Its Time for Halloween Crafts! First Up- Haunted Houses

I actually LOVE the fall.  And it is finally cold and cloudy here today!  That might not sound like a big deal, but for Seattle- it is.  80 days without rain.  That is unheard of for us, and frankly, I hate it.

I love the fall.  The cold weather, the rain, the hot apple cider.  Normally if its sunny and somewhat warm in Seattle, you HAVE to go outside.  Its actually a law.  January?  Doesn’t matter, if its sunny, we’re heading outside.

So, with 80 days of it, I’m getting kind of sick of playing outside.  Parks, bikes, beaches- its all too much for me!  Enough already!  I live in Seattle, not LA!

So, when the clouds and the rain came this morning, I jumped for joy.  Time for indoor crafty fun!  Time to make banana bread and apple cider!

Here is what we made today…

I saw it on Pinterest, but I won’t put the link because it went to some strange adult site.

Post Note… OK, after some research, I found the original site.  You can find it here.  She is much more of a perfectionist than myself, and does it really well.  Check it out!

I just cut out the haunted house picture in both black and white paper (stacked on top of each other), then I gave them the white paper to make scary pictures on, and cut little doors and windows over their drawings.  A little glue stick action, and voila.  Custom Haunted Houses!
