To Make a Miniature Haunted House or a House Silhouette You Will Need:

  • Empty Cereal Boxes or shoe boxes for miniature buildings, or pieces of lightweight card or cardboard to make silhouettes
  • Kraft Paper from a grocery bag or a piece of kraft paper from a parcel. Old envelopes can be used as well.
  • Glue Stick or PVA (white) glue and a spreader.
  • Sharp Scissors to cut out printable parts.
  • Old Stiff Paint Brush to dry brush a texture on your kraft paper siding.
  • Ruler to measure and mark the position of any printable details.
  • Matte Acrylic Paint in your choice of colors to dry brush onto your siding to make it look old and worn. In the photos I used black so that you could easily see it. You get a more realistic siding effect if you use a dark color of paint normally found on Victorian houses.

  • Printable Building Details - see later page for list and sizes.
