Halloween is approaching quickly, but there is still time to get creative and make your own Halloween themed fairy garden. That’s right, a spooky, pumpkin fairy garden perfect for a little witch or wizard. Hey, everyone! It’s Kara from A Kailo Chic Life and today I will share a few simple tricks for creating your own Halloween fairy garden using supplies from Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores.
To make my pumpkin I used several items from around the store. JOANN has a wonderful selection of faux pumpkins, so I selected a large black one to hold my witch’s house and the garden. From there I found several small Halloween fairy garden miniatures as well as a Halloween paper house kit. Add in a mini wood fence, multi-colored moss, a few jewelry charms (available in-stores), black glitter, and a string of purple or gold fairy lights and I was well on my way to crafting the spookiest fairy garden ever.
Once you have all your supplies, cut open your faux, carve-able pumpkin using a foam cutting knife. Then use spray adhesive and black glitter to coat the inside with glitter and then let the glue dry.
While the glitter sets, begin assembling your mini witch. I used one of these doll pendants along with some black felt and a mini spider jewelry charm (available in-stores) for the hat. I got the face from another Halloween charm set. Then just glue it all together to create your cute little “fairy” witch.
Now that the glue and glitter have set, cut a piece of the pumpkin that you removed to form a “hill” and prop it up with scrap paper.
Use small mini birch wood rounds (available in-stores), hot glue, and the moss to create steps leading up to the top of the hill.
For the house on top of the hill, I used one of the houses from this paper stack and cut off the back. Then I placed purple fairy lights behind the house to light it up and placed a black spider web jewelry charm over the window.
Now that you have the base, it is just a matter of creating your own fairy home however you like and adding in fun details like this cauldron with glitter filled vials,
Floating ghosts (from the paper house kit),
and spider web covered trees.
I hope this tutorial inspires you to get creative with your own Halloween fairy garden. How fun would this be out on your porch instead of a Jack O’ Lantern on Halloween.
