If you love Halloween decorating like I do then you are sure to love this little Dollar Tree haunted house. It’s simple to make and it turned out oh so cute. Dollar tree projects like this one are perfect for getting the kiddos involved too. I actually had a fun time crafting this dollar tree haunted house with my mom and it was just what the doctor ordered. This would make a cute little addition to a gallery wall or as part of a fun little vignette. I have included a list of supplies. I did not include all of the smaller little elements. Once your see the pictures it can give you an idea for what to look for during your next dollar store visit.
- Haunted House Wood Cutout
- A backing of some sort. I used corrugated metal from an old sign for added texture
- Hot Glue
I used Minwax Espresso to stain the cutout. Then, using mod podge, I applied orange polka dot scrapbook paper to the backside to add a pop of funky design and color.
Can I let you in on a little secret? These little twiggy type picks (that’s what you call them right?) from the Dollar tree are my absolute favorite fillers to grab from their floral section. They make good vase fillers and they are perfect to disassemble with wire cutters
After the picks were hot glued, I used a bit of spray adhesive and Spanish Moss to cover the hot glued end of the picks. This stuff is magic. It is perfect for these types of mosses. The best part? It doesn’t burn your fingers. I know the pain all too well.
For a little added touch, I colored a few Dollar Tree wooden pumpkin stickers to sprinkle among the moss. This was the little detail that really took this fun little project to the next level. If you haven’t involved the kiddos by this point, it would be a great time to let them decorate the little pumpkins!
And for the final and finishing touch.…duh..duh..duh…a full moon! A haunted house wouldn’t be complete without a full moon! Am I right? In this case, our moon was made by cutting a traced circle from a free paint chip! How fun is this? I was so excited seeing this little thing come together!
