Crafts, Fun & Easy DIY


I was at the dollar tree today, and as I was scoping out the aisles for ideas, I saw this plastic bowl.
Difficulty: Easy

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!

      1. There are so many fruit and veg. farmers in this area. I love seeing them selling the fresh produce right out of the back of their pickup. Fresh and delicious. It’s nice to know your food is coming to you locally grown.

      1. Be sure to use the clear primer first. I have some chairs I did this with and they are perfect after 2 years in the 115 degree summers. I would love to see your before and after pics!
