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!

    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!

      Oh weird!!! It worked for me; the page says “There is no preview available” but the download button right below it still worked. If it’s still not working for you, send me an email at [email protected] and I will just email the file directly to you! Sorry it’s not working!

        I tried again today and it worked! Before it said something about it being downloaded too many times, or something? Thank you SO much! My boys are going to love these. Thanks for sharing.

    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! πŸ™‚

    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?

      Yeah he’s my favorite! He looks like he’s trying to figure out how to scurry up the side of the couch!

    This is the only kind of vermin I want to see in my house. πŸ˜€ 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!

      Thanks Sherry! I’m pretty sure after they were actually attached to the wall Puck stopped noticing them at all. He’s not a very good hunter… :-p

    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!!

    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!

    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!

    • Jessi Wohlwend says

      8 years ago

      I definitely did a double take for about two days after I put these up! But I’m getting used to them now!

    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…

    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!
