Picture of Making a Cement Mushroom Fairy House

In this instructable I show you how to make a mushroom fairy house using mainly a cement. It’s fun to make and you can use it as an awesome decoration indoor or in your garden. Generally, this type of project is done with modelling clay, I took the initiative to do it with cement to produce a robust, non-fragile and water-resistant decorative piece

Step 1: Making the Basic Shape

To build the basic shape of my house, I mainly use aluminum foil. I start by wrapping a small ball of aluminum foil, and then I gradually cover it by making several layers until reaching the desired shape. To glue both parts, use the hot glue gun.

Thanks !
This is awesome. Thank you this instructable. I have been inspired to create more shapes with foil as a base. But I'm still not sure what "compress" is. Is it a gauze wrap? Could I use some sort of quilt batting instead? I have plenty of that.

Yes, it's gauze wrap, I'm not sure it can work with quilt batting.

This is absolutely incredible!! I've got to grab some cement and gauze to do one myself.This is so inspiring, my mind is swirling with different ideas to do up. Any specifics about what cement to look for?

Thanks for your interest ! that's portland cement.
Oh, cool! What did you mix it with?
Creative D2H (author)  SheGeek21 days ago
The best mixture : 2cup cement + 1cup sand + water
They should be paying you a commission; your work is truly inspiring! I'm so excited to try playing around with cement!

Great video and will try this to add to a garden I want to create. However I cannot find any information about adding the second “roof” underneath the main roof. Any steps omitted?

Thank you for your interest ! you're right, this step is not very clear. you can see the attached photos taken from one of my other projects that can help you better understand the realization of the second roof.
What is the time frame for constructing the house? Did you make all the additions on the same day so the new concrete would adhere to the basic structure?

This project took me almost 4 days of work. it is necessary to wait for each step to dry. it is necessary to wet the surface before adding the new cement layers.
Also, what is sparadrap? I have never heard of it in the US.
Wonderful project and an incredible paint job!!

Sorry, I mean "Compress". I already corrected the error, thanks for the remark
