2. Then make a simple bow to top the teardrop and bring a burst of coordinating color. You can watch our bow-making video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pZd-fqaQJ2I&ab_channel=Bronner%27sCHRISTmasWonderland. (Because I was making a smaller bow, I eliminated the second/top row of loops that Amanda demonstrates in the video. You can certainly adapt this tutorial to your specific needs.)

3. Finally, hang the completed teardrop on a wall or door.

By all means, I love this mushroom wall decor. To begin with, it’s easily assembled. Second, it looks great year-round. You can simply change out the bow/ribbon for autumn, etc. And lastly, every part of it can be repurposed at any time since the ornaments clip on the teardrop.
