DIY Miniature Fairy Garden Terrarium – Enchanted Mushroom Lights

Hi, in this tutorial I made a fairy garden terrarium with mushroom lights and a fairy mushroom house. I used some extruded polystyrene (xps styrofoam), battery operated led lights, transparent sanitary silicone sealant, tin foil, copper wire, hot glue, a little bit of polymer clay, moss and acrylic paint. I also used a glass cake cover. Step 1: Preparing the Board

I first cut the styrofoam board to fit the glass cake cover. I adjusted the corners with a cutter, then I painted it black. Step 2: Adding the Lights

 

I then glued the lights to some pieces of copper wire. I made the wires in different lengths and also left more wire on the upper side (that will be helpful when making the mushroom caps). I glued the copper wires to the foam board with hot glue. I added some volume to the board using tin foil and hot glue.

Step 3: Making the Mushrooms

I mixed some red acrylic paint with silicone and made a paste. I applied the paste on the wires and leveled it using soap and water. For making the mushroom caps I used the silicone paste and wrapping foil. I applied some paste on the plastic foil and covered it. Then I started shaping it into a mushroom cap. For making the round shapes I used the cones inside of an eggs carton. I also covered the tinfoil base using the same silicone paste in black. Using some tin foil I made a cone and covered it with polymer clay. I sculpted a little house, baked it and painted it with acrylic paint.

Step 4: Moss and Details

I placed the moss over the board, carefully mixing the patches and used toothpicks to fix it in place. I also made some cute white dots on the house using white silicone.

I love the result!

How to make a burlap sunflower

Beautiful Sunflower pick for fall wreaths. You can make any color you like. I hope you have fun making this flower. Step 1: Required Material 

15″ of 5 1/2 wide burlap – color of your flower

5″ of 5 1/2 wide burlap – green for your leaves

Scrap piece of brown burlap for the center

Cutting mat

Decoupage

wide sponge brush

1 fine gauge wire

Scissors

Flower template mine came from http://www.freekidscrafts.com

I could not find a leaf template so I have included a picture of what I free hand cut

2 paper plates

one plastic rectangular bowl

Straight pins with the heads on them

Step 2: Decoupage

Pour about a half of a cup of your decoupage into the plastic bowl.

then pour enough water into the decoupage to make it thin. You will know it is thin enough when it drips off your brush.

Use your first paper plate and lay your burlap piece down and start brushing until you have covered the whole piece.

Place the piece on the clean paper plate and repeat. I did take another plate for the 6″ of the green burlap.

I let my dry overnight.

Step 3: Pin and Cut Flowers Out

You will need to cut your flower templates out. I downloaded the flowers and then resized them to 5″, 4″, and 3″.

Take your straight pins, I use the ones with the heads on them, and pin from the top of the peddles to the center.

Now a trick I use is to start with a paddle and cut around the top then do the same thing with each peddle until you have gone all the way around. I then turn over the paddle and cut the opposite side of each paddle. Look at the picture of the front and back of the peddles and you will see this gives you a clean cut.

Now take your pins out and you will be ready to assemble.

Step 4: Putting Your Flower Together

In the first picture you will see I am using my fingers to fold the flower in haft, I will do this on both sides of the flower to find the center.

Now stack each of your flowers and turn over to slide the wire through the center. If you do not want to use the flower for a pick skip this step and glue each one in the center.

Turn over and glue your center circle of brown burlap in the center.

Turn back over and lay your leaves, you can use as many or little as you like, to the back of the flower.

Glue the leaves on.

That is it and now you have your burlap flower as a pick or you can make and use on hats, headband, anything you like.

Hope you enjoyed this.
