Really enjoyed making the summer themed fairy garden a few months ago, so I decided I wanted to make one for fall. I found half pumpkins at Michael's Crafts and knew that'd be perfect to hold the garden.
I put more oasis in the bottom, which was hard to cut to fit in the curves. Then I tucked a bunch of moss around it and stuffed a coloured leaf vine around the edges.
The house is made from another toilet paper roll, but I wanted to make it wider so I sliced up the side and then added a bit of a paper towel roll inside. First I put the door on, then it took about a week to add all the stones because they had to dry before the next row. The roof was also time consuming. The leaves didn't want to cooperate being glued onto a cone shape! Plus I had to use fabric glue which has awful fumes. The yellow marble in the acorn cap is supposed to be an outside light. I also couldn't get the house to balance very well on the moss so I covered a mason jar lid with flatter moss and then glued that to the moss in the pumpkin, and glued the house to the lid. It's a little sturdier.
Pilfered that tree from my decorations that I put out on top of the little bookcase. I made the fence from craft sticks and large skewer/toothpicks. I did a grey paint wash on them and also on the pieces I used for the door. The bundle of firewood is out of focus, but they are twigs from my yard.

Now I am going to have to make a winter and spring garden as well!
