Fairy Garden Pumpkin House with FastCast Resin
Hi Resin Crafters, it’s Natalie from Doodlecraft sharing a perfect resin craft for Halloween decorating. Put a new twist on fairy gardens with this little pumpkin house, made with FastCast resin. This darling fairy house is easy to make and is an especially fun addition to the home entry way or on the table as a centerpiece. Enlist the help of the kids to paint and decorate the pumpkin to their hearts content.
- FastCast Resin
- Fairy Door Silicone Mold
- 2 Mixing Cups, 2 Stirring Sticks, disposable gloves
- Foam Pumpkin
- Acrylic Craft Paint
- Hot Glue/Gun
Begin this fairy garden pumpkin house by mixing the FastCast resin according to package directions in the 2 phase mixing process.
Start by mixing 1 part resin and 1 part hardener for a full 2 minutes. Then pour the resin in a new cup and mix for 1 minute with a new stick.
Then carefully pour the resin in the silicone mold. Look at what a mess I made!
The resin will harden in 15 minutes, it changes from clear to white.
Then remove the resin from the mold and use scissors to trim away excess sloppy resin.
Second, paint the pieces with a variety of fun colors. I used aqua, fuschia and red with gold accents.
After the paint dries, use the hot glue gun to adhere the pieces to a foam pumpkin.
Glue the door on the pumpkin with a little space below it for creating a little gravel sidewalk or dirt trail.
This is a great craft for kids to paint and arrange for their own spooky addition to a fairy garden.
Decorate with rocks, gravel, plants and dirt…or find some fairy figurines or little skeleton to add some more fun to this little pumpkin fairy house.
