Something Wicked This Way Comes

Some children have grown up with a house in their neighborhood that was surrounded by mystery; stories and rumors circulated about the home or the inhabitants. For my fairy garden this time of year, I am inspired by the abandoned and boarded-up house in my childhood neighborhood. Memories of this haunted house have influenced my selection of miniature accessories.

The property was on a peninsula, tucked away in an older section of the development, with large trees and overgrown plants surrounding the eerie structure. The house always seemed to be surrounded by dark and mythical energy akin to magic, and the kids from my area used to dare each other to get closer or attempt to enter the home through the one window where the board had been pulled away. Upon seeing crooked and haunted-looking witchy fairy houses, it brought me back to those moments from my childhood: as the sun was setting and we were standing on the edge of this property trying to decide if it was worth the risk to cross the perimeter into this wicked space.

My annual Halloween party is quickly approaching, so we are looking for new ways to add some extra personality to our overly decorated space. This year we are introducing a large bonfire pit decorated with spider webs, pumpkins, and hay. I thought a miniature garden would be an awesome addition to this particular outdoor space tucked around the corner of our house. Since we are using full-sized items that we can also find as miniature accessories, it seemed like a good idea to mirror these surroundings within the fairy garden by adding a stone fire pit, bales of straw, spiders, tombstones, and pumpkins to join the winged friends.

After planning the basics of the fairy garden, I then had to decide on a witchy house that would best match the rest of my design. The Tree House with its crooked roof lines, mainly created from a hollow tree, seemed the perfect selection. At first glance, it could almost pass as an average building until you started analyzing the details - this fairy house was very similar to the haunted house from my neighborhood. To introduce a little more magic to the miniature garden, I selected the Witches Den Candles and I placed them around the fairy house, which gives it a uniquely mystical vibe. My husband helps decorate a haunted house every year and chooses the themes for each room, and he always likes to remind me that our biggest fears are the things that scared us as children. He is right because I still avoid that abandoned home when I go for a walk near my parents' house, and I think about it every year around Halloween. That is why I drew inspiration for my witchy fairy garden from my childhood's haunted house.
