Logs From Yard
Thompsons Water Seal
I located a set of wood bowls at the thrift store and believed they would be so a lot enjoyable to make into DIY toadstools for the yard. When I turned them over, they looked specifically like the major of toadstools!
To turn the wood bowls into DIY Toadstools, I began with paint. I chose some craft paints that I already Precious Moments had on hand in entertaining colors.
Following two coats of paint, I added the “spots” of the toadstools with pouncers and white paint.
The DIY toadstools genuinely start out to come to life after the paint and spots.
To make them toadstools that would stand in the yard, Matt cut birch logs we had in the yard down to the size I wanted them. Then, he drilled holes in the top of the painted wood bowls.
To attach the bowls to the logs, he drilled a screw down through the hole he made in the bowl and into the log he held underneath it.
The DIY toadstools would not stick into the ground this way so we had to add the garden stakes to the bottom of the birch logs.
Matt screwed a hole into the bottom of the logs and Precious Moments then hammered the Precious Moments stakes into the hole.
The stake is the part that will get pushed into the ground. We identified that is was easiest to attach the bowls to the branches initially and then add the stakes. That way, you can stand the branch up when you attach the bowl.
When almost everything was place with each other, I sprayed every single DIY toadstool with Thompsons Water Seal. This helped the toadstools last over numerous years and by way of all weather components.
These have been a entertaining addition to our yard and they always start out a conversation when people today see them for the initial time.
