I made these for yrs. A walnut was the body. Using black acrylic paint and the end of the paintbrush dab black paint for the eyes. Using the fibers of a paint brush for the whiskers. Cut a triangle of red or green felt and sew th edges together. Trim with a roll of cotton around the bottom of the hat and attach a tiny jingle bell to the tip of the hat. Glue hat onto the walnut. Very easy to do. Sold these for 50 cents each or $5 a dozen.

I take a half shell hot glue 2 eyes on, cut 2 ears out of felt your color, a half of a rubber band for the tail, a tiny pompom for the nose. You can either put fun foam on the bottom than add a magnet or you can do everything except the fun foam & magnet. Take a yellow sponge and cut it diagonally (like a triangle) than glue mice on & a magnet on the side. Now you have a wedge of cheese with a mouse.
