I've been making these "Faerie Hutches" as I call them for a few years now. They are 1:12 scale miniatures suitable for dollhouses or just decoration. I often make a few for Halloween and for Christmas each year, themed specifically for the season. The Halloween ones I call "Spooky Hutches" and they're my favorite to make. It's been almost a year since I made one but I'm happy to say I just made another recently and I'm so in love with how it came out and I wanted to show it off. Grin

First off, with a typical soda can for scale:


Inside:


Detail shots:

My Hutches take an absurd amount of time - I spend about three hours just on the painting of one of them - but I really do enjoy making them. It feels good to get back on the horse as it were and make a new one after so long. I'm now all inspired to make more again. Cheesy

So fantastic!  I love the details of the contents.  Do you make them from scratch or do you start with a premade doll cabinet that you paint and add details to?

The wooden cabinet starts off as an unfinished piece and I go from there. Sadly, I lack carpentry skills and tools to build my own. Wink

So amazing. I love the details, the use of beads is spectacular. I should make one of these for my vampire poppet. Maybe some vials of blood and other spooky Halloween paraphernalia. Excellent!

Thanks! And you can find them at craft stores. I've also seen people sell them online, like on ebay and such. (Basically reselling them at a slight markup.) It's amazing the things one can do with simple base materials! Wink

*laughs* I love the Dr. Pepper Cherry. I'm a fan of the original too but I really love the new stuff. I'm glad the click-through was worth it for you, even if I did tease you with the can. Cheesy

Decorations are a lot of fun but they do take up space. I could see that being a problem. Cry I know a couple people who have my hutches that keep them out all year because they are small and easy to display.

And thank you everyone for your wonderful, continued comments. They keep making me smile everytime I get a topic notification. Grin

I'm already working on another hutch because this one was so fun to do and really re-kindled my sense of whimsy about making them.

It reminds me of the life-size Halloween hutches that I've seen.  Now I'm thinking about a miniature spooky house with vampires, witches, mummies, etc all getting together to have their own party on Halloween.  It's like the song Dinner with Drac Part I by John Zacherle.
