Two-story pumpkin fairy house:

Two-story pumpkin fairy house can be constructed out of three pumpkins – two small pumpkins and one big pumpkin. The top of all the pumpkins must be cut off so that inside guts can be hollowed out with ease. After that use gouge to carve different textures around the pumpkins to make doors and windows.

The layout

In this type of pumpkin house, the biggest pumpkin serves as the first story. The hole is made on its right side on top so that it can nestle nicely. Furthermore, the front of the big pumpkin also has a hole to act as the door and the third pumpkin attached to it acts as a porch.DIY Pumpkin Fairy Garden for Halloween

Keeping the pumpkins together

The pumpkins are connected together using bamboo skewers or you could also use toothpicks. It won’t be a rock-solid connection, but quite easy for you to carry them around without them falling apart. On the sections, where the pumpkins were connected, they need to be covered with dry moss to make the dollhouses appear more seamless.

The roofing

For the roof, shingles of a big pine cone are used to give it natural wooden touch. The chimney itself is made out of a firewood stack to give rustic appeal to the tiny pumpkin house. It has been attached with a couple of skewers that were glued at first and then poked into the pumpkin for the stronger connection.
