Weekly Rat Facts: Rat Crafts

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.


  1. haha now that is very creative

  2. Bwaha that's kinda awesome Mary! Totally made me snort :)

  3. I think it's adorable. if you made the tale out of jute or a striped string it would be very "Martha." With the glittery tail it is a perfect holiday rat. My cats would be after that in no time at all. They will go after anything triangular or conic with a tail.

  4. Love this one! How cute!

  5. Ha! This is GREAT!! So cute.
