How to Make Mosiac Garden Mushrooms to Decorate Your Gardens

Cement n Mosaic Mushrooms by lyndalu_fla, The bases are bud vases, covered in tinted concrete, then use various items including bowls as molds for the caps.

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.

Encase an old 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!
