This minnie mouse craft is a fun, quick way to get started in the creative world of minnie-mouse crafts. You can follow along with the instructions to build a simple mouse, or you can go crazy and create a whole mouse with an array of parts and materials.
In this case, the mouse is a simple plastic toy that acts as a computer mouse. These days you can get a lot more expensive mouse parts, but it’s a great way to get started.
Minnie Mouse is known for its ability to make some of the most unique, one of a kind, and sometimes even hard to find toys. These time-limited creations are just that.
I have been a fan of the minnie mouse since I saw the first video on YouTube and I’ve been making them for years. The real minnie mouse is a different story, but still a great toy. If you have a lot of space in your toy chest and want to have a variety of different looks, you can build your own minnie mouse.
I guess I should say that my toy chest isn’t very large, but it includes a dozen or so minnie mice, plus various plastic dioramas such as the one with the giant bird eating a dog or the one with the little rabbit who is really a frog.
After I build my minnie mice, I get to decorate them. I can’t wait to paint them, and get to do some pretty minnie stuff.
So if you like minnie, just build a minnie mouse, and paint it. It really is that simple.
I get asked all the time how to paint minnie mice, and I hate to disappoint you. It’s not as easy as it sounds, but here are a half-dozen tips that should help you get started.
First, get a paint brush with a small handle. The brush will hold paint for a long time, and the bristles are not sharp enough to poke a hole in a board.
The next step is to get a paint brush holder that fits your brush. A lot of the paint brushes we use are made of plastics. These are not very sturdy, and don’t hold paint the way a bristled paint brush does. But, the plastic holder should be okay, though it does work out to be a little more expensive than you might have thought. Also, the plastic holder will not hold the paint the way a standard paintbrush holder would.
