today I’m going to share with you How to Make Valentine’s Hershey Kisses Mice – a sweet, easy little Valentine’s craft! Being crafty is not generally my “thing” but last week I had a very special cake order with a special request for these mice, so I had to get outside my comfort zone!
It also helps that these are the easiest craft ever 😉
In fact, they’re so easy that after I made about half of them, my 12 year old daughter asked if she could finish them for me…. and of course I said “yes”!
Okay, so here’s what you’ll need:
- Hershey’s Kisses
- Little Felt Hearts (with or without the sticky back, but I like the sticky back!)
- Glue – for my tutorial, I used stick glue. I think school glue would work as well, but it might require a little more drying time.
- Googly Eyes
- Ribbon or Baker’s Twine
Are ya ready? These are so easy, you’ll have them ready in a flash!
Start by snipping the “Kisses” flags off the top of the Hershey’s Kisses – just be careful to not cut into the wrapper and expose the chocolate. Or you might have to eat them. Okay – so cut into one or two… you must have snacks while you work, right? 🙂
Next peel the sticky back off of the heart and stick it to the bottom of a Kiss. If you’re not using the kind with sticky backs, use glue to attach it.
Then apply glue to the bottom of another kiss and press them together (bottom to bottom) – hold for a few seconds to make sure it adheres.
Rub a little glue onto the top of the Kiss (where the eyes will go – in front of the “ears” or top of the heart)…
.. then press the eyes on and cut a piece of ribbon around 2-3″ long. I also used a little dot of stick glue to attach the “tail” to the bottom of the Kiss on the back.
For whatever reason, I didn’t take a good pic of the side of the mice so you could see the tail, but they’re there… promise! Let them dry for just a little while and they’re all set!
You can see lots of them in this pic:
You can also see that when my little girl took over, she used bigger googly eyes than I had used and they were super cute. We also mixed up the ears and used red and two shades of pink!
So in addition to being super cute for Valentine’s…. guess what else these little guys are perfect for? A Cinderella Party!!
Sweet Analeise (aka Anaboo) is battling cancer and her dream was to have a big Cinderella Party to celebrate her 4th birthday last weekend! The Hershey Kisses Mice & the Bags of Pumpkins were perfect favors to complete her party! Please keep her in your prayers as she starts another round of chemo this week!
Okay – I’m off to bed now… I’d love to hear if you’ll be making some Valentine’s Hershey Kisses Mice! Or maybe even making them for a Cinderella Party!
