Looking For Cute Mushroom Decor? Make a DIY Mushroom Plant Stand
Do you want to get high on shrooms? Well, you’re going to love today’s episode. Mushroom decor is everywhere at the moment, so this week we’re jumping on the trend by making a DIY mushroom plant stand.
Tools and materials:
- 2 Dollar store cups (different heights)
- 2 Dollar store bowls for the mushroom caps
- Acetone (optional)
- Colored spraypaint
- Circle stickers
- Painter’s tape
- Wax paper
- Brown paint
- Dotting tools
- E6000 glue
- White paint (optional)
All you need for this lazy-girl DIY are some bowls and cups from the Dollar Store, plus a bit of glue and paint. Let’s get started!
1. Sand the cups
First, lightly sand the cups and bowls with sandpaper.
2. Spray with primer
Next, spray the cups and bowls with a white paint primer.
Ok, so this cup came with French phrases and images on it, and it was very difficult to cover up. What I should have done was remove the design with acetone first before spraying.
3. Place the dots
To give the mushroom caps their signature spot pattern, I cut out circles with painter's tape and stuck them on wax paper, then stuck them on my caps. I did the same with some bubble stickers for an irregular design.
4. Spray color
Then, spray paint the caps in your chosen colors. I’ve gone for pink and yellow. The pink is actually graffiti paint because I couldn’t find a good pink in regular paint.
5. Add a design to the bases
I’m going to keep the mushroom bases white, but I’m adding some brown paint with a dotting tool for a speckled effect.
Let all the paint dry.
6. Peel off the stickers
Now it’s time to peel off the stickers and reveal the white dots underneath. How satisfying is this?
Some of the paint did come off when I peeled the stickers back, so I just touched them up with white house paint.
7. Glue the base to the cap
Applying E6000 glue to the bottom of the cup, then stick it to the center of the bowl, as shown.
