How To Make Spooky Houses

Turn your empty cartons into spooky Halloween houses with this simple little tutorial!

You will need:

  • empty cartons
  • craft knife
  • black paint (spray paint is good for this project)
  • orange cellophane
  • white chalk pen
  • googly eyes
  • battery operated tealight

Take your empty carton and draw the outlines of a door and windows on it.

Carefully cut them out using your craft knife.

Also cut a large opening out of the bottom of the carton for the tealight.

Paint the houses black. I used spray paint for this as it’s much quicker and easier!


Cut some orange cellophane to size and stick it to the inside of the carton, so it covers the door and windows. This can be a little fiddly, so don’t be too much of a perfectionist with it! Repeat for each side of the carton.

Draw some spooky spider webs on using the white chalk pen.

Add some pairs of googly eyes and pop your house over a tealight (the flickering ones give a good spooky effect).

That’s it! Please do leave a comment below or tag me on Instagram @thelittlejones if you give these spooky houses a go!
