👻 Halloween Fairy Garden DIY
Halloween Fairy Garden DIY
In today's DIY guide we will be creating a ever so popular fairy garden with a spooky twist. Today is Friday the 13th which means Halloween is right around the corner, so as part of my front porch Halloween decor, this fairy garden will take center stage.
- paint brush
- black paint
- googly eyes 👀
- cotton ball
- fairy garden figurines
- spooky plants
- sphagnum moss
- cacti mix
- plastic bag
- .tacky glue
1. I painted my toothpicks black and glued them together to form crosses.
2. I cleaned a few pebbles and glued googly 👀 onto them.
3.I used cardboard to cut out tombstones and a pathway and painted them black. I glued some green sand on them to add a pop of color.
4. I didn't have a black plastic bag at hand so I painted a regular grocery one black.
5.I lined my planter with the side that I painted black side down. I filled my planter with dirt and placed dry moss around the edges of the planter to give it a natural look.
6. I started off by placing my cardboard pathway, placed my haunted house and started to work my plants and props around them. The last thing I did was gently stretch out a cotton ball and placed it on top of the moss to make it look like cobwebs.
Side notes: Surprisingly I was able to fit all my handmade props and fairy garden figurines except for two tombstones. The end result was extremely satisfying. Being my fist fairy garden project I realized that I should of used a bigger planter to be able to spread it all out a bit more and to be able to add more plants. Other than that it was such a blast to put it all together. This was a great learning experience for me. I hope you enjoy my photos and mini tutorial.
