Haunted House Decoration made out of cardboard


I was asked to make another haunted house out of cardboard. But this time the client requested a more traditional, whimsical house. SO here are the step by step photos of the second 5′ tall cardboard haunted house this year.

Here is the house all cut out and ready to start painting and adding the details.

I started by spray painting it a navy blue color.

Next step was to start cutting small pieces of cardboard and creating window frames and shutters. I will also cut hundreds of small pieces for the tiles on the roof tops.

Here is the house with all the windows framed in and the tiles on the roof tops.

I took some twine string and made a spider web and hung a spider from the web.

 

 

haunted house 5

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here is a close up look of the tiles. I deliberately cut them in very random sizes and attached them in a haphazard fashion to create the illusion of age.

I also added some old creepy purple fabric to all the windows for tattered curtains. I also added “Googlie eyes” to each window in the house.

And here is the finished house.

 

 

I hope is the focal point that were hoping it would be.

 

Happy Halloween!
