The Pumpkin Fairy House Box makes a great container for trinkets, jewelry, small toys, and other tiny treasures! The shingled roof makes up the top of the box, and the pumpkin house section has the standard shape of a pumpkin and a large, rounded wooden door, two rounded windows, and two steps! The Pumpkin Fairy House Box would be a magical project for both children and adults!
One of the most famous pumpkin-shaped houses in stories was the home of Jack Pumpkinhead from L. Frank Baum’s book, The Marvelous Land of Oz! The Pumpkin Fairy House Box is designed like it was meant to live in a fairy tale world or Brothers Grimm story, and it serves as a delightful decoration in any home or bedroom!
When painting and designing the Pumpkin Fairy House Box, it might be a good start to be inspired by fairy tale houses! Often, fairy tale houses seem to blend in with nature (thus, a pumpkin house), and may have some moss and green growth on the house itself! Earth tones are the way to go with a piece like this: burnt orange, browns, deep forest green, aqua, and so forth. Make your fairy tale home a reality with your personal style!
After painting, the Pumpkin Fairy House Box will need to be dipped in a matte or glossy glaze and fired in a kiln to seal, waterproof, and protect the pottery! This step has the added benefit of making the colors pop!
If you’re feeling whimsical and would like a charming container for trinkets and jewelry, try the Pumpkin Fairy House Box for your next pottery painting project! This alluring bisque piece also makes a great gift!
