This month’s craft collection theme is a magical fairy garden! And every fairy garden needs some mushrooms, right? Designed by Krista, this adorable paper mushroom luminary makes cute decor for a kid’s bedroom or birthday party.

Due to the intricate window details, we recommend using a cutting machine with our SVG file for this craft project. Or you can always cut the template by hand with a detail knife.

Mushroom Kingdom

Our pattern for this paper mushroom luminary includes three different sizes. If you’re using them for a birthday celebration or garden party, you can spread them across your table along with some papercut woodland creatures. Or you can cluster them together to create a cute centerpiece. 

Once you’re drafting crafting your mushrooms, you can turn them into luminaries by adding an LED tea light inside. Another fun option is to string multi-colored fairy lights around them, which makes them feel a little more magical! 

Skill level: Beginner
