Create little mushrooms for your fairy garden with a DIY tutorial for all ages!

Make a little springtime magic with the kids by creating these sweet fairytale-like mushrooms for your potted plants or yard.

Pebble 2

Here’s what you’ll need to make your own:

Pebble 3

To begin, give your pebbles a base coat of paint.  Let dry.

Pebble 4

Give another coat of paint, if needed, to cover your pebble.  Let dry, then add spots or other designs.  Let dry again.

Pebble 5

Paint your sticks whatever color you want your mushroom stems to be, and let them dry.  Then, using your nippers, cut them into shorter lengths.  Be sure to make them an inch or more longer than you want your stem to be, so you have some stick to push into the ground to make your mushroom stand up.

Pebble 6

Use a sizeable dab of E6000 to adhere your stems to the bottom of your pebble mushroom cap.  Prop up, stick side up in a cup, can, or with a ball of tinfoil as a base, until they dry.  If you are planning on using your mushrooms for outside decorating, I suggest spraying them with a couple of coats of clear acrylic coating to weatherproof them.

Finally, go put your cute little pebble mushrooms in your flowerbeds, fairy garden, or in a potted plant in the house.

Use bigger and smaller pebbles and sticks to make fairy mushrooms of all sizes to add some whimsical charm to your springtime garden!

Happy Crafting!
