In this article, we will show you how to make a beautiful mushroom stool in mushroom shape for you to decorate your kids’ room, your garden or a birthday party!
Materials: The things you need to make your mushroom stool are given below:
- Fabric Glue
- Wood Log
- Sand Paper
- Wood Paint (White)
- Paint Brush
- Sand Paper
- MDF Board (Circle Shape)
- Staple Gun
- 3 Long Screws
- Drilling Machine
- Old Newspaper
- Foam Flat Sheet
- Cotton Fabric (white and red colours)
- Fabric Paint (white)
Let’s start with our today’s craft. Sand the wood log to remove splinters. Remove the dust and paint it with the white wood paint. Cut a circle in the red fabric about 30cm diameter larger than the MDF circle base. Then cut a circle in the white fabric about 1cm diameter smaller than the MDF circle base.
Apply the fabric glue on the MDF base, spread it in the centre and place the white circle fabric on it, letting the edges of the fabric unglued.
Place the MDF base on the wood log with the white fabric face down. Mark three points on the base forming a triangle e drill them with the drilling machine. Attach the screws with the screwdriver connecting the base and the wood log.
Knead the newspaper and tape it in the centre of the MDF base. It is important to let the newspaper very compressed and dense until the point that the volume of paper won’t reduce anymore, or after people seat the mushroom will lose the shape.
Cut the foam sheet in a circle and bevel the edges like in the picture.
Place the foam on the red fabric with the bevelled part up. Put the Log upside down and start stapling the red fabric in the MDF base. Be careful to let the white fabric out of the staple. Now use the fabric glue to glue stick the white fabric on the red one, covering the staples with it.
Mark where you want to draw the mushroom stains. Paint the circles with a small, flat brush and let them dry.
