Mushroom Yard Art
I've seen on the internet lately people making mushrooms out of cheap vases and crystal bowls.
Well, I got a few things at our local thrift store for a quarter each and made my own smaller versions.
I painted the tops white. I used a couple coats of acrylic paint, then spray painted on the top coat. Two of the 'tops' didn't have to be painted - the little enamelware cup and the glass custard bowl.
I glued them together. On line they say to use waterproof liquid silicone as a glue.
Here they are in my pitiful excuse of a flower garden in front of my porch. . .
and here are three more. . .
I know some of you may think they are kind of silly. But I think they are cute!
My favorite is the larger one in the top picture with the top knot on it.
You can do whatever your mind can imagine. Check for items around your house or go to a yard sale or thrift store for items. Buy the clear crystal items or the white ones. You could even use colorful ones for a whimsical look! Go small or go large.
Now all I need are a few little blue Smurfs to stand along side them.
