How do you build a haunted house for a project?


Things You'll Need:

  • 2 large rectangular tissue boxes
  • 1 square tissue box
  • Pencil
  • Craft knife
  • Black craft paint
  • Paint brush
  • Orange tissue paper
  • 10 by 17 inch piece of thin cardboard
  • Double stick tape
  • White card stock
  • White tissue paper
  1. Step 1

    Draw two sets of two windows on the long side of one of the large tissue boxes. Draw a set of windows and a double door on the second large tissue box. Draw one set of windows on the small tissue box. Cut out the windows with a craft knife and save the pieces. Cut out the doors, leaving the outer edges attached.

  2. Step 2

    Trace two hourglass shapes on the thin cardboard and cut them out. Lay the hourglass pieces on top of each other perpendicularly. Fold the pieces at the mid point and attach them to the small tissue box with double stick tape.

  3. Step 3

    Attach the leftover window pieces to the sides of the windows for shutters. Stick the shutters on with double stick tape. Place the shutters on crooked to give a spooky effect.

  4. Step 4

    Paint all three of the tissue boxes with black craft paint. Paint the shutters black as well. Let the paint dry thoroughly.

  5. Step 5

    Fill the inside of each box with crumpled orange or yellow tissue paper. Stack the boxes up with the smallest on top and the door on the bottom. Attach the boxes with double stick tape.

  6. Step 6

    Cut ghost shapes out of white card stock. Cover each ghost with tissue paper and then tape it to the haunted house.
