Haunted House Halloween Fun

I made Jewel and Rosie a Haunted House out of a cardboard box and they have been having so much fun with it!

I had so much fun putting this together for the girls!  I just love the way it turned out, too! To make our spooky house, I took a large cardboard box we have had for a while and painted it to look like a haunted house.

If you don't have a box like this on hand you can purchase one from Home Depot,  U-haul, or similar moving company for around $10

Once the outside of the box was dry I poked holes in the top and hung spooky witches, skeletons, spiders, and bats using pipe cleaners.

I purchased all the spooky hangings at The Dollar Tree.

 I covered one entrance to the haunted house with a spooky entrance flap

Then I poked more holes in the top of the box and strung purple Halloween lights all along the top.

The lighting was a fantastic finishing touch!

 After they tired of playing the first time I turned the lights off and the blacklight on for one final surprise- 

The haunted  house GLOWS!

If you want your windows to glow be sure to use fluorescent paint.



A haunted house like this one would make a great addition to a Halloween party.  I know we will be using ours at our little Halloween get together!
