Mouse Necklace

Make a mouse necklace for you and one for your friend too!

Step-by-step tutorial

  • Step 1

    Pick a color of thread and 3 washers (found in the hardware department). Two of the washers are the same size and the other one is larger than the two. Find a size that works for you, but make sure they aren't too small to wrap the thread around and lace it through.

  • Step 2

    To start, cut a long piece of thread and tie it onto a washer.

  • Step 3

    Wrap thread around the edge of the washer and back through the middle. Continue to wrap the thread until the washer is totally covered.

  • Step 4

    If you run out of thread before it is all covered, tie another piece onto it and continue to wrap. When you get to the end, tie and knot the thread in the back. If there is a loose end of thread, use a small dot of glue to secure it into place. Wrap all 3 washers with the thread. Depending on your child's age, this may be all done in one sitting or it may be a project to come back to each day until it is finished. Now cut a piece of wire (found in the beading section of a craft store) about 4 inches long.

    Use the wire to attach your mouse ears. Each piece of wire wraps around the 2 washers and secures them into place.
