easy to make Halloween village
Here's a spooky Halloween village that I created and I am going to show you how to make it too! The best part about this little project is that it will cost you next to nothing to make, I am betting you already have many of these items around your house!


Suggested supply list:


STEP ONE: Put the house template (download here) on top of a sheet of old music paper and trace around it with a pencil and then cut it out. Don't forget you can adjust the template to make tall and skinny houses or any type of house you would like!


STEP TWO: Draw in where you would like the windows and doors to go.


STEP THREE: Paint in the house. Paint around all the doors and windows leaving them unpainted. Here I am using Charcoal Black from the Claudine Hellmuth Studio Line.


STEP FOUR: Here I added details. I used Claudine Hellmuth Studio Sticky Back Canvas painted with Landscape Green to make the curtains, and the
Ranger Inkssentials White Pen.


STEP FIVE: Fold all your edges and then glue the tab to the other side of the house with Claudine Hellmuth Studio Multi Medium.



STEP SIX: Pinch the sides to shape the house.


STEP SEVEN: Place the roof template on a piece of scrapbook paper, trace around and cut out


STEP EIGHT: Fold the roof piece down the center and then add details or trim if you like!


STEP NINE: Put the roof on your house and then place a BATTERY OPERATED tea light candle underneath. DO NOT use a regular tea light candle with flame because it will catch your mini house on fire! You can find Battery tea light candles at home stores like Bed Bath and Beyond, Dollar Store or at your local craft store.


YOU'RE DONE! Here's the little house along with a few others ready to bring spookiness to your home. It was difficult to capture just how glowing the houses are with the battery tea lights underneath. When you make yours, you will see how fun they are!

Super cute, Claudine!! :) Thanks for the template! :)
 
Claudine,
You have out-done yourself with this adorable project!! Love how you were able to incorporate all your wonderful products and your cute whimsical style. I will definitely give this a try. Oh, and I have to say that I LOVE LOVE LOVE your brushes. Have been using them lately with a few projects and the quality is fantastic!! I really enjoy your matte medium and can't wait to try your sticky-back canvas and paints. Thanks for all your creative ingenuity and for sharing so many inspiring projects.
 
Perfect project for a rainy day with the kids! Reminds me of the the german glitter houses I collect that you put a christmas light bulb in. (that has celophane over the windows). I might have to give this one a try!
 
Wow! That looks so amazing. Thanks for sharing instructions!
 
Neat project Claudine! Like how you just painted over the sheet music like that. Bet a few of the notes peep through giving it a lot of texture and interest. I agree that it would be a great project to do with the kids. Especially the older ones since they could come up with their own spooky designs!
 
positively spook-tacular !
 
That is a very cute village!! Don't know if remember but we met at summer CHA - I was the girl asking you where you went to art school!! Finally got a chance to stop by your blog and say "hi". Congrats on your Stan-aversary, and love your kitties, too!
 
This looks awesome! I think I will try this!
 
Hello,

This is a super cool project!

I love, love, love this Claudine! I can't make to make a few for my buffet. I'll be linking as well. Thanks tons!
 
I love this, even though I'm not a big halloween decorator. I could see making a bunch of these as a fall or holiday decor.
 
Hi Claudine and everyone, This is cute. My first thought before I read the supplies was that they were from quart and pint size milk and juice containers. They are a good size to make houses and village components from and are easily covered in papers or paints.
 
this is super cute !! thanks for sharing !
 
I love how cute this is!! I HAVE to do this with my seven year old. He'll love it! And thanks so much for the template.
