Easy Mushroom Garland Tutorial by Julia B.







Materials needed:



- Assorted color felt squares
- Glue gun
-Cotton string (aprox. 56”)
-Paper, pencil and cardboard



To start:

Draw out your mushroom cap and stem. If you are not to handy with that, a google search will give you quiet a few free templates you can use. Trace your design onto cardboard, and cut out on each cap, base, as

Trace 2 of each mushroom cap and base, per mushroom. You can use different colors, or all of one. It is up to you.



Trace your mushroom spots. I used 1 ½” and ¾” circles. The amount you need to cut, depends on how many or few spot’s you want on your mushrooms, mine have between 9-10 each total, front and back.



Arrange and glue your spots, and glue together your mushroom stem.



Next, glue your stem to bottom center of back-side of one of the mushrooms. Glue mushroom cap in place, leaving a small opening at the top.



Trim any excess felt, and pull away those pesky little glue threads as well J



Use a few pins to properly space your mushroom’s. sandwich the string, between the top of the mushrrom caps, and close up with a bit of glue.



All done!
