Ok, I must admit, I really have no idea WHY I wanted to make these mushrooms other than the fact that they’re so CUTE! Lately I been wanting to stretch my creative genes and step out of the box to see if I could recreate something from what I saw on the internet. I’ve been seeing these cuties floating around the internet, some vintage from the 70s and a lot of recreations. So I thought, How could I make them without spending a ton of money . With some thought and trickery(just kidding but not really! Lol!), I came up with my own version and as to how I made it and maybe you’ll want to make some too!

I swear, it’s really very simple once I figured out the right type of materials to use. I wanted to try out 2 different ones but the concept was the same. I needed to cut out wood rounds that would act as a base for the top of the mushroom. I used 3 foam rounds to give it height, a sturdy cardboard concrete form that I got at my local hardware store along with rope and 2 different types of fabric. You can use any fabric you wish- I just wanted my colors to mimic the colors of mushrooms so I used felt and fleece. I also used batting as a base cover.
And there you have it! I will say that these mushroom are for decorative purposes only. They’re pretty sturdy but remember, the base IS made out of cardboard and I wouldn’t want anyone to hurt themselves. I hope you enjoy them as much I do. Let me know in the comments what you think!
So Until next Time,
