Upcycled Egg DIY Fairy Garden Mushrooms
Wait until you see how easy this is, guys. The supplies you need for this activity you most likely already have around the house. If not, I will show you where to find them.
– assorted plastic eggs, any color or size (there are several to choose from on Amazon here)
– wood craft sticks or regular twigs from your yard (find them on Amazon for just a few bucks)
– hot glue, glue gun
1. Start by taking the eggs apart. You will only need one half for each mushroom you make.
2. You can either cut or break your stems to size. I just bent ours to break them so our mushrooms would be various sizes.
3. Add a generous dab of glue to the end of your wood stick. Be very generous.
4. Press the piece of wood to the inside of the egg. Hold it in place until it is secure.
Did you get that? Because that is all there is! Once the wood sticks are in place, you can start pressing the opposite end of the stick into your garden. You can add them to regular gardens, fairy gardens, or even stick them in house plants.
Even if the glue doesn’t hold the stick to the egg perfectly, you will find that the egg still balances nicely on the stick. The glue just gives some extra reinforcement which is nice.
Did I tell you we are putting these everywhere? With so many kinds of plastic eggs out there, just think about all of the different kinds of mushrooms you can make. Heck, you could even use real eggshells, you know, the dyed ones from your Easter eggs. There are no rules here.
These seem to be pretty durable outdoors, but do expect some wear and tear from heavy sun and rain. If you are worried, just use your Upcycled Egg DIY Fairy Garden Mushrooms in your houseplants. This way you can look at them all year long. Any complaints?
