It still feels a little early for Halloween decorating, but these little vinyl mice silhouettes are just so cute I couldn’t resist!
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!
This little guy is trying to escape the couch and get back down to the mouse hole on the floor. 🙂
These guys are just chillin’, hangin’ out! (I realize this is a lot of photos for such a simple craft, BUT THEY’RE SO CUTE!)
I think they’re pretty cute, and they’re perfect for Halloween!

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!

I definitely did a double take for about two days after I put these up! But I’m getting used to them now!
This is really cute, I would love it if you linked this with Show Your Stuff:
So much fun! I totally want some.
So so cute!!!
OK. That’s it. I totally need a silhouette, like, right now! These are adorable!
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 🙂

Can I just say these are brilliant????
Jessi Wohlwend says
Thanks Angie! I had a lot of fun picking out mice and placing them around the couch!

This is too cute! I’d love for you to link it up at my link party, DIY Weekend!
See you there!
Miranda @ Mr. and Mrs. Winslett
What a cute idea, Jessi! I think there might be a mouse infestation coming at my house! Thanks for the patterns.

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!
