DIY: Mushrooms

Make little mushrooms out of acorn caps and twigs for various decorations or even a necklace.

  • Acorn caps (how ever big or small you desire)
  • Twigs and short branches or various sizes
  • Cotton balls
  • Glue
  • Optional: string for a necklace
Directions: Use the acorn tops as the caps of the mushrooms. Add a dab of glue and a bit of cotton to the inside of the cap. Attach the "stem" (twig) to the cotton. If you desire, you can string the mushroom onto a necklace by gluing it or drilling holes in the acorn not previous to construction. I used these little guys in the potted plants in my room. They are an easy way to add cute mushrooms without worrying about spore or allergies.

I found this tutorial on a crafting website, though I cannot remember which at this moment.
