Make It // Wood Mushrooms

This is my first Make It of 2012! I'm going to show you how to make 
cute little wood mushrooms! They are easy to make and look adorable on bookshelves.
We like to call them bookshelf enhancers. 
Let's get started!
You will need:
wood candle cup (available in craft stores)
wood split ball (available in craft stores)
White paint marker
paint brush
acrylic paint
1. First we are going to glue the split ball to the candle cup. 
Let it dry for a few minutes. 
2. Get your acrylic paint and start painting the top of your mushroom.
Let it dry and add a second coat. 
3. After the paint is dry it's time to add dots to the mushroom top
with your paint marker.
That's it! We're done! So simple and speedy to make. 
These little guys are ready to look cute on your shelves! 

Happy Making!
