Sharing is caring!

Dear fellow mouse loving bloggers who have adorned your homes with these adorable mice silhouettes,

I admit it, I’ve been envious of your vermin. But, I knew I didn’t want to look all over town for those Martha Stewart mice silhouettes. So I thought I could buy them online. Low and behold, I stumbled across the tutorial to make your own! Thank you Martha. So, I downloaded the template here.

And, we set about cutting our own out of construction paper. I remembered that I had saved the excess chalkboard vinyl material from this Wallies set.

So, we used the excess to cut the mice and some other creepy critters I drew.

I’m sharing the template with you so you can make your own out of construction paper or if you happen to keep everything have some black vinyl laying around. (Simply click on the image below to view a larger size template.)

The boys had fun decorating.

And they just love trying to pet the spiders.

I just adore how my boys are fearless of creepy crawlies (both wall art and the real deal.)

Anyone else not afraid of spiders? I don’t like them in my house (and I’ve been known to kill a black widow), but I recognize that they are necessary in my yard (NOT IN MY HOUSE!)

    I love them! Ok, I took the easy way out and purchased the mice and spiders, but know I can use the templates for the bats!

    This is such a cute idea! I have black vinyl coming next week that may just have to turn into a couple spiders. Came over from Tatertots and Jello.

    Brittany,
    Hi! I just found your blog again while visiting from Funky Junk's party.

    I wanted to thank you because when I first started refinishing furniture, I had come across your blog and read your lovely little quote, "If a human can do it, than there is 95% chance that you can, too!" I can't tell you how many times I have reminded myself of that quote when I felt less than confident about a piece that I was working on! Thank you! I am your newest follower! 🙂

    What a great idea, but I don't think I'll be buying any for my home unless they have them in cute little kittens or bunnies. I am the poster right before you on Metamorphosis Monday and just wanted to drop in and say hi! It's very nice to meet you!
