I love to use old primitive looking things that I find, in my garden. This was found on the side of the road and I thought it looked like a flower, so I added it to my garden and throughout the summer, I started placing little flowers around it. I like unusual things in my garden, things, others might just throw away.
Make a mushroom cap out of concrete poured into a small plastic bowl, dried and cover it will broken plate "tiles" and grout! Pour concrete into a plastic ice tea cup and make the stem. Let dry, remove plastic cup, seal with glue and water, cover with tiles. Wait a day and grout. Place mushroom cap on top of the base. You''ll have an inexpensive and whimsical garden decoration. The picture is just of the completed top.
