Felt Toadstool Mushroom

Don’t throw away those empty toilet paper rolls. They make perfect bases for toadstools. Add a half acrylic ball or even a styrofoam ball plus some felt and kids can make this fall decoration in under an hour.



Recycling Craft for Fall - Felt Mushroom

For this project you will need:

- 1 empty toilet paper roll
- 1/2 acrylic ball measuring 12 centimeters in diameter
Acrylic Ball and Toilet Paper Roll

- red, brown and white felt
- craft glue (hot glue works well but children will need parental assistance)

Recommended Ages: 9 and older

Time required: about 30 minutes


1. Cut a piece of brown felt that is the same height as the toilet paper roll and wide enough to completely wrap around the roll plus 2 centimeters overlap. Glue this piece onto the roll and set aside.
2. Cut a piece of red felt that is approximately 22-25 centimeters in diameter.
3. Brush glue onto the acrylic half ball and press the center of the red felt over the center of the ball. Smooth the felt down with your hands and pull the sides taut over the ball. You may wish to cut a couple of slits into the felt (picture below) to reduce the amount of wrinkles the felt will have. Then overlap these pieces over each other and press towards the inside of the ball where you will glue the ends.

4. Now cut a few white felt circles and glue these onto the mushroom. These are also good to cover up any unslightly wrinkles.
5. Now to glue the stump to the top, add glue to the top edge of the toilet paper roll and glue it inside of the mushroom. Let the glue dry completely.
