Fairy Mushroom Ornament

Fairy Mushroom Ornament

The end is almost in sight for this year’s ornament making. This latest creation is for my mother-in-law who has a small Christmas tree in her kitchen dedicated to fairies.

I didn’t realize before making this that there is an actual fairy tale toadstool that has a red cap. Hopefully my erroneous choice of color isn’t too large of a faux paus.

I attached an assortment of beads to the top in a random manner to make it look spotted and speckled.

Now it is all boxed up and ready to be wrapped for giving on Christmas Day. (Hopefully my assumption that she doesn’t avidly follow this blog isn’t too far off the mark… If I’m wrong, sorry to ruin the surprise, Susan!)

    A fairy Christmas tree is a lovely idea, and your beautiful mushroom should fit right in. Don’t worry about the color, it’s magic, after all!

      🙂 I was figuring in a world of fairies, which is heavily steeped in fancy and imagination I might find some leniency when it comes to color selection.

    Commenting on behalf of my wife, she simply said that “that is so beautiful!” and I agree, lovely!
