15 Minute Halloween Decorations: Vinyl Mice Silhouettes!

Have you guys heard of Craft Lightning? A bunch of bloggers share crafts that take 15 minutes or less to complete, and this week’s theme is Halloween decorations, so of course I jumped at the chance to participate!

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!

You can check out all of the other Craft Lightning Halloween crafts this week at either The Country Chic Cottage or 30 Minute Crafts.

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!

  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!
