Determine layout by turning the pots upside down and begin stacking the saucers upside down on top of the pots. Stack the saucers from largest to smallest at the very top.
Once happy with the placement, decide on the color for each mushroom and then separate the saucers so they don’t get mixed up while painting.
Apply a coat of white multi-surface paint to all of the pots using the largest paintbrush.
Paint the inside of the pots as well to seal all surfaces of the terracotta clay. Let the paint dry fully before applying a second coat of paint and add as many coats of paint as needed until desired coverage is achieved.
Paint the saucers in different multi-surface paints. Let the paint dry fully before applying a second coat of paint and add as many coats of paint as needed until desired coverage is achieved.
Once dry, stack the saucers by color to form mushroom tops and paint white polka-dots in varying sizes all over. Apply a second coat for better coverage.
Turn the now painted pots upside down and begin assembling the mushrooms. Working quickly, apply hot glue between each layer of pot and saucers until the toadstool mushroom is formed. Gently press the pieces together as the glue dries. Repeat for remaining terracotta pot mushrooms.
