I have joined the tiny haunted house swap, but before I did, I wanted to try and make one to make sure I even could. Here is what I came up with -
The foundation and chimney are made of chicken grit, leftover from when my bf and I had chickens.
the tree is a dried weed from out back. the leaves at the bottom of the tree are real - I gathered turned maple leaves and put them thru my food processor
It is hard to see, but there are different curtains in every window. the basic structure is posterboard, with white colored pencil drawn on.
the skeleton at the clothesline is made from thread. the jackolanterns are tiny painted styrofoam puffs stolen from an autumn sprig at the dollar store. (that did not sound right.... I paid for them, then stole from the sprig, lol!!)
there are real flowers (golenrod bits) on the front steps.
and when you take the puff of smoke out and stick a pencil down the chimney hole, you can push down and turn on the inner light....
I put in a real spiders web from the back yard, but you cant see that in the window either in photos...
I cant wait to get started on my swap haunted house!!
