As the leaves start to change colors and the air starts to cool the first thing that pops into my mind is my favorite holiday, Halloween. It is easy to begin thinking of spooky containers and haunted miniature accessories to add to a fairy garden. I love how this time of year seems mystical, but most of all I love decorating! I usually initiate decorating a little early, since I enjoy crafting most of my decorations and putting them together takes time. Prior to writing this article, I was busy painting some mini coffins and prepping my fairy houses that light up from within to add to my miniature garden that I will include in my front porch this year.

Slide3:

Last year I bought three bales of hay, fifty pumpkins, and ten dried corn stalks to decorate the background of my front porch. From there I suspended witch hats from the ceiling, in addition to black and orange ornaments hanging with fishing wire. My husband and I finished it off with lots of details that sparkled and glowed to entice eager trick or treaters. I am excited to take this experience, build on it this year, and add some miniature, fairy garden containers with small scenes to amuse my whole neighborhood.

Slide4:

I recently saw a unique and fun way to add a miniature garden to my front porch. My exciting plan is to use A PUMPKIN as a fairy garden container! I am going to carve a jack o’ lantern, add a plastic plant saucer stuck into the top of the pumpkin, weigh it down with soil, and finish it off by adding Halloween themed scenes. If you search for Halloween mini garden accessories, you will find “Happy Halloween” signs, fairies who appreciate the Halloween spirit, ghosts carrying trick or treat bags, and other spooky decorations you can use to dress up your fairy gardens. I love the idea of having tiny pumpkins nestled along a mysterious cobweb fence that frames the inside of a jack o’ lantern miniature garden.

Slide5:

Are you also looking for fall, fairy garden ideas? Create something a little simpler by using an existing miniature garden and dressing it up with Halloween decorations. Take away the current summer fairies, bright colored accessories, and outdoor summer trimmings (Save them for next summer.) and add autumn colors, bonfires and woodpiles, tombstones, and amusing Halloween themed ‘Trick or Treat’ signs. You could even stick to one theme throughout the entire garden and do a ‘Witch’ themed mini fairy garden. There are so many miniature fairy accessories available! Whatever all of us end up designing, we will spread ghoulish glee throughout our entire neighborhoods.
