This summer I scored a large bag of Little People for my daughter at the thrift store. Included were animals, knights and Little People dressed in their Halloween costumes. Tallulah has plenty of fun playing with her Little People as is, but I thought why not kick it up a notch and start getting her in the Halloween spirit. We missed the recycling last week so I had cardboard milk cartons starting to pile up and it dawned on me what cute Haunted Houses they would make!

To keep up with the hot pink theme I used some Hambly rub-on’s that look like doilies/spider webs on the sides of my haunted house. I used Aleene’s Acid Free Tacky Glue to adhere some vintage photographs of children that were kinda creepy.
Seems like a lot of work, but actually a milk carton was transformed into a creepy casa in a couple of hours and most of that was paint and glue drying time.
