A trip to the thrift store with my daughter yielded supplies for a quick garden project.
Thrift stores never seem to lack glass vases and glass bowls.
I picked up 5 of each.
I gave them a wash in the dishwasher.
It was a really hot, humid day when I did this.
You can see the glass steamed up when it came outside from the cooler house.
I used some of Beacon's 527 glue.
I put the bowls on the driveway and ran a line of glue around the raised edge of the bottom of the vase.
Then I just set each one in the bowl and let them sit until they were dry.
It took mine about 4-6 hours before I actually took them in the garden for placement.
I would recommend over night or longer just to be sure.
You may wonder why on earth I glued the vases that way...
I have a good reason.
I don't want them to keep tipping over.
I took a piece of rebar and pounded it in the flower bed with a hammer.
I slipped the mushroom on and we are good to go.
Even a heavy rainstorm or small animals running by won't tip these mushrooms over.
This would be a super easy kid's craft.
You could even paint the glass with glass paints.
I wanted the subtle clear look this time.
Since I made 5, I have plenty to go around.
I added a piece of rebar to the planter in front of the garage.
And the mushroom perfectly fills a little space there.
You may already have everything you need at home for this quick project.
