Spooky 3D Paper Haunted House Tutorial!

3D Paper Haunted House

Hi everyone! This week, I’m bringing you one last Halloween tutorial before the holiday is here! In this video tutorial, we’re creating a spooky, fun haunted house out of paper! Put an LED tea light or two in it, and it makes a great decoration for both Halloween day and night!

Click the image below to watch the video tutorial:


This is a very fun project to make! Feel free to customize it with your own decorations. I think kids would have a great time decorating this also (although an adult should probably do the assembly first).


  • Card stock – you’ll definitely want to use heavier, stronger paper for this project
  • Vellum or tracing paper (if you want to add “glass” to the windows)
  • Glue – I used hot glue for the assembly of the house and Tombow Mono Liquid Glue to attach the vellum
  • X-Acto knife or other craft knife
  • Scoring tool (or an old pen that no longer writes)
  • Ruler
  • Thin wire to attach to the bats – I used 24 gauge
  • Scissors
  • Acrylic paint (if you want to add distressing to the house) – depending on the colors of the house, you’ll need white or black (or both, in my case)
