We rat people are cuckoo for just about anything to do with rats. We like rat statues, rat crafts, rat clocks ect. So it's no real surprise that I made a rat out of a pine cone and a few other supplies.
I found a slender, closed pine cone and painted it grey. Cut a couple of ears out of black felt and painted the inside pink and glued them onto the pine cone.
Next I used popsicle sticks to make the feet. I cut out what I thought looked like small feet and painted them grey with little back toes and glued them to the bottom of the pine cone. Then I glued a tiny ribbon to her head right by her ear and cut a silver pipe cleaner in half and hot glued it to the back of the pine cone. Then I took three black beads and glued them on as eyes and a nose.
My husband hates it but I think she's kinda cute.
