Dollar Store Haunted House Decor Piece

Happy Tuesday crafty friends!
I hope your day is off to a great start and you are enjoying the new season we just hit...FALL! It is our collective households favorite season! I am outvoted 3-1. All of my immediate family love fall most of all! I love it, because I love them! Anyway, the fall feasts are a lot of fun. One of the celebrations is halloween. While as a family we do not participate in halloween, I do have a couple of halloween events I do for my job. So I wanted to make something that I could used to decorate the booth. Here is what I created.

Here is my project. It is super cute.

I started with a plain haunted house from the Dollar Store.

I painted the house with some purple paint. I made a base for it by gluing some jenga type wood blocks to both sides. I then painted them with some black paint.

With the black paint, I painted some "roof tops" While the paint was still wet, I sprinkled some glitter onn them.

For the moon die cut, I used some wire and sandwhiched a couple of the dies together with some foam tape between them.

I then went to work adding in all the super cute die cuts I used. 

Here is one last look at my completed project. Below are the dies I used.
