    You can cut it with your hands too.

    of a leafless tree on brown cardstock,
    of the base of the fungus and some ghosts on white cardstock,
    of the mushroom hat on red cardstock.
  • - Cut out the shapes.
  • - Decorate the base of the mushroom transforming it into the front of a house with markers pens.
    I drew its door and balconies with very simple flowers.
  • - Draw mouth and eyes to your ghosts with a black marker pen.
  • - Highlight the nodes of the tree.
  • - Glue your shapes on black cardstock looking at the photos for more details.
  • - Cut out thin strips of brown Bristol board to move the ground in front of the house and glue.
