Recycling Craft - Cute Cork Mushrooms

This is a greart craft project for kids on a rainy and dreary fall afternoon. Depending on how many wine corks you have, they can create a whole patch of mushrooms that can be combined with straw and fall leaves to create a autumn scene.

 

 

Cork Mushrooms

For one cork mushroom you will need:

- wine cork
- 35 mm (about 1.4 inches) styrofoam ball
- craft paint in the colors of red, white and black (the mushrooms can also be painted with a beige bottom and brown top for a
  variety)
- white dimensional paint
- 1 pair of small wiggly eyes
- red half bead
- craft glue
- permanent marker
- red colored pencil

Ages 8 and older

Time required: about 2 hours

Instructions:

1. Parents should help cutting the styrofoam ball in half. 1 ball is enough to create 2 mushrooms.
2. Paint the wine corks white (or even beige) and the tops red or brown. Let paint dry and paint a second time if it did not coat properly the first time.
3. Glue the tops onto the mushrooms.
4. Glue on the wiggly eyes and nose. Draw a mouth with a permanent marker.
5. Dot the tops of the mushrooms with white dimensional paint.
