I had thrifted a number of glass salt and pepper shakers a while back with every intention of making little needle felted mushroom terrariums out of them. One of the shakers reminded me of a mushroom stem and the rest is history.
I have made the dark brown mushroom cap with sweater felt, I further embellished the cap with a piece of brass zipper on the edge and white woolly spots. I used a small portion of thrifted bridal trim for the underside frill of the mushroom cap.
The mushroom cap can be unscrewed and removed from the shaker... you might like to take a wee peek into the glass shaker.
This particular terrarium has two red embroidered woolly mushrooms, a little pine cone and a piece of preserved turkey tail The base of the terrarium has been needle felted onto a base of green sweater felt. I always like to add a bit of seed beads for extra texture and interest.
The pincushion is approx. 4" tall and 3" wide.
Very charming and unexpected use of a recycled salt shaker.
This pincushion includes the little red acorn based flower pin.
