Inspired by knickertwist's altered altoid tin, http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=271859.0
I decided to make my own haunted house to hold my Halloween ATCs.

It is made from foam core which has been paper mache'd with tissue paper and sheet music.

Do you think it is spooky?  Any suggestions to make it look more spooky?

That is beautiful.  I really like the girls on the balcony. 

As for adding to it, I wouldn't do too much more because you don't want to go overboard but maybe a face peering out of one of the windows??  I like it the way it is, though.

Just hit the Rocks button - this is fantastic!

The only suggestion I could offer if you feel you want to add something is perhaps a tiny scrap of fine netting or black tights glued in a corner of the porch or door, or gutters, to look like big cobwebs...although I think it really is perfect as it is....

This is gorgeous qazicat! Reminds me of some of the old houses at Salem, Massachusetts (where they had all those witch trials?).  I wouldn't change a thing! And I would never be able to put it away after Halloween was over!!!
