The day we created our Picket Fence Fairy Garden, I knew we were going to need some teeny-tiny accessories to add the right amount of magical whimsy. However, seeing as how expensive these accessories can be (like this Miniature Garden Bridge, which is freaking adorable. But at almost $40, it’s more than I spent on the entire garden. C’mon now…), I decided to make my own.
One of the first items I created were these mushrooms, which were the perfect size – and better yet, they were free because I already had everything on hand! Ha!! Take that overly-adorable-I-could-cry fairy garden bridge!!
I was too
lazy busy to go buy some red acrylic paint, so I used a bit of deep red nail polish instead. Like I said, using what I have on hand. Actually, I’m pleasantly surprised, because the nail polish has held up really well, maybe even better than paint would have. In fact, you probably don’t even need to use sealant if you don’t want.
Push your mushrooms into cork, foam board, or even a sanding pad so they’re standing straight up. It should look almost like a little mushroom forest.
