15 Minute Halloween Decorations: Vinyl Mice Silhouettes!

It still feels a little early for Halloween decorating, but these little vinyl mice silhouettes are just so cute I couldn’t resist!

Cut out a few mice from black adhesive vinyl for a quick and easy Halloween decoration! (Includes free cutting file and PDF template for mice)

Plus they only took ten minutes to put together, win! Now we have little mice “climbing” all over our couch and I think it’s the perfect quick and easy Halloween decoration!

DIY Halloween Decorations: Vinyl Mice Silhouettes

You only need a few things and a few minutes to make your own vinyl mice:

  • black temporary adhesive vinyl
  • mice silhouette template (you can download mine below)
  • Silhouette Cameo (or scissors or a hobby knife)

The whole project is quick and easy, just cut out some mice silhouettes from your black vinyl, and stick them to a wall! If you like the mice I used, you can download the templates here:

I used my Cameo to cut out the mice, but you can easily do it by hand with a pair of scissors or a hobby knife.

I set our mice up so they’re climbing on the end of our couch, but they would be cute scurrying along a baseboard or running across stair risers as well!

Three little mice are hanging out on top of the couch, and one is down below thinking about climbing up.

The cats were super interested while I was attaching the vinyl to the wall, but a few minutes later they had totally lost interest. Puck clearly stinks at being a hunter…he’s not even fazed by the mice frolicking on the couch behind him!

  1. These are so stinkin’ cute and so much better than the real thing!! Wonder if my cats would be as cool and collected as Puck when these little guys made an appearance? Pinned!

  2. What a cute idea, Jessi! I think there might be a mouse infestation coming at my house! Thanks for the patterns.

    This is too cute! I’d love for you to link it up at my link party, DIY Weekend!


    See you there!

  4. Can I just say these are brilliant????

  5. I don’t know if I’d actually be able to stand having these next to me while watching TV… just a little creepy, but oh so cute! Love your rats…
    Hugs, antonella :-)

  6. OK. That’s it. I totally need a silhouette, like, right now! These are adorable!

  7. So so cute!!!

  8. So much fun! I totally want some.

  9. This is really cute, I would love it if you linked this with Show Your Stuff:

  10. Eek! If I put these up in my house, I’d probably double-take for the first two weeks, thinking they were REAL mice running around my house! HA!

  11. OMG- sooooo cute! I love it! I might have to try this for Halloween- it might scare my cat into being a better mouse catcher. lol

  12. Oh my goodness! These are hilarious and perfect for Halloween! I think my 19 month-old would never get used to them and constantly freak out thinking they’re real. But I love them! What a creative decoration idea!

  13. I love how these turned out, but wouldn’t let them in my house! They would send me into an anxiety attack in the middle of the night! What a great creative idea for Halloween!!

  14. This is the only kind of vermin I want to see in my house. 😀 These are SO cute! And your arrangement of them is great too … poor Puck, being taunted by the pretend mice! Thanks for sharing at Who Needs A Cape’s Super Sunday Link Party. Be sure to stop back for more linky fun!

  15. Slightly creepy but awesome! I love the one near the bottom with the little mouse hole next to it! :)

  16. These are adorable! I love how they turned out. But where on earth do I find the vinyl to make them? I have craft stores in the area. . . can I purchase it there?

  17. Those are so cute! I love it. Definitely pulling out the Cameo this week for sure.

    Thanks for linking up with the Pinworthy Projects Party.

  18. These are super cute! We don’t really celebrate Halloween, and I don’t have a Silhouette, but I will definitely cut these out by hand for my son’s room! :)

  19. I love the mice – so cute!! Haha – love the picture with your cat in the foreground. :) Thanks for linking up at Romance on a dime!!

  20. How cute! What a great way to decorate for Halloween. This would be great to link to Create It Thursday #23…it’s live now! Hope to see you there!

  21. These are absolutely adorable!! Thank you.

  22. I love these little mice. I am going to put them around my desk and filing cabinet at work. How fun will that be??

  23. I LOVE this! I couldn’t open the silhouette file, though, it said too many people had accessed it and wait 24 hours, so I did, and it still didn’t work. Any ideas? My boys will love this!
