    My September project is to take this rather UGLY house that I bought at a garage sale for 25 cents and turn it into a haunted house display for Halloween....I'm inviting you to make a haunted house during September....Let's get in the spirit of Halloween! It doesn't have to be like mine....there are all kinds of ways to make one...from paper, from old boxes, buy a plain one from a craft store, repupose an old birdhouse....all sorts of possibilites....WILL YOU JOIN the adventure and make one during September?

    I remember (I can't remember the lady's name) on HGTV who had the craft show. She had a guest on that made a House out of cardboard milk cartons. It was way cool. Now that I think about it it was Christmas houses but you could do the same for a haunted house.

    I will be following your progress Ginger. I might add this to my list of crafting for next year :)

    That is the perfect base for the start of a haunted house and great repurposing, too! I can't wait to see the finished project.

    I'd love to do that. I've always....ALWAYS wanted to make a gingerbread/candy haunted house. My daughters friend did one years ago, that was the coolest thing!

    That sounds cool MinnieCo

    I am almost finished taping the windows....I'm going to spray paint the house black but want to do the windows and doors another color....not sure what...maybe a sparkly purple...hmmmm

    Ginger - My vote would be a sparkly purple or a bright orange.
