DIY Terra Cotta Garden Mushrooms Materials:

Terra Cotta Pot with matching Bottom (any size works!)
White All Purpose Paint
Red Paint
E6000® Craft Adhesive If you live in a wet area, you may want to use Marine Goop. It is listed as a “totally weatherproof adhesive and sealant”, and I agree with that assessment!
Art Palette or Paper Plate
Foam Paint Brush
Small Paint Brush

DIY Terra Cotta Garden Mushrooms Directions:

• Cover your work area in case of spills.
• Squirt several tablespoons of red paint onto an art palette or paper plate.
• Using a foam paint brush, paint your terra cotta pots and bottoms with your red paint and let dry completely (these dry super fast).

Note: Read glue directions before beginning this portion of the project. You want to be in a well ventilated area, and cover the surface of the bench or table before applying. If you use the marine goop make sure you cover your surface before applying. I use a plastic topped folding table, and Hubby is always crabbing that I leave behind blobs of glue (hey, I can peel it off… eventually).
• Once the terra cotta pot and bottom are dry, place a little glue around the bottom of the terra cotta pots and press the bottom onto the top to look like a mushroom.

  1. These are so cute! I can’t wait to make some. We have a little fairy garden that needs fixing up & this would be a perfect addition.

  2. These are the cutest little mushrooms. I love crafting with terra cotta pots.

  3. These are so adorable and fun. So easy to make too. So glad you shared with us at Merry Monday. I’ll be sharing these on my FB page.

  4. I’ve seen these and thought about making them a few times, but I always come back to: little butts will be sitting on them! There is no way I’d be able to keep my young kids off them.

  5. These are adorable!! My kids would love to make them, and they would look great in the garden. Thanks for sharing on Inspire Me Monday. Have a wonderful weekend!!

  6. Beautiful, nice and simple. I think I will gather some old pots I have sitting around and get to work. I think. I won’t even need to bother with the glue. Thank you Ann!
