I taught a class to celebrate Halloween at my local art center. I purchased chipboard houses from etsy and had the kids paper them up. This is my house I made!

The front featuring the door and a window. I made mine pretty fancy and used ink to grunge it up.

Side view with windows. Notice the tulle curtains and check that tiny gable!

The back yard complete with a trio of grave stones.

Each house was also supplied with a battery operated tea light for that extra spook factor. It is very hard to get a good picture of something lit up in the dark!

It turned out to be a great class and now I have a fun new decoration too!
Thanks for looking!

This is the cutest little haunted house! I love the rickrack around the base, the papers you chose, the little gravestones, and the fact that it lights up. Awesome.  Grin

I bet everyone loved being in your class.
I especially like the tulle curtains. They look a bit spider-webby!

Thanks!
It was tons of fun and the kids are already asking if we could do it again next year!
