These magic mushrooms make cute decorations. All you need is a paper-based egg carton, paint, and glue. This is a great all-ages craft.

Total Time: 1 hour plus dry time


  • 1 egg carton
  • scissors
  • red and white paint
  • paintbrushes
  • hot glue gun with glue


  1. Cut out the little cups from your egg carton.
  2. I like to cut out the little separator bits to use as smaller mushrooms.

  4. Press in some of the harder edges of the cups to shape into mushroom caps.
  5. Paint all the caps red. Let dry.
  6. Add white spots. Let dry.
  7. To make the mushroom stems, cut long strips out of the rest of the carton.
  8. Tightly roll up a strip. Cut it when you have the desired thickness for the stem.

  10. Add some hot glue to the end so it does not unravel.
  11. Add some hot glue to the top of one stem end so you can attach it the cap.
  12. Insert into a mushroom cap and hold it into place for 10 seconds.
  13. Repeat with the rest.
