Decorating for Halloween can sometimes be difficult if you don’t like the scary and gory stuff you see in the big box stores. Our family isn’t big into anything super scary so it has always been difficult for us. Last year I purchase the most Halloween decorations I have ever had in my life and that consisted of a few fake crows, paper bats, and a 4-foot skeleton. It’s not a lot to most, but for someone like me, it was a lot. This year I am staying true to a simplistic Halloween and adding the cutest DIY wooden haunted houses.
What You Need:
Wooden houses from Dollarama
Black spray paint or acrylic paint
Hot glue or gorilla glue
Battery twinkle lights
How to Make DIY Wooden Haunted Houses
The crafting wooden houses that I found at Dollarama could stick together on their own once assembled, but I added some hot glue to make sure they were secure and wouldn’t fall apart when moved or picked up.
Once the glue has dried, paint the inside of the houses black and continue on to the outside, followed by the roof. Apply a second coat if needed.
Insert twinkle lights and secure the roof. I cut the twinkle lights to my desired size and made sure to not glue them to the roof so I can access the lights when needed.
That’s it! Add some bats, spiders, or other Halloween elements to make your own little haunted neighborhood!
