Christmas Tree Mouse Ornament

Thinking about Christmas always makes me feel crafty, even though I am not a super crafty person. I like to make new Christmas tree ornaments with the kids, and it's always nice when they are things I have on hand in the house anyways - since most of the time it is a spur of the moment idea. These cute wine cork mice are perfect to add to the tree!

I also think that home made gifts from children are perfect for grandparents, aunts, uncles and God-parents - which is why I am inlcuding this in the 2017 Gift Guide!

Wine Cork Mouse Ornament


  • Wine corks
  • Scissors
  • Rhinestones
  • Ribbon
  • Small jingle bell
  • Green sparkly pipe cleaner
  • Knife
  • Low temperature hot glue gun

  1. Begin by slicing off two thin circles from one wine cork, these will be the mouse’s ears.
  2. Hot glue the small circle slices to the top of the back of another wine cork, one off to each side.
  3. Glue two rhinestone eyes onto the front of the wine cork that you just glued the ears to, and another rhinestone for the nose.
  4. Twist a sparkly green pipe cleaner into a spiral shape.
  5. Attach the green spiral pipe cleaner to the back of the wine cork to serve as the tail for your mouse.
  6. Cut a small piece of ribbon and thread it through a small jingle bell. Tie the ribbon around the cork just under the nose of the mouse.
  7. Glue a small loop of twine to the back of the wine cork in between the ears, this will be the hanger for your mouse ornament. 


  1. Adorable, only problem is I don't drink but perhaps my son would gift me a cork eh?

  2. That is so cute and so easy to make. I'm going to show this to my daughter who loves doing crafts.
