How to Make a Super Mario Mushroom




About: Hiya. I like macrame, cats, dogs, horror movies, making things, breaking things, cake pops & music. I am home schooled due to chronic illness, so if I don't come on here much that is why.

Hey Everyone,

I made this cute Super Mario Mushroom out of Polymer clay (I used Fimo) He was very easy to make although I do recommend some experience in polymer clay. You can make him into charm to go on your phone or bag, make him into a necklace, charm bracelet- anything you like, it would make a great gift for a Gamer (or yourself ;] )
If anybody would like a step by step tutorial, please let me know!

You will need:
Red / green polymer clay (for the cap of the mushroom)
White Polymer clay (for the spots, highlights and body of the mushroom)
Black polymer clay (for the eyes)

-If you wish to make him into a charm you will also need:
Head pin / eyepin
Jump ring
Charm attachment

You can get all the materials from any good craft store or online. I got mine from eBay.
If you do make him please post some pictures!

    I think he's joking. That's a computer rendered image if I am correct.

    Yep, sure. I am hoping to do a step-by-step tutorial on it this week but I am having a rough time at the moment health-wise.
    I will just inbox you the instructions today. =]

    Neon, that's very cool. I would love if you posted the steps for making this (it doesn't look that complicated, but maybe explaining how you attached the chain would be helpful!).

    Thank-you very much, means a lot to me :]
    Yeah sure, I'll try and do one asap :3
    It is very easy- attaching the charm attachment is a little tricky but once you get the hang of it it's very easy ^_^

    I love mushrooms ;)) - they turn into really cute things(toys and so on). I've never worked with polymer clay, maybe someday i'll give it a try, but i've done some mushrooms with the crochet :D
    Yours is really tiny and cute:)!!

    Well i donno if you you'll find it easy to crochet.. sometimes it's easy sometimes it is hard.. It depends on the size of the hook and yarn. if you are working with a small hook it would be not that easy. I like very much to crochet, so even if it's harder sometimes, i won't give up.

    I know a great japanese site that has some tutorials but i donno if it is ok to put a link here:) so i'll send you a private mess.- it would help you to learn stiches and models... (and has some patterns in english too).
