Spooky Houses


I’m love finding new ways to up cycle or recycle things that I already have in my home to create new crafts, diys or decor items for each season.  One of my boys wasn’t feeling great so he stayed home from school and after doing some morning work we took a break and crafted.  He loves painting so I decided to make some spooky houses with cardboard from shipping boxes that hadn’t been recycled yet.  I already had the paint, pipe cleaners, and popsicle sticks from previous craft projects.  All I needed was a house outline which I found and edited in Canva!  Read below to see how you can make your own spooky house with my FREE printable spooky house template!
