Make a mushroom wreath with moss for Spring.  You can customize the mushroom colors to your preferences.

This is a 2 step process.  First we make the mushrooms and then we assemble the wreath.

Mushroom Supplies

-  DAS Air Dry Clay – E6000 – 220 grit sandpaper – Craft paints in any colors you choose.  – Craft paint brushes  – A few Q-tips – Mod Podge, matte clear finish – Painters tape 

Wreath Supplies

- Straw wreath form - Scissors -Hot glue gun & glue sticks -Natural Easter grass -Reindeer moss

Make the Mushrooms

Use air dry clay to create mushroom caps and stems

Let your clay mushrooms dry for 3 days.

Assemble Mushrooms

Wait 24 hours for the glue to dry. Use tape to hold the stems in place.

Glue the dried clay stems on to the mushroom caps.

Paint the Mushrooms

Use craft paint to paint the mushrooms . Put them in the oven at 185 degrees  for 15 minutes to accelerate drying time.

Esch mushroom will require 2-3 coats of paint.

Paint the Mushrooms

Use a Q Tip to put dots on the mushroom caps.

You can paint dots  on the mushroom caps if you have a steady hand.

Seal the Clay Mushrooms

Seal the mushrooms with a clear coat - I used Mod Podge. This is important if your wreath will be  hung up outside.

Assemble the Wreath

Use scissors to make a 1 inch hole in the straw. Use hot glue to secure your mushrooms in the holes.

Assemble the Wreath

Hot glue natural grass and reindeer moss to the wreath form, around the mushrooms.

Use twine to hang up your wreath!

This is how the mushroom wreath will look when you are done! You can customize the mushrooms to any colors you like.
