Did you see the cute little red and white mushrooms in my terrariums that I made? They were super easy to make. I can show you how and this will only take a second.
- Wooden dowel rod or stick
- Acorn tops
- KILZ spray primer
- Red spray paint (Rustoleum Apple Red)
- E-6000 glue
- Small round brush
- White acrylic paint
Mark the height you want your mushrooms to be on the dowel rod. Add 1/2″ to the height for anchoring it into the soil. Cut your dowel rod (or a branch in a pinch.)
Spray your cut dowel rods (or branches) with spray primer. Be sure to coat all sides. Spray the acorn caps at the same time.
Spray paint your acorn caps red.
After the paint has dried, glue the acorn tops to the dowel rods using E-6000 glue.
Let the glue harden (about 30 minutes.) Add some dots of white paint onto the red caps.
Press your adorable little mushroom into the soil in your terrarium and then sit and wait for a fairy to move in.
See, I told you it would only take a second! Well, besides waiting for the paint to dry, this project takes less than five minutes.
I have a mushroom leftover, but I don’t have any more terrariums. Any ideas what I can do with a little lone mushroom?
UPrinting.com Giveaway Winner
I have to tell you that I really enjoyed reading all your comments on the UPrinting giveaway. Some of you had some amazing photos that you really wanted to have printed. And some of you brought tears to my eyes when reading about photos of loved ones who have passed on. You made me think about both my grandmothers who passed away over 5 years ago and who I still miss almost daily. I wish I had a photo canvas for each and everyone of you. If you didn’t win, I really hope you will look into having your photo printed as a rolled canvas and stretch it yourself to save money. Your photos are too precious not to! (Oh, don’t make me cry again.)
We do have ourselves a winner of the UPrinting.com rolled canvas! And she has a special photo in mind.
