Haunted House Paper Craft Materials Needed:

- markers, crayons or colored pencils or paint
- white school glue
- cardboard toilet paper or paper towel roll (optional)
- LED tealight candle (optional)
- small paper punch (optional)
How to Make this Halloween Coloring Page Craft
To make this paper haunted house for Halloween, start by printing the two coloring page sheets which make up the house, both the walls and the roof. Sturdy cardstock can be used or normal paper. To make the house more stable, a cardboard roll can be used inside the tube. You can use either a toilet paper roll or a paper towel roll, cut to fit. Color or paint the walls and the roof. Add more decorative touches if you wish, the possibilities are endless!
If you plan to make this a luminary, use an extra small paper punch (such as 1/8 inch) to add holes to the top of the roof, or use scissors to create very small holes. Next, cut out the wall and roof- follow the cutting prompt. Roll the rectangle to form a tube and secure with clear sticky tape. Fold the circle to form a cone following the prompts. Again, secure with clear sticky tape. The folded piece on the inside of the cone can be secured flat with tape or cut off completely.
You’ll want to then dab a few drops of liquid glue on the top part of the tube (walls) and place the cone (roof) on top. Keep it there for a few second to make sure it stays in place. Leave to dry completely before moving.
If you are going to be making this a luminary , add a battery operated LED tealight candle (flameless) inside the tube to make the house glow up at night.
