Halloween CARDBOARD haunted house made from cardboard boxes

This weekend my son and I had a blast making this little halloween center piece out of Saltine crakerbox and Gram cracker, and granola boxes. 

First we contructed the house by taping the boxes together using masking tape.
We drew where we wanted the doors and windows would go.
 The turret was made with a granola box and cutting the corners to make the roof. The flag was made from scrapbook paper and a toothpick. The little sign says "God Bless Our Home" I found this at a craft shop and glued it on at the end.
After the box was taped and windows and doors cut out. We painted the house with gesso and black acrylic paint mixed together. Then when it dried we added the shingles. I LOVE THIS FORSTER WOOD SQUARES! They are amazing balsa wood little squares that snap so easily to any size you want. We used elmers glue and a brush and put them on the roof. Once all the shingels were glued and dried we glued popsticle sticks on for the slats on the sides of the house and framed the house with the popsticle sticks. I had to cut the sticks with a sharp tool. Then we repainted the house, and dry brushed it with the white gesso to get the weathered effect.


Supplies. Popsticle sticks from 99 cents store. Toothpics and the Forster Wood squares. You can use anything to decorate the house once you are finished. Make your own trees and even lanscape it.


Yay finshed and and can't wait to put on our table!
