Haunted House Halloween Decor

Conjure up cozy feelings of Fall!
 The turning leaves, a pot of stew simmering on the stove, stormy nights with a warm fire burning in the house, Trick-or-Treaters', candy corn; these are all the things we look forward to as Fall begins to set in. 

To make this haunted house, you will need the following:

Smoothfoam; 12 x 12" sheets:  2
Hot wire foam cutter
Pattern  (see attachment)
Acrylic paint:  Black
Chalk Ink:  White
Wedge Sponge
Cardstock:  White and Orange
Black permanent marker
Chipboard ghost adhesion
6 black die-cut arrows
Adhesives:  tacky glue and low melt glue gun


Print out pattern.  Cut out pattern pieces.  Starting with the larger pieces; trace around pattern piece onto the Smoothfoam using the pencil.  Repeat for each pattern piece.

Cut out all of the smoothfoam pieces using the hot wire cutter.

Paint all pieces Black.  Let dry.  

Trace pattern pieces onto the cardstock and cut out.  Use the black marker to draw in the details. Adhere the paper windows to the house as shown.  Sponge all of the edges with the white ink.

Join the pieces together using the toothpicks and a dab of hot glue to assemble.  Place all of the pieces before gluing.  

Enjoy your spooky decoration and have a Happy Fall!
