The mushrooms are (obviously) made from small sticks and acorn tops and are glued to a small stone. To make the "grass," I cut up small bits of green hemp, unraveled them, then cut them up some more!

Thank you! It took me a while to figure out what to do for the moss/grass. I tried adding different shades of green paint with different texture sponges and brushes, but it didn't look quite right. I got the idea to use the hemp when I was watching my cat play with a small piece of it on the floor Smiley
