Miniature Pumpkin Soup for Fairies

Just a list of supplies for the mini pumpkin soup scene. I usually annotate these lists with my experiences using the products, but I wanted to get this one out to you as fast as possible, so here you go! 🙂

Supply List

Disclosure: Post contains affiliate links. I use Amazon links for two reasons. 1. I get free reference photos, which, I feel, is valuable content for you. 2. I love the convenience Amazon offers and I personally buy the bulk of my art supplies there. I only list it if I like it, and I let you know if I haven’t tried something first myself.

I use item #262, #263, & #264. No need to get all three if you’re just planning to make the pumpkin though.

This place has so many fragrance oils, you wouldn’t believe how easy it is to get carried away.  Don’t be like me and get way too many and then not use them. Just get what you want now… they’ll try to entice you with a free shipping deal. Resist.

  • Ball Stylus Sculpting Tool (not necessary, just a little helpful if you’ll be sculpting a lot)
  • Rubbing Alcohol & Paper Towel (handy for clean up)
  • A Pointy Tool (toothpick works)
  • Old Toothbrush
  • Corn Starch (keeps your fingerprints off your creation)
  • A Small Paint Brush (or two)
  • Clay Cutting Blade (you could get by with just an X-acto knife)
  • Sandpaper
  • Twigs from your yard
  • Wood Slices (for the stool seats)
  • Dremel 3000 (if you are a crafter, you need to discover the wonders of a Dremel)
  • Wood Glue
  • Thin Slate of Wood (for the chalkboard)
  • Chalkboard Paint (or just dark gray acrylic paint)
  • Chalk Pencil
  • Old Necklace Chain
  • Fabri-Tac (this is my favorite glue in all the world)
  • Acorn Tops (if they aren’t in you’re back yard, try eBay or Etsy)

  1. im hoping your daughter is ok my prayers for your family

    1. Thank you so much, Nancy. You are so dear.

  2. I’m a 71 yr 0ld child at heart. Your creations are beautiful and make me smile. I’m trying to make a Fairy House for My BFF for a tree that I seem to want to hit when backing out of her driveway…You see the tree when you enter her drive and what fun it would give to others who hate that tree when backing out. I hope we will all be more considerate of that poor banged up tree and Smile when we see it.

    1. Aw, Carroll, thanks for your kind words. I love to hear I made someone smile.:) Yes, I think your banged up tree needs a fairy house!

  3. Perfect timing with Fall coming next week. I so enjoy the time and quality you give to your videos, I eagerly await for each new production.Speaking of production, I hope your new computer will make the process more pleasurable to you.

    1. I luv your voice in videos and great stuff
      Yes. I am polymer nerd for sure

      1. Thanks for the compliment, Jackie. Sorry for the late reply! My daughter had a health crisis and time stood still for me. I’m slowing getting back to sculpting again though. Cheers!

  4. Carrie!
    I put a butternut squash and sweet potato on the counter to bake this morning so I can make soup…. I believe now, while everything is roasting away I will be sculpting the same lovely treat for my wee family to enjoy in there tiny cottage. It’s cool here and raining today so they will enjoy it by the little flickering fireplace. They may also enjoy an tiny pumpkin pie… Hmmm…

    I very much live in the same world as you, quite imaginary and make believe and beautiful…

    Thank you so much for inspiring me to pull out my long ago tucked away art supplies and reignite my passion and love of creating.

    You’ve allowed me to understand I can create a miniature world filled with wonder and magic in a non conventional perfectly me way. A grown up extra special handmade cottage tucked in Muskoka pines enhabited by a wee crocheted mouse named Evangeline and her mate an owl named Theodore Winslow.

    Thank you dear girl and I look forward to your beautiful videos, you do marvellous work! Please dont stop posting. You are truly a talented artist and your gifts of ideas, inspiration and fairy tale nonsense are well appreciated!

    1. Cynthia, you just painted a picture with words. What a joy it was to read, and show to my family. Movie making is a passion of mine, but it’s also very time consuming, so your encouragement is very much appreciated. I especially like to hear it when people say they’ve taken up art again because I did the same thing. I put art on the back burner for a good 15 years, and when I rediscovered it, well, that’s when all the nonsense began. Sculpting a fairy tale world makes me feel young again. 🙂

      I’d love to meet Evangeline and her mate Theodore; they sound like a lovely couple indeed. Thank you again for the thoughtful post.
