This Fairy Theme DIY Toadstool project was submitted by Heather Hicks, who is a member of our Home and DIY Facebook group. Can you believe these toadstools are made from tyres? This might be one of the best recycling outdoor projects I have seen yet!

I am so in love with toadstools! There is just something so magical about them. When I decorated my sons Dr Seuss playroom, I created a chalkboard table with toadstools to add in that whimsical element.

Enough about me though, lets get to Heather’s tutorial.  I think you’ll be surprised at just how easy these are to make – provided you have the tree trunks and tyres laying around of course!

How to:

The first thing you need to do is attach the piece of plywood to the tyre. I did this by screwing the plywood to the edges of the top of the tyre using the electric screw driver. I screwed in 8 screws around the plywood to ensure it was secure.

Next I placed the tree trunk to the center of the plywood and tyre and screwed directly into the stump. This was to attach the trunk to the tyre.

To the top of the plywood I added the sofa cushion. I spray painted adhesive glue to keep the cushion in place.

Cut your fabric to the size needed to cover the entire cushion with some extra to staple in place.  Next lay out fabric upside down and place toadstool upside down.

Tug the fabric round the tyre, fold and staple with staple gun. Keep doing this until you have a completely covered tyre.

And thats it! I recommend to people who are gonna try this to use heavy duty vinyl I couldn’t afford it at this time so I just used a cheap dollar store table cloth and they don’t hold up under little bums

    Your toadstool idea is so cute, and I can’t believe that they are made with tires! I definitely think that it would be a great idea to make some sort of toadstool forest in my front yard for Halloween for all of the children to play around. I could easily get my hands on some old tires and I think that I could get some tree trunks from the mountains by cutting up fallen trees.
