Sequin mushroom ornament.

Time for a mushroom CRAFT! YEAH!!!!! I'm not the only one with a hankering for all things fungi......so today is a great day to share someone else's craft!

First.......read on:

Legend has it that mushrooms are a good luck symbol associated with the nature and beauty of the forest. Finding a mushroom is considered to be very lucky and to mean good fortune is at hand. Mushroom ornaments are displayed on Christmas trees in Germany in honor of the people's reverence for nature and in hope of good luck in the New Year.

My family lived in Germany for 3 years when I was a child and we brought this tradition home to the States. We ALL have mushrooms on our Christmas trees now!

Here is an adorable mushroom ornament you can make for your own tree this year!
You've GOTTA love this one!!!!!!!



Claire gave me permission to show you her little creation and link back to her tutorial...that way, you can all have some good luck too.

How cute! I have pickles on my tree, but I'm thinking that I may need to start adding mushrooms too! :)
