Halloween Countdown: Miniatures

My partner in the mini 13 Days Swap loves miniatures.  She has a doll house and a fairy garden.  I wanted to add some Halloween decor to her miniatures so here's what I made for her.

A simple banner for her fairy garden.  I punched star shapes out of Halloween themed scrapbook paper and glued it to some string and added some skewers so she could put it in the garden. 

A little rocking chair with a Halloween pillow.  I found the rocking chair at Joann's in the clearance bin.  It was already black and I thought it was perfect! I cross stitched a small jack-o-lantern pattern and turned it into a small pillow for the chair. 

A Halloween tree.  I also found this bottlebrush tree at Joann's.  I painted it using copper and orange acrylic paint.  I then strung some buttons on a silver sparkly pipe cleaner and added it so it looked like a garland on the tree. 

Then a small wreath with a witch shoe!

These were really simple but fun projects.  I see how easy it is to fall in love with creating miniature scenes.  You can really get lost creating little scenes. 

Stay tuned for more Halloween fun!

Y'all are having way too much fun with this stuff! If I ever got started on minis I know our house would ever get cleaned again!

I had so much fun making stuff for Pam. I can definitely see how one could fall off the deep end when crafting miniatures! :)
