1 x 50g ball of Scheepjes Cahlista in the following colours: red (115), brown (157), green (389), white (106). 1 (possibly 2, dependent on the size of your tin) X 50g ball of beige (404)

Plus extra scrap colours for flowers and the edging of the door. (I chose pink, yellow, blue and dark brown for the door)

You can find more info on the yarn used over on this blog post, with direct links to yarn stores where you can purchase the same yarn that I used with the simple click of your mouse.


I used a 3.5mm hook in order to keep my stitches tight, avoiding glimpses of the tin through my stitches.

Polystyrene Hemisphere

I used a 15cm in diameter polystyrene half sphere as a base for my toadstool cap, these can be found easily online or at most craft stores.


You’ll need a cylinder container/ tin with a lid. Mine was approximately 15cm tall and had a diameter of 8.5 cm. This projects works best if the lid sits plush to the main body of the cylinder (no overhang from the lid).
