Yikes! Someone Call Pest Control – Creepy Wall Silhouettes
Dear fellow mouse loving bloggers who have adorned your homes with these adorable mice silhouettes,
I admit it, I’ve been envious of your vermin. But, I knew I didn’t want to look all over town for those Martha Stewart mice silhouettes. So I thought I could buy them online. Low and behold, I stumbled across the tutorial to make your own! Thank you Martha. So, I downloaded the template here.
And, we set about cutting our own out of construction paper. I remembered that I had saved the excess chalkboard vinyl material from this Wallies set.
So, we used the excess to cut the mice and some other creepy critters I drew.
I’m sharing the template with you so you can make your own out of construction paper or if you happen to keep everything have some black vinyl laying around. (Simply click on the image below to view a larger size template.)
The boys had fun decorating.
I just adore how my boys are fearless of creepy crawlies (both wall art and the real deal.)
Anyone else not afraid of spiders? I don’t like them in my house (and I’ve been known to kill a black widow), but I recognize that they are necessary in my yard (NOT IN MY HOUSE!)
Cool! These would be great for Halloween. My friend works for http://www.domyownpestcontrol.com so I’m always prepared for pests… the real kind 🙂
very fun! I totally need a vinyl cutter for all these fun ideas! Thanks for Linking up to Topsy Turvy Tuesday's!
ooo, i love your mice and spiders! So cute. I may have to add some of those
Woohoo! I love those spiders!! I already have the mice around the fireplace – I can't wait to put up the spiders! Thanks for the download – that was so sweet.
Oh my goodness — I love the spiders hanging!! This is awesome! 🙂
We did the mice and some of our own bats, but I hadn't thought of spiders! Thanks for the idea!
What a great idea, but I don't think I'll be buying any for my home unless they have them in cute little kittens or bunnies. I am the poster right before you on Metamorphosis Monday and just wanted to drop in and say hi! It's very nice to meet you!

Mice and rats DEFINITELY scare me. Ugh. I'd scare myself if I put those on the wall! (;
This is so adorable! You used just enough and at the right places. Very effective, I would say.
Hi! I just found your blog again while visiting from Funky Junk's party.
I wanted to thank you because when I first started refinishing furniture, I had come across your blog and read your lovely little quote, "If a human can do it, than there is 95% chance that you can, too!" I can't tell you how many times I have reminded myself of that quote when I felt less than confident about a piece that I was working on! Thank you! I am your newest follower! 🙂
