To challenge myself mostly, I am making 13 different Halloween houses in 13 days to make a Halloween village. I've simplified the patterns on the these houses so anyone can make them. Some of the later houses are a little more complicated, but nothing really difficult. Also I've left off the window and door cut outs and just painted on the details. And the painting is rather childlike so it is easy to do. I'll post each house separately within this thread. Today I have finished house no. 4.

So this is house no. 1 - a simple gable front Halloween paper house. I made this one out of cardstock, but most are made out of cardboard.

P.S. I added a photo showing the entire collection of Halloween houses.

House No. 2 in the 13 Days of Halloween series is also a simple gable house, but the gables on are the sides.

More on my blog if you want to read about making this house (and the rusted roof variation) - https://paperglitterglue.com/halloween- ... een-house/

House No. 3 seems to be a favorite - a miniature tree stump house made with a toilet paper roll and cone of cardstock.

Halloween House No. 4 in the 13 Days of Halloween House Series 2018

This house is loosely based on the Irish Cottage pattern but much smaller with an elongated curved front gable. The painting is a little sloppy, but it's supposed to look that way. It's supposed to be easy and quick and not intimidating to people who might not be quite as obsessed with little houses like we are.
