Halloween crate

Fairies love this spooky time of year and I have made a Halloween crate for them to enjoy. It also happens to make a great talking-piece for a Halloween party. For an interesting take on a fairy house I bought a squash and found it a perfect fit for a fairy garden. I scooped out the centre and cut slits for the door and cut out a chunk for a window, which look brilliant when a light is placed inside.

The crate has been filled with stuffing and green tissue paper covers the top. Yellow reindeer moss looks good on top giving a splash of Autumn colour. Trees and other foliage have also been added to make the fairytale forest. Take a look at all our scenics and design your own landscape.

A fairy magic circle gives this crate a mystical feel. To make this, simply cut out a cardboard circle and cover with PVA glue (this drys clear) and scatter cork on the top, then stick a few small pebbles standing upright around the edge. The cork also works well to make an effective path. I cut a path out of cardboard and used the same technique as above.

A black cat, a crate of pumpkins and a troll from our Halloween collection completes this scene. Once Halloween has gone all these products can be recycled into other fairy scenes apart from the squash of course.
