Here are a few not-too-scary Monster Houses that can be done in an afternoon and not take up much space. My kind of craft!
I used a set of Chunky Coffins - Small plus a handful of chipboard windows and doors to create three goofy houses. Alpha Stamps has many, many different styles and sizes of doors, windows, and houses, so creating your own would be easy!
This guy was covered in green scrapbook paper that I dabbed some paint on, and then gave it wiggly tentacles. The teeth are actually Little Crowns (I chopped off the ends of some and used pieces of others for fangs). The doorknob is a brad with the bendy-bits cut off, and the eyes are from the Eyeballs collage sheet. All of the doors and windows were painted black and backed with black cardstock or part of a collage sheet image.
This monster house was given bat wings (Victorian Bats collage sheet that has been colored) to match its unibrow. The shingles are rectangles of cardstock glued in a haphazard way. Both of the tombstones are laser cut wood pieces, which make them very sturdy and they take paint very well. The skull received two googly-eyes because where there could be googly-eyes, there should be googly-eyes.
Monster Houses require only a few pieces, some glue, and paint. It would be a perfect kid project for Hallowe'en! Don't forget the spider webs!
