Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween !  This is a project I made from a foam pumpkin, some paperclay, paint, and a few other odds and a few years ago.  The pumpkin and lights were purchased at 50% off after Halloween.

Do you dare trick or treat at this scary house ?

Lots of jack-o'-lanterns line the yard and the porch is decorated for Halloween.  I made the stone porch out of paper clay and painted it to look old.

I painted the windows and shutters with crackle finish to add to the effect.  Still contemplating what kind of plants to put in the window boxes.  Maybe some sort of man eating plant or something from Harry Potter?

The jack-o'-lanterns are from Lemax.  I hid the transformer under the floor. The table inside is just an upside down plastic cup that I covered with some Halloween fabric.  The candy corn floor lamp is also from Lemax.  The parlor stove is a plastic kit by Chrysnbon that I put together back in the 1980s.  I am still contemplating how to make a cool chimney for it on the outside of the pumpkin.

The scary skeleton is sitting lounging on a Victorian chaise lounge, waiting to hand out goodies to anyone who dares come trick or treating.  I used a piece of scrap book paper to cover the floor.  The floor is a piece of foam core that I cut to fit.

I created a niche under the stairs for the display.  Did you notice the Halloween candy decorations hanging from the lights?


  1. Preciosa esa casa-calabaza y con la iluminación perfecta!!!!!! Me gusta mucho.
    Unas plantas carnívoras en las ventanas,serían fabulosas!!

  2. This is a great Halloween show! So many fun details; I love the pumpkins wearing the cat and bat masks, and the candy-decorated lights are a nice touch. Windows, shutters, stone porch - all just right, although I do especially like the porch!
