Break off a small amount of clay (about the size of your fingernail) and mold it into a small half-circle.

Insert a toothpick into the clay half-circle.

Bake them in the oven at 250 °F for 10 minutes until hard.

When they have cooled, set them standing upright in a little clay. This makes them easy to paint.

Paint them in pretty toadstool colors.

When they have dried completely, use the back end of a paintbrush to stamp small white paint dots onto your toadstools.

  1. Oh so sweet. Thanks Donni for this tutorial. I think they would look very cute in a small planter as well. Love this space of yours! Have a beautiful day!

    • Hi Janet,
      Oh yes… they look so sweet anywhere. In fact, my daughter has put hers in our patio pot plant and now it looks like fairies have moved into that pot too :-)

  2. Donni,

    This is more of a love letter than a comment I think, but I hope it fits nicely into this little comment box. I love what you do. I love your blog and your shop. I have bought a variety of gorgeous items from the shop and will continue to do so as need arises (there is always desire to buy every little thing, but that would not be very practical). Your pictures and tutorials remind me to search for the magic and whimsy in everyday life. It reminds me to help my son search for and create his own tiny and magical world. Thank you so much for what you do!

    • Hi Molly,
      This is one of the most special messages I have ever received. You have made me smile from ear to ear. Thank you so much for the beautiful encouragement and kind words. I’m a happy chappy today :-)
      Blessings and magic to you,
      Donni
