Haunted House made out of poster board

Are you getting ready for Halloween yet? At our home we sure are! Planning two parties this year, one for my children's friends and another for the Girl Scout Troop. A Halloween party is just not complete without a Haunted House! I was shopping around and the hunted houses out there were a little pricey so I decided to make my own! I made  it out of  poster board and lots and lots of glitter!

It was  a really fun project! The kids love it! 

Poster board, scissors, fabric scraps, glitter paint and extra glitter

I surfed the Internet for  a Haunted House clip art and came up with this one! 
Not hard at all and since is a Haunted House, it doesn't have to be perfect! :)
The hard part was to cute the little windows!!
The paint didn't give me enough glitter, so while the paint was still yet, I sprinkled some silver glitter.
After the paint was dried, I glued 2 wooden sticks to the back of the house to make it sturdy and to insert  the house into the Styrofoam.
I cut small pieces of orange fabric and glued them to the back of the "windows" to make curtains!

I love the look that the curtains gave to the house! SPOOKY!! :)

I already had a piece of flat Styrofoam, I glued some Spanish moss to it and added cute trees that I bought at Michaels.

Happy Halloween!
