The other day, I was trolling my Instagram feed per usual, and I came across a design*sponge post with these beautiful, delicate mushrooms, which they said were made from paper.
And I thought, 'No way."
Come to find out, it's all about the paper. Kate is using crepe paper for the mushroom cap, honeycomb paper for texture and a straw to support the stem. While it still seems like a delicate fingered activity, it no longer seems impossible.
The design is from The Cobra Lily, which specializes in the construction of paper flowers and plants.
If you want to give it a go, her full mushroom making tutorial is available on Design*Sponge here.
