I made this haunted house for Pottermouth in the Vintage Halloween swap.  She identifies as a Ravenclaw member and I had the most gorgeous raven paper to use as the front facade.  The fences are sprayed with a glow in the dark paint. 



Bats in the belfry?  You bet!  I had the hardest time finding images to put in all of the little windows until I came across a Halloween themed toile paper in my stash.  It worked perfectly.


I love the starry night paper in the cubby.  It's a favorite.



Thanks so much to Pottermouth for allowing me to use her photos!

Thanks guys!  With the bat I'm guessing it stands around 8 inches tall.

The windows are just perfect.  I really love the flight path of the bat, too.  Something about that squiggly wire is just great. Cheesy

This is such a great piece. I love the red gem eyes in the critters! It's a fun detail - as is the glow in the dark fence!!
