Supplies needed to make 1 DIY Cottagecore Mushroom Magnet
(Supplies may vary by store, however, special store-to-store orders can be placed with a one-week turnaround. Substitutions will be suggested if a product is no longer available.)
Small wood slices
SuperMoss Sheet Moss
E6000 Glue (or your favorite glue)
Protective Gloves (optional)
Step 1: Prepare Your Workspace
Before diving into the project, make sure you have a clean and well-lit workspace. Lay down some newspaper or a protective sheet to avoid any mess or damage to your working surface.
Step 2: Gather Your Supplies
Collect all the necessary materials mentioned above. Ensure that your wood slices are of a suitable size to accommodate the decorative mushrooms.
Step 3: Arrange the Moss
If using our SuperMoss sheet moss, you may need to trim it with scissors to fit the wood slice properly. Experiment with different arrangements until you find a design that appeals to you. Note: SuperMoss mosses have been dried and/or preserved. They are not alive. This makes them perfect for crafting projects like this one.
Step 4: Glue the Moss
Using your favorite glue (we used E6000 glue), carefully attach the moss to the wood slice. Apply a small amount of glue to the back of the moss and press it firmly onto the wood slice. Be cautious while handling the glue and consider wearing protective gloves if desired. Allow the glue to dry completely.
Step 5: Attach the Decorative Mushrooms
Now, it’s time to add some whimsical charm to your wood disk. Using the glue, attach the decorative mushrooms to the moss-covered wood slice. Be creative with your placement, and don’t be afraid to mix and match different types of mushrooms for a visually appealing result. Allow the glue to dry completely before proceeding.
Step 6: Attach the Magnets
Flip your wood disk over and place a small amount of super glue on the backside. Attach the magnets to the wood slice and press them firmly. Ensure the magnets are properly centered to maintain balance when displayed on metal surfaces such as refrigerators or magnetic boards. Allow the glue to dry thoroughly.
Step 7: Finishing Touches
Once the glue has completely dried, inspect your Mushroom Magnet Wood Disk for any loose parts or areas that may require extra adhesive. Make any necessary adjustments or additions to ensure the longevity of your craft.
Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced crafter, this DIY Cottagecore Mushroom Magnet project is a perfect way to explore your creativity. So go ahead, create a few more, and let your imagination run wild as you adorn your fridge or magnetic surface with these charming creations. Enjoy the process and have fun crafting!
