Making Mini Toadstools for an Enchanted Forest Party

I am organising an Enchanted Forest Party for our daughters 2nd birthday next month and to try and save some money on it I have been making a lot of the decorations myself.

The first thing I’ve been working on are toadstools for the tables and I thought I’d share with you how I made them.

Step One

For the tops I used little plastic pots that originally had jelly and fruit in for the kids you can get them in most big supermarkets, any rounded bottom plastic pot will do.

Step Two

I ripped up some newspaper and started to paper mache on the pots. I used 3/4 pva glue to 1/4 water.
Don’t forget to do the last layer in white paper, so that when you paint it the newspaper pattern doesn’t show through.

 Step Three

When the pots are dry (I waited until the following evening) the next step is to paint your pots red, you may need two coats.
After this get a toilet roll and stick white paper to it, this will be your base. (I used pritt stick for this).

Step Four

Glue your base to your pot (I used PVA for this). The final stage left is to add your spots. I cut out circles from white paper and just glued them on with pritt stick.

and voila… mini toadstools.
