Toadstools and tutorials

For a while now I’ve been collecting toadstool tutorials.
So I thought I’d share.
The cute little guy above is found on The Storque by etsy.
This beauty is by LucyKate Crafts.This little cutie is from How About Orange . . .
This one requires no sewing skills at all – just a steady hand with a paring knife.
It’s a radish! Found here.

Now, you’re wondering what in the world Toadstools have to do with Halloween.
I give you Martha:

Is that the greatest or what? (And don’t miss the snail out of a cucumber!)
So if you were blessed with an abundant squash harvest this year, you too can create adorable, trendy, Halloween decorations!

Today is full of Halloween parades and class parties. Fortunately I didn’t have to pull an all-nighter on any costumes. They were all finished in time for a party at church on Wednesday night. It was kind of nice to have an early deadline to prevent last minute scrambling. But I have to admit, by Saturday night I will be ready for Halloween to be done.

PS – I haven’t had the chance yet to thank anyone personally for the great party food suggestions.
You folks really saved my bacon. Bless you cyber-friends!

    Toadstools were very popular in the 1960&#39;s. We used to have canisters with toadstool designs in our kitchen. So fun to see them coming back.<br />I hope you have a great Halloween.

    Your toadstools are precious but I must admit that radish one had me. I never would have guessed that it was a radish. Thanks for sharing.

    Love it, clever &amp; creative. Also, I like the idea of using fresh produce as decor because that means you can steam it/barbeque it/roast it later &amp; eat it instead of storing it to collect dust and take up space in the attic one more year. Sweet stuff! Happy Halloween!

    I love them. My MIL has photos from their mission in Stockholm with the real red ones and the white dots. I had no idea that they really grew like that.
