Acorn Toadstools

 My husband was driving up in the mountains the other day and saw some of the trees were beginning to change color! Fall is quickly approaching, and I'm excited because it's one of my favorite seasons to decorate for! I love using natural elements in my fall decorating and I love little details. This project is fun, simple, and so cute!

Supplies needed:
Acorn tops
Hot glue gun and glue
Cotton balls
Optional: paint

Glue a tuft of cotton into the inside of the acorn top. Into the center of that, glue your little twig use the clippers to shorten your twig if necessary. Once the glue is dry, blow on the cotton or gently brush it with your fingers so it flares out up and around the acorn mushroom top.

At this point, your mushroom could be finished if you want it to stay natural. You could also pull out some paints to decorate it. I plan to use inexpensive acrylic paints to make the mushroom/acorn top red then paint little white dots.

Once you're done with your mushroom, have fun decorating with it! Try making a mushroom "terrarium" in a little glass jar, or gather a few together with string in a tiny mushroom bouquet. I think little red mushrooms will look especially cute in a fairy garden, maybe even with a little glittery fairy dust. There are so many fun possibilities!
How will you use your acorn mushrooms?
