Painted Mushrooms for Spring

 Here is a super easy mushroom project made from Target Dollar Spot finds. 

Truth be told, I'm just giving the mushrooms a little makeover today. 

I needed these cuties to match my house so I'm repainting them to add to my mushroom collection centerpiece. 

Take a look...

It all began with this cute little mushroom garden I made recently

I really love making mushrooms for some reason. They remind me of an early Spring day.

Today I'm starting with these cute mushrooms that just needed a quick makeover, they were just not the right colors for me.

I'm using Fusion Mineral Paint in Raw Silk and Bayberry. The Raw Silk color reminds me so much of a mushroom color with it's grey undertones.

I gave the mushrooms a quick coat of the white-ish paint leaving the original stem color because it works!

I painted 2 of the mushrooms in the Raw Silk and one in the Bayberry green. They needed about 2 coats.

When the paint dried I used the back of a pencil eraser to dab on dots in the contrasting color.

That is about all I needed to do to transform these cute mushrooms into mushrooms that match my decor.

I'm adding them to my wooden table centerpiece and early Spring decor.

These wooden mushrooms have been around for a while. I am not sure what their original use was.
