This DIY pumpkin fairy house carving idea is one of the most adorable and cutest DIY Halloween crafts. It may take some elbow grease and create some mess, but the result is so satisfying that you’ll want to create this Halloween pumpkin carving idea every year.
I tried my hands at pumpkin carving for the first time this year and this pumpkin fairy house is only making me want to do it more and more. To achieve what I have, you need to carve mini houses out of pumpkins and decorate them. I used mini pumpkins, toothpicks, and grass for decoration, you can decorate in your own unique way with different items. 7
- Pumpkins of various sizes
- Knives or carving tools
- Grass and moss
- Wooden coaster pieces
DIY Pumpkin Fairy House Carving for Halloween
Step 1: Cut a hole at the top of a big pumpkin and empty the innards. Make sure to scrape seeds, pulp, and the fibrous strands.
Step 2: Carve a door at the front without removing the chunk from the pumpkin and two round holes for windows flanking the door.
Step 3: Insert one toothpick vertically and one horizontally into these holes to mimic window bars.
Step 4: Take a smaller pumpkin and cut it with a hole at the bottom of it. Remove the innards nicely.
Step 5: Then make a window at the front of the smaller pumpkin following the same process.
Step 6: Add string lights inside the bigger pumpkin and place the smaller one on top of it, making sure the window on the smaller gourd aligns with the front door at the bottom gourd.
Step 7: Add wood pieces – I cut a wooden coaster into three pieces – over the windows and the door as awnings.
Step 8: Place grass and mini pumpkins around the structure to mirror a bountiful abode.
