How to Make Mosiac Garden Mushrooms to Decorate Your Gardens

Mosaic Mushrooms For the Garden

Make your own toadstool mushrooms for the garden using a few recycled items from around the house.  Use a vase, bowl, Quikrete cement and decorative pieces of glass or broken plates.

Cement n Mosaic Mushrooms


Encase an old glass floral vase with an even layer of quikrete that has been tinted with a buff color concrete colorant. Let dry.

Place a small amount of quikrete in the inside, middle of the bowl and attach it to the floral vase which is acting as the mushroom base.

Spread small amounts of quikrete around on the outside of the bowl in an even spread.  Work in small squares of quikrete.  Spread the quikcrete and press your glass, broken plates, rocks or whatever you desire into the top of the mushroom.

Let the entire mushroom dry and set out in your garden.

Happy Gardening!
