Halloween Fairy Garden

I made a spring fairy garden.....a fall fairy garden.....and now a Halloween fairy garden.    Should I made a Christmas fairy garden?...of course,  I should!     This is my first year to make a Halloween fairy garden and I am hoping to add some pieces to it for next year.   I really need a Halloween fairy!

Those little fairy garden pieces are pretty pricey,   so this year I went to the Dollar Tree to see what they had to put a Halloween fairy garden together in a hurry for! 

I used my big bread dough trough as the container for my fairy garden.    

I found these cute skeleton's at Dollar Tree.    There were several of them on a garland,  so I cute them "loose" and scattered them around the garden.

The Dollar Tree also had little cardboard houses that I thought would work well in my garden.

The houses have a different scene on each side,   so if you turn them just right,   each one will make a different house....

I used the big castle that was in my spring and fall garden to make a "Haunted Castle"    I already had the arched gate,  big book,   and curved stone fence,  but the rest are from Dollar Tree.

This little ceramic house is Dollar Tree as are the scarey creatures around the garden.    

My birdhouse condo sits next to the fairy garden,  so I gave it a few touches of Halloween.     The Ghostly Greetings sign  at the top was purchased several years ago at Dollar Tree..

The black birds also came from Dollar Tree.....

The Happy Haunting sign and the black furry owls.....Dollar Tree!

As you can see thru the door in the sun room,   it is still pretty and green here in Eastern New Mexico.    Not any sign of a frost in the near future ( according to the weather channel)

Left is the spring fairy garden......................right is the fall fairy garden

The container for the spring and fall fairy garden was an old guitar case.

I added lights to my Halloween fairy garden.

I ordered my lights from Amazon....$17 (tax and shipping included) plus I had them on my porch in a couple of days.     The lights are super tiny and are strung on a thin copper wire.     You don't really have to worry about hiding the tiny copper wire and it  will bend anywhere!   I love them!

See how the lights will stay where ever you put them with no support?

Have a safe and Happy Halloween!
