Tutorial - How to Build a Halloween Cardboard House - Part Two

Please join me on my new blog - where this project is included with more already added. Thank you. I hope to see you there.

I've moved this blog post about building a Halloween putz house to my new blog. Really I have a lot of new ideas and patterns on the new blog. I think you will enjoy visiting. Lucy at


  1. Hello again Lucy! What a great house! I enjoyed reading the tutorial. How did you make the base the house sits on? Did you use Howard's method? Are there other methods you use? Thanks!

  2. Yes, that is mostly how I do it. I glue several layers of corrugated cardboard together. This cardboard often pops open on the edges so I always wrap it with something. At first I used copy paper, now I score a piece of regular (meaning non-corrugated) cardboard the size of the base and make flaps to go around the irregular corrugated edges and glue that down. It seems to make the flattest, most stable base, but you do have visible seams at the corners. Since I usually glue a fence around the edge it doesn't really matter. I'll try to make a post that shows how I do it.
