I saw these and fell in love with them. I just recently found some wooden bowls hiding in my garage! Isn't it amazing what you can find if you have a clean out!!
Last year we got a massive grapefruit tree taken out of the backyard. The tree was chopped up into firewood so I grabbed a few logs and nailed the wooden bowls onto the grapefruit logs. There was one big one and 4 little ones.
Then I got the kids to work ....
First they painted (orange of course!)
They did about 4 coats before it was orange enough for our liking.
Then they added the spots
Hmmm how many spots do toadstools have anyway???
And then we let them dry. We finished them over a day.
The finished product looked awesome! The kids and I were VERY happy with them.
The problem of how they were going to stick into the ground securely was solved with drilled holes, liquid nails and wooden garden stakes. I put one stake in each of the small ones and 3 in the big one and then pressed them into the ground.
They are pretty sturdy and look awesome! This is the bones of the fairy garden corner I am in the process of making .. any suggestions of what to plant I'm all ears!!!
Check out how I inspired my friend Jennie to make some toadstools HERE. They are such a cute and easy little project!!
