Okay everyone if you love to be outside and you love decorating your yard then this is going to be a must for you! I love decorating my yard and I love having lights everywhere. There are so many ways to add lights into your yard and garden and I think this DIY may be one of my favorite ways to add light to my yard!
I find myself in thrift stores all the time and I’m always picking up glass bowls and vases when I see them. Since I’ve gathered so many glass bowl and vases over time I knew I wanted to create something using solar lights and all of my glass vases and bowls. So that is what we are going to do!
The supplies you will need for this are:
1. Glass vase
2. Glass bowl
3. Solar light
4. E6000 glue
We will be making glass solar mushrooms which are so easy to make and you’re going to love them! The first thing is to decide where you’re going to be putting them in your yard. They look even more amazing if you add a group of them all together.
Once you find out where you’re going to put them in your yard you will need insert your solar light into the ground. I am using solar lights that I purchased from The Dollar Tree. You will start by inserting the pole of the solar light into the ground.
You will want your light to be low and flush to the ground. This is going to allow the base of your mushroom to fully light up.
Next, you will place your vase over the solar light. You will do this by placing the open end of your vase over the solar light.
Be sure that your vase is secure in the ground and level. Now you will place a good amount of the E6000 glue to the top of your vase.
The E6000 glue is what is going to secure the glass bowl to the vase. You will now place the glass bowl onto the vase.
You want to place the opening of the bowl onto the vase which is going to form the top of your mushroom.
You can make these mushrooms in a variety of sizes. I like using a variety of differnt size vases and bowls to form a cluster of glass mushrooms.
These are pretty in the day but amazing at night! Once the sun goes down you will have a cluster of the most beautiful glowing mushrooms!
These are so easy to make and are an amazing decoration to add to your yard. I hope you all enjoy this DIY and give it a try!
Love this idle going to put in my flower garden.
What a brilliant idea, absolutely love it. I will definitely be adding these to our garden in Scotland. Thanks so much

Great idea. I have the perfect spot in backyard for a few clusters. Thanks for all of your Awesome ideas Barb! Rhonda in Douglasville.

Barb, thank you for all the great crafting ideas. We usually don’t have at our Dollar Tree in Kansas some of the supplies you use for the crafts. I loved crafting in the past and used to sell my ideas. It is so much fun getting ideas from you and I just love your spunk. Take care and you and your family stay safe!!
Thank you for this darling idea! I can’t wait to shop our local Good Will for glass bowls. Thanks again!

Oh wow.. sweet lady. I noticed that one of the bowls on the mushroom lights goes with my depression dishes.. it is called the sandwich pattern.. great find.. look the dishes and you will know which bowl it is ..Sprinkling love your way..♥️♥️
If you want more light at the top, simply put your solar lights not as deep in the ground. Just be sure they will still get plenty of sunlight. Happy experimenting.
I luv this idea!!
I absolutely love this idea! I love it so much that I have made several of these and put in my flower beds. Thanks Barb for the idea
Stinking cute. 🤗✨✨ Love your lush for life and enthusiasm ✨✨✨
Keep em coming ✌️
Loving this idea!! Can’t wait to start shopping again so I can get started. Thanks Barb!! 💕
I love these. Cannot wait until our yard is all in to decorate it with my Shabby Tree crafts.
I have all my vases and bowls ready to make them ! However my vases are kind of tall !! Is that okay ? I mean will it look weird ?
So actually the whole black stem of the solar light needs to be pushed into the ground is that correct ? I apologize for being so dumb about this ! Lol
I have one in the front flower bed. Gluing a couple more tonight. May give one to my Mom. I bought sea green plastic at Dollar General. My landscaper isn’t too careful when mowing., LOL. I’m afraid the glass would be broken.
Love this DIY. So easy and pretty.
Thanks Barb! I can’t wait to add these cuties to my yard. Love love love them!! ♥️
Love love love this idea I’m going to make some of these and put in front of my house
I just made 4 can’t wait till the glue is set!!!!!!!Ihave my light ready to go!!!!

Thanks Barbara! You are such a delight! I’m gathering my supplies and can’t wait to make my lil mushroom cluster. I’ll then add a few glass flowers along with some real flowers. Maybe even a lamp bird bath or fountain. So excited!
Thanks for inspiring me. I live with chronic pain and I’m hoping this will help me keep my mind busy so it doesn’t consume me. Bless you, friend! 💗
