What’s a Woodland theme without a terrarium?

Mushroom terrarium tutorial materials

You will need:

  • round glass vase (or similar)
  • wooden plugs (or small knobs)
  • faux moss (available from some craft stores and floristry supply wholesalers)
  • red and white paint
  • paintbrushes


Mushroom terrarium tutorial

1. Paint the ’stalk’ and underside of the plugs white.

2. Paint the top of the plug red.

3. Using a fine brush, dab on white paint dots to the top of the ‘mushroom’.

4. Place a layer of moss into the vase.

5. Arrange the mushrooms in the moss.

6. Continue until all mushrooms have been placed in the moss.

I kept it simple with just the mushrooms, but you can add whatever you like (I think a little toy deer would look particularly cute).
