The mushroom birds that we use are of the utmost quality. They are constructed from large “shelf” mushrooms that grow on old forest tree trunks. Their bodies are formed with thin sheets of mushroom or tuberous root fibers, which in a decoupage-like fashion, are molded around a foam form. Small natural pieces of mushroom, bark or feathers are used to create wings and tails, while natural seeds or beads are inserted to form eyes. The birds are finally painted in watercolors with a touch of acrylics to resemble true species. Decorative “Designer colored” birds are created in the same manner.
Our Mushroom Bird Ornaments are handcrafted with only the finest materials available. Natural components such as cinnamon sticks, unique pods or cones are used to give each piece a “woodsy” flair. Artificial florals, greens, and ribbons are professionally incorporated to compliment or contrast the overall design with color and texture. Subtle hints of the finest pot-pourri oils are used to give the ornaments aromatic value.
