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:

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

I love your Fearie Hutches!  So much detail and whimsy without being especially cutesy.

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?

After checking out Regretsy I'm pretty sure I could sell my stuff on Etsy.

Thank you! Cheesy

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!

Wow!  This is sooo amazing.  I just love it.  It would look great in my miniature house.

So where did you get the little hutch?  I have to try some of these things for my little houses.

Great work.
