10 Craft Ideas To Do With Mushroom Coloring Pages

Here are 10 affordable, fun, and creative craft ideas you can do with your completed coloring page!

10. Book Covers

For small books that need a little jazzing up (or protection from normal wear/tear and dust), turn my mushroom pictures into adorable covers.

To do this, you will need to resize the illustrations by copying/pasting them out of the PDF and into a word processor document whose orientation is set to landscape.

Place the picture on the right-hand side and leave about an inch margin around the three edges (top, bottom, and right).

Print it off and color it in, then turn the page over so that the picture is face-down (it should be on the left now).

Line up the book you want to cover with the page and mark where the top and bottom lie. Then fold the page, top and bottom, along those lines.

You should have created flaps that you can slide the book’s front and back into.

9. Bunting Room Décor 

For a groovy sunroom, bedroom, or even sylvan-themed nursery, pick out five or six mushrooms, color them in, and cut them out.

You’re going to poke holes in the top and then take a long piece of string or thread and, one by one, tie them all together with about four or five inches of space between each mushroom.

Then you can tack or tape the bunting up on the wall.

8. Decorative Plates

For this craft, you will need cheap, non-plastic plates that you can find at the dollar store, as well as Mod Podge.

You might want to resize the mushroom of your choice so that it fits the plate or so that you can fit multiple mushrooms on the surface.

Color them in and cut them out, and then you’re going to Mod Podge the mushroom(s) to the plate, applying a few coats at least.

Let it dry completely, and then use it to collect keys near your front door or jewelry in your bedroom.

But remember – the plates are not food safe!

7. Garden Mushrooms

This is a cute craft that you can make with your kids – all you need are popsicle sticks and glue.

You’ll have your kids color in just the caps of the mushrooms and then cut them out, carefully going around the stems.

Next, they’ll glue popsicle sticks – one or two will do – to the backs of the caps so that there is plenty of popsicle sticks left below.

Then they can stick the popsicle sticks into the soil in your garden or even into your planters inside for a touch of whimsy.


To make bookmarks, you will need to pick mushrooms that are either on the smaller side or that you have resized to about four to six inches.

You’ll print them off and have your kids color them in and cut them out.

Then you can either place a few on a rectangle of construction paper or you can place the mushroom figures against cardstock and trace them.

Then you’ll cut out the outline and paste the two pieces together, creating a more reinforced bookmark.

5. Layered Mushrooms

For this craft, you’ll pick out three or four mushrooms that you want to use and have your kids color them in and cut them out, along with leaves, flowers, or even bits of grass.

Then you’ll start to layer the pieces – the bits of leaves first, then a mushroom or two, flowers, another mushroom, etc. Just lay it out so that things overlap but are evenly distributed throughout.

You could even take a small piece of construction paper and fold it up a few times like an accordion and use that to glue the mushrooms to the page, giving them a 3D effect.

4. Toilet Paper Roll Mushroom Gardens

First, get a cardboard box that is wider than it is tall and cut the flaps off.

Then you’re going to pick out some mushroom caps, color them in, and cut them out.

You’ll paste the caps to the top of the toilet paper rolls (that are vertical) and then glue the toilet paper rolls to the bottom of the box.

You can add green felt for grass, rocks, leaves, and even sticks to fill out your garden!

3. All About Mushrooms Booklets

Mushrooms – and fungi – are fascinating organisms, so have your kids research and write down some facts.

They can put it directly on the page and color in the pictures, then bind the pages together to create a booklet.

2. Mushroom Paintings

Get your kids in some clothes you don’t mind them getting dirty, and sit them down at a table for a painting activity.

Give them washable paints and paintbrushes, and let them “color in” my mushroom pictures to their hearts’ content!

When they’re done, they would make the perfect wall or fridge hangings!

1. Paper Plate Mushrooms

You can use both large and small paper plates for this activity, but if you’re using the small ones, you might want to resize some of the mushrooms before printing them out.

Basically, the paper plates are going to serve as frames for the mushrooms, so your kids can decorate them however they want.

They can color in the rim, use glitter glue on it, glue down sequins – whatever they want.

They’ll then color in and cut out a mushroom (or two or three!), center it in the middle of the plate, and glue it down.

Once the plates are totally dry, you can hang them up.
