Spooky 3D Paper Haunted House Tutorial!

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!

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)
