We all know how much I LOVE Dollar Tree, it is my favorite store! When they bring out their holiday stuff I go a little crazy and buy more then I should. I can’t resist all the unfinished wood stuff for only $1.00!! Halloween is one of my favorite holidays to craft for, so when I saw these cute little blank haunted houses, I knew I needed to get one! Come see what I did with this Dollar Tree Haunted House.
First I grabbed all my supplies:
Dollar Tree Haunted House
Acrylic Paints – black, white and orange
Scrapbook paper (Hobby Lobby)
Dollar Tree Wooden Shape Stickers
First I painted the whole thing black even the back and bottom piece.
Next I lined up my popsicle sticks to each window and drew a cut line. Once I had them all lined and ready I cute them all.
Then I painted all my popsicle sticks white. Including two I used for X on the door.
After that I grabbed my wooden stickers and painted them. I painted the ghost white, the bat black and the pumpkin orange.
While those were drying, I traced my house onto the scrapbook paper, and cut it out, including the windows.
I used my Mod Podge and attached my paper to the haunted house.
I took this drying time to take my moss and my hot glue gun to glue it all over the bottom. Once I had it all glued into place I just used scissors and gave it a trim to tidy it up a bit.
I took all my painted popsicle sticks and glued them onto the windows and doors, they make such cute shutters! Then I glued my wooden stickers on.
I LOVE how this Dollar Tree Haunted House turned out. It is not super scary it’s cute scary.
The best part is I got mostly everything at Dollar Tree, so it was super inexpensive and very easy to do!
I hope you have enjoyed this project, and it inspires you to create your own! <3
