Behind the design

Halloween is one of our favorite holidays, so we had a frightfully good time designing this miniature haunted house! Even after we finished the basic design of the house — from the vellum windows to the LED lights — we spent countless more hours figuring out how to include added decorations that were as customizable as they were creepy. That way, every light-up haunted house out there can be totally unique!

    My grandchildren, ages 6 & 8 had a great time doing this project. They really liked making the hand drawn ghosts and all.



    Looks great for Halloween and grandkids enjoyed making it.



    Was cute and fun to build



    It was awesome! The roof doesn’t stay on well but otherwise great!

    The battery did not attached properly; therefore, no lights. But the granddaughters loved putting togetherthe rest.
