I was at the dollar tree today, and as I was scoping out the aisles for ideas, I saw this plastic bowl.
I instantly thought of a mushroom. I then came upon this
These together looked like a mushroom! If your children are making this, use plastic. I did have Rustoleum Red Spray paint, brown spray paint with metallic in it. I used Acrylic paint on this, because I knew I was going to put a clear coat spray that seals and protects. If you don’t want to apply a sealer, then be sure to use outdoor paint. Anyway…I sprayed the bowl then the vase.
When the bowl was dry, I took a pounce and dipped it into the white acrylic paint then onto the bowl, randomly.
I cleaned it up a bit…the white…then applied another coat of the white circles. It was easy to do with the sponge pounce.
I used ‘Goop’ multipurpose glue. It would be better if I used Goop Marine glue, but I didn’t have it on hand.
You could use a branch for the bottom, but that might have a problem with water.
Thank You For Looking….Enjoy!
Suggested materials for this project:

I love creating new ideas. And now that I am happily retired, I have lots more time to create them! Whether its crafts for decorating my home, or up cycling items I find at garage sales, thrift stores, and even on the curb, and turning them into something wonderful.
The creative juices flowing in my head are almost always in overdrive....so many ideas! I love sharing my new ideas with all of you! So please follow me and let me know how I'm doing! I hope I can inspire you.....and if I do....send me a pic. I would love to see your creation.
