Spring into the library and grab a bloomin' good book

By Karin Klenner
Karin from Regent College WA sent in this exceptionally creative display and I love the humour in the wording. Thank you so much for sharing it.
This is how she made it:
'The mushrooms were shaped out of chicken wire and then wrapped with fabric and glued onto a base. The mushroom tops were light shades cut in half, (from 'Thingz' or 'Ikea') with fabric spots glued onto them. (I had to strengthen the lampshades down the inside seams with cardboard and double sided tape.) The flowers were just made from crepe and tissue paper. The wording simply says "Spring up to the library and grab a bloomin' good book." The display is set up reception area.'
