About This Class

149aaca0

Using some simple supplies, I will show you how to make these delicate, glittery toadstools.

They can be used as Christmas tree decorations, sweet little notions to attach to a gift or used as a decor accent - I hang mine all year round on some twinkly lights in my studio.

Materials

Styrofoam eggs or balls

Rolls of crepe paper in whichever colors you like ( I use pink, white and blue)

Wire for the stems

Scissors

Pliers (for cutting the wire and bending the wire loops)

Knife and cutting mat

Old paintbrush for applying the glue mixture

White glue

Jar with lid for glue mixture

Styrofoam plates

Waxed paper 

Glitter....and more glitter....did I mention glitter?....
