I'm currently participating in round 3 of the Chunky House Swap (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=297909.0) and decided to make a whole street of houses this round.



I bought this Ouija board for $1 at my beloved Re-Use centre and went to town. I chopped it into 13 rectangles and then embellished each one with a roof, numbered it with the appropriate stamp and decorated them with buttons and other goodies.



Here's some close-up shots...

Amazing!  Brilliant use of a Ouija board. I LOVE the skeletal arms reaching out of the ground!

This is so neat!  I bought a stray Ouija board a few months ago, too, and I just haven't known what to do with it.  Your post is very inspiring (althought I still don't know what to do with it, I do feel less close to re-thrifting it.  Hee).  Great job!

I'd move into any of these houses in a heartbeat!

It's a fantastic re-use and I love all of the little details, although House no. 6 is my favourite. Cheesy

Thanks everyone. I kinda like my spooky little village.

I think if I come across another one I might make a 3-dimensional house.
