* Fairy Pumpkin Houses


If you've been reading my blog for sometime,
you'll know that last Christmas my
sweet hubby and I built a fairy house for our girls.

My dad is also a crafty fellow and
helped us out by building some small
twig furniture and a
tiny well for their drinking water.

He decided the girls needed some
fall pumpkin houses for their fairy land.


Each of the girls got her own custom
mini-pumpkin house
(made from an artificial pumpkin)
and a battery operated tea light
to add a cozy glow.


They love them
and so does their grateful mama.

We are lucky girls.

Oh, wow - these are too precious! Very, very cool. We have a more typical bird-house version of a fairy house. We may have to expand on our fairy domicile with such a cool idea!

OK, these are INCREDIBLE! How much fun your girls must have with them. Teeny tiny furniture gives me a thrill, too!

hi there,

I brought my pumpkins home from Michael's today and want to get started on making these little houses...so cute!!! Can you give me any tips on how you did the furniture, or point me in the direction of one of your previous posts...?

Hi Kristen!

I'm so glad you're going to give pumpkin house making a try!! I think my dad cut the top off the pumpkin and the door and window holes with one of those plastic pumpkin carving knives you can buy at Halloween. As far as the door, stairs,window cross bars and furniture we just use small twigs collected from the backyard with hot glue (glue gun) or craft glue. It's just a matter of trial and error.

Good luck and please send me pictures when you're done!!

Fondly,
pink and green mama MaryLea
