Toadstool Time

Sorry for not posting in a while, but I am back again with another D.I.Y. here's what I made:





And here's how I did it:



Step one: Grab a bowl, a cup of flour, a cup of water, Glad Wrap, glue, old newspaper, plain white paper, your base (mine was a minnie bowl and tubey thing), red glitter(optional), white and red paint(white not in picture sorry!) a paint brush and scissors.


Step two: Cover your base items in Glad Wrap. We will be doing paper mache so this will keep the items clean.


Step three: Add the flour and water to the bowl and stir with your paint brush.


                                                   
                                            Step four: Rip or cut up strips of newspaper.



 

Step five: Dip the strips of newspaper in the paper mache mix. and stick them onto your base items, you will need to do quite a lot of layers to make it thick enough. To make painting it easier I did the last few layers in white paper. 

  

                       Step six: leave it to dry (it may take a while) and pull the base out from the paper mache.




  
                                                                  Step seven: Paint the top of the toadstool red



 
                           Step eight: Lightly sprinkle the top of your toadstool with red glitter, and leave it to dry.



   

Step nine: Cut out some spots.




     

              Step ten: Paint the bottom of the toadstool in white


     
Step eleven: Put the top bit of the toadstool on to top of the bottom bit of toadstool and stick on the spots.


      
Step twelve: Draw some grass, a door and a window on the toadstool. Then it's done!
