Cut a small piece of string pearl (enough to go around Mrs. Mouse’s middle). Glue the ends together, allow to dry. Then dab a small amount of glue on the front and the 2 sides of the pearl string on the body – allow to dry.

Glue 3 red small pompoms on Mr. Mouse’s top (front) and 3 white pompoms on Mrs. Mouse’s top (front). Position the last pompom on the string pearl for Mrs. Mouse. Allow to dry.
TIP: Glue the first pompom a little below the head – allow room for the scarf for both.

With black embroidery floss, embroider the nose and mouth for Mr. Mouse and with pink embroidery floss, embroider the nose and mouth for Mrs. Mouse.

Blush:
Using a cotton swab, apply a small amount of blush on the inside of the ears and the cheeks for Mr. & Mrs. Mouse.
TIP: I used regular face blush.

Wrap red scarf around Mr. Mouse and white scarf around Mrs. Mouse. Tie to the side to allow the pompoms to show.

Mr. & Mrs. Mouse are done to adorn your holidays! Measures approximately 4-1/2” tall, not including bow or hat.

Happy Crocheting!
