Halloween Houses

Hi all! I am so excited to share my little Halloween Houses with you! Halloween is my favorite holiday; I love all the spookiness, the decor and costumes and since the weather is cooler, yet not that cold yet, it just can't get much better!  I think we should have Halloween at least once a month so everyone could dream up great costumes and buy candy without feeling guilty :)  These Halloween Houses are so easy to make and you can find all the dies you need at Dies R Us - truly one stop shopping with great prices! 


What I Used to Make my Houses:
I used the following on both houses;
Lawn Fawn Scalloped Treat Box, #LF1232
Lawn Fawn Scalloped Treat Box Halloween Add On Dies, #LF1487
Card in Black, Yellow, White, Orange, Brown and Grey


I am calling this house House #1.  In addition to the above products I used the following:
Lawn Fawn Spooky Village Stamp Set, #LF2014 {sentiment}
Die-Namics Stitched Fishtail Sentiment Strips, #MFT-1123


I cut the actual house out of heavy black card, as well as the the doorknob and one bat.  The roof, door and windows were cut out of grey card; yellow card was used to add a warm glow to the windows.  I added some spooky brown trees to each side of the house, the back has a window and a cute ghost.  Lastly, I added the sentiment.  These houses are so cute in person, they are small, the perfect size for  gift card and you can make them to match almost any occasion, including just because! You can make a beach house, a winter house, a spring themed house and even a dog house!  I am sure Lawn Fawn will continue making add on options for the treat box as it's a great seller and so adorable, even with no add on! 

On to House #2.  I used the products listed about as well as some orange card and the following:
Lawn Fawn Pick of the Patch Stamp Set, #LF1754

Lawn Fawn Pick of the Patch Die Set, #LF1755
Lawn Fawn Costume Party Stamp Set, #LF1458 {sentiment}
Embossing Ink
Hero Arts White Embossing Powder
Acetate

I constructed the little house using grey card, used a darker grey for the roof and black for the door and windows.  I backed the windows and door with yellow card and used some brown trees on each of the sides.  I also made a pumpkin and added it to one side along with a tree.  The back of the house has a black cat and a window.  This one is my favorite of the two houses because I also added 2 black bats "flying" above the house with the help of some acetate strips.  I love them!  I embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder on black card and trimmed it to fit the spot on the roof.

These are perfect for a small, snack sized candy bar or a few truffles {dark chocolate, of course!} and if I don't give them away, I know they will come out to decorate for Halloween year after year.  They are easy enough to make using an assembly line, enlist some help from the kids or friend, and you can make a whole class worth in no time! And who knows, I may construct an entire village of spooky little treat boxes!
