Garden Mushrooms Using Old Wood Salad Bowls and Plastic Glasses


What can I say about this project. It's perfect for kids to do, and requires just a few supplies. The hardest part was shopping thrift stores for the wooden salad bowls and plastic tumblers. The total cost to make was less than $5, as I already had the paints and glue. I've made them both in multi colors and all red groupings. I like groupings of 3, but I'm sure you can use as many or as few as you like.

These are so easy, and fast. You just need spraypaint and glue. I cut different sized circles out of a kitchen sponge for the spots on the mushrooms.

Spray painted the mushroom caps. Left the inside of the bowls paint free for better glue adhesion.

Mushroom stems spray painted. I kept the bottoms of the glasses paint free so they'd adhere better to the bowls. I used E6000 adhesive glue to stick them together and voila! So super simple.
