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!
