Happy Halloween! Pumpkin coach and needle felted rabbit sculpture

Halloween is almost here, and so I thought I’d modify a project I’ve been working on to show some holiday spirit! This pumpkin carriage is ready to find Cinderella for her ball, but will happily transport you as well…

I made the entire thing from scratch (except the body of the pumpkin and frame around the door, so I’m excited to see it done. I have the complete explanation of how I made it on my site, which you can find HERE.

The colors look different with different backgrounds…

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!
