Supplies for Making Mushrooms for Your Fairy Garden
- Air dry clay
- Thin wooden dowel
- Orange and yellow paint
- Small paint brush
- Thin tip paint brush
- Sharp knife
- (optional) paper straws
Directions for Making Mushrooms for Your Fairy Garden
- Cut your dowel into 2 – 1 ½ inch pieces.
- Roll a small piece of clay into a ball, then place it on your knuckle to shape it into a mushroom cap.
- Gently push a piece of the dowel through the bottom of the mushroom cap, about halfway through it. Allow to dry overnight.
- Paint the bottom of the mushrooms a solid color using the small paint brush.
- Paint the top of the mushrooms a solid color using the small paint brush.
Pro Tip: Use paper straws inside of a small glass to help with this – put the dowel part of the mushroom into the straw to hold it while you paint!
- Once the paint dries, use the thin tipped paint brush to paint circles on the mushroom caps.
- Once they dry, place them into your fairy garden.
