Halloween in the fairy garden!

The leaves are turning colors and the air is getting crisp, it must mean that Halloween is one the way! To celebrate this spooky time of year, I’ve found the best Halloween themed listings for fairy gardens on Etsy, and put them together here. Come on in and see what’s brewing! (And don’t forget to click on each picture to be taken to the Etsy listing!)

First off are two adorable little kitties created by Alison at CupOCats! The kitties (both above and below) are so cute, and I can just see them lazing about in a miniature garden (waiting for miniature mice, no doubt).

Next is another character for your garden, an adorable little gnome sculpted from polymer clay by Michelle at Creative Cottage. This sweet gnome will keep your garden safe from Muggles and ghosts, and maybe even do some weeding!

While the gnome might keep the ghosts away,  he has welcomed in this baby troll artfully created by Amber at Trollflings. Who wouldn’t want those big brown eyes hanging around their garden?

On to the decorations! Of course we need lots of orange pumpkins in our fairy gardens, and Jessi at JessisArtStudio makes pumpkins that I just adore! Look at those swirly tendrils and the beads on each pumpkin…genius!

Jennifer at Gnome Woods knows how to make polymer clay behave, and here are two excellent specimens of Halloween themed mushrooms ready to join your fairy garden. They are too cute!

Speaking of cute, how about a spot of tea from these miniature teapot and cups in the shape of Halloween pumpkins?  Steph from StephtheFairyMaker has created the sweetest little set that will look great with all these autumn accessories!

And of course, we have to have snacks to go with that tea! Take a bite out of this yummy cake that Caylie from StudioPasat has made. I really want to make a full sized cake like this one now! Mmmm….I can just taste it!

And where will our little Halloween fairies live! In a pumpkin shaped house, of course! This beauty was created by ArtisticSpirit, and is so detailed for the size that it is!

Summer fun! A fairy garden camping trip ♥

Campfire miniature polymer clay marshmallow and hotdog by Gnome Woods

It’s time for our annual camping trip, so to celebrate, I’m putting together a collection of my favorite Etsy mini-camping-theme listings! I bet the fairies get away for a quick camping weekend just like we do, and of course, they need to bring all the essentials. Click on the picture of each listing to go to their Etsy shop, and don’t forget the bug spray!

First off we need s’mores, hot dogs, and a little fire to roast them on! Jennifer from Gnome Woods has artfully created a fire that will heat our little campsite nicely from polymer clay, complete with some extra firewood to go with it! The picture above and below were both created by Jennifer, and make me think of camping every time I see them!

Next, our fairy friends will need to decide where to stay… For the brave outdoor fairy, Sereny from Fairy Elements has created this summer-celebrating tent, complete with a tiny rug inside so our tiny friends can get back to nature. Sereny has lots of colors and styles to choose from, so every fairy can find a teepee just their style!

For the fairies that prefer “glamping” (Glamour+camping=Glamping!), Penny from Penny’s Pixie Planters has created the ultimate fairy garden getaway vehicle. Each camper is hand crafted from wood and metal, and so wonderfully detailed, I wonder if Penny employs a few fairies from time to time to help her in her shop???

Another choice for “Glamping” comes from Emily at Birch Tree Fairy. Each camper is delicately decorated with natural treasures, giving them a unique charm!

Now back to the food… As we said earlier, we need s’mores, and Pam at Landscapes in Miniatures has supplied our fairy friends with all the fixings! From the marshmallows to the chocolate, these miniatures are so perfectly detailed, they will make anyone who looks at your fairy campground want to cook some up!

Now if your fairies are short on time, and want to create their campsite quickly, this sweet little diorama will turn any miniature garden into a campsite in a flash. It was artfully created by the daughter of the shop owner at The Enchanted Acorn, and looks so sweet! This talented young artist has a good eye for detail!

If your fairies are feeling adventurous, they can always go on a short hike… Tatiana from Striped Box has created a miniature backpack that’s so realistic, it looks like I could wear it! Our little friends will definitely like this one!

If hiking isn’t to the fairies liking, they can always go out for a little evening canoe paddle. Faith at Rustic Blend offers a perfectly detailed little canoe that any fairy would trust to take out on the lake!

And finally, what would a camping trip be without a little wildlife? While I normally would want to avoid an encounter with a bear, this little cutie below created by Nicole at Nicole Lillian Ryan is just too cute! I’m sure our fairy friends would invite him to sit around the campfire and hand out mushrooms if they found him wandering in the forest!

August is halfway upon us, and camping is at it’s best! Remember to click on any of the pictures above to see more items in the artists’ shop, and enjoy the rest of your summer, wherever it takes you ♥
