Fake Fungus


 Remember the terrarium I made? Well, one of my favorite parts of having one has been switching out the decorative items inside, and I'm always on the hunt for miniature animal figurines.

I decided to make some cute mushrooms to change things up, and I arranged them in a cluster to mimic how they grow in real life. You can paint these however you'd like, and make them as large or small as your terrarium will allow.

1. Mold your clay to desired stalk size/shape (the 'stipe' if you want to get nerdy).
2. Mold your mushroom cap to desired size/shape.
3. Attach the cap to the stalk and meld the clay together at the base where they join.
4. Poke a piece of wire through the bottom of the stalk (you will use this to stick in the dirt).
5. Bake according to packaging.
6. Once cooled, paint however you'd like.



A new mini-terrarium I made in a thrifted jar!

Lol, so cute! As a kid I found these little clay mushrooms my sister must have made. They had pipe cleaners in them instead of the wire. I put them on our Christmas tree that year and that made them official Christmas decorations ever since.

Can I tell you that I am always amazed at the things you make. Seriously, I would have assumed you just bought the mushrooms. Not that you handmade them. I guess that shows how lazy and uncreative I am!

Aww, they are so cute! They really stand out against your greenery!

So cute! I used to sculpt with Fimo dough growing up, I'd make beads, animals, etc. it was so much fun. I love how you used this clay to make these cute mushrooms.
