Hershey’s Kiss Valentine’s Day Mouse Craft

Oriental Trading provided the kit for this post. Other items and all thoughts and opinions belong to Drugstore Divas.

mouseI don’t want a mouse in the house at all ever. But we have one right now. This adorably cute Hershey’s Kiss Valentine’s Day Mouse.

He’s just so cute.

Because you use glue on him, the Hershey’s Kisses actually become inedible, so I’m not saving him to eat. He’s just really cute to look at. And although I told Pete I would throw him away, I just can’t yet. He’s been sitting in our kitchen, looking all cute. I’m sure he’ll stick around until Valentine’s Day because, well, look at him.

Making this¬†Hershey’s Kiss Valentine’s Day Mouse Craft was so easy. You can order a Chocolate Kiss Mouse Valentine Craft Ornament Kit¬†from Oriental Trading. The kit comes with 12 full materials bags, plus an entire bag of Hershey’s Kisses. You;ll need 24 Kisses for the craft; the others are yours to eat. The ears and tail came with extra felt attached like the machine that cut them didn’t cut all the way through. No worries. Just use scissors to fix this.

The only thing you’ll need is glue. I ended up using wood glue for this, mostly because the glue gun I got for Christmas didn’t come with any glue (which seems like an oversight from the brand, if you ask me) and because I couldn’t find any white glue. Why we have wood glue handier than white glue in this apartment is a mystery to me. If you do use a hot glue gun, make sure to use that instead of allowing kids to. You don’t want them to get hurt accidentally.

Hershey’s Kiss Valentine’s Day Mouse

What You’ll Do:

Remove the tag from two Hershey’s Kisses. You don’t have to remove the entire tag, just any that is poking through the top.

Fold the pink ribbon in half and attach it to one of the Kisses.

Glue the other Hershey’s Kiss to the first one.
mouse-5

Glue the whiskers and nose onto the tip of one of the Kisses. Then, if you’re like me, you’ll watch it drip off. I imagine with a glue gun this would hold just fine, but with wood glue, it held for this photo and then completely fell off. So I removed it, took off the whiskers, put the nose back and moved on.

Glue on the eyes, ears, feet, and tail. Then let him sit and dry. After he sits for a little, your kids can pick him up and play with him. He’s actually a lot less fragile than the whiskers incident led me to believe he’d be.
