We love making fairy houses. My girls have made many fairy houses over the years. When we visit parks we like to leave houses, built from twigs and leaves, behind. Every spring we build fairy houses for our garden. This fall I thought it might be fun to build a fairy house jack-o-lantern. After all, fairies need a place to rest on Halloween night.
With a little planning, we transformed a little pumpkin into a beautiful home – fit for any fairy to enjoy. I started off opening and emptying the pumpkin. I cut out a circle from the bottom of the pumpkin and emptied the seeds and pulp from the bottom of the pumpkin. This was my first time trying this technique and it was a very easy way to empty the pumpkin. Once emptied, we got to work drawing our plan on the pumpkin.
So, will you be inviting fairies into your garden this Halloween?
