Every piece of our paper haunted house craft is made of shapes. The rectangles for the house, the triangle roofs, the square windows, and the circle moon. Then just add some lines, some bats, and a few silly googly eyes peeking through the windows and you have a fun haunted house.

Make a Paper Haunted House Craft with Shapes

Supplies needed:

  • Cardstock – black, purple, yellow
  • Black marker
  • Googly eyes, very small
  • Glue stick
  • Scissors

Begin by cutting your shapes for the house from the black cardstock.

rectangles and triangles

We cut about a 2 inch strip from the top, width-wise, then cut the rest in different sized rectangles. Then cut 3 triangles to fit the rectangles from the strip.

yellow circle moon

Cut a large circle from the yellow cardstock. Glue in place.

Then, begin gluing the rectangles in place.

triangle roof

Glue the triangles to the top of the rectangles. Make some crooked to make your house more haunted.

square windows

Now, cut a bunch of squares from the yellow cardstock in different sizes. Also cut a large rectangle for the door. Cut or use a 1” paper punch to make 2 circles, too.

Glue all the pieces in place.

lines and bats

Next, use the black marker to make lines through the windows and across the door. Also use the black marker to make some simple bat shapes around the moon.

small googly eyes in windows

Finally, place a few really small googly eyes in the windows. Or, stickers would be cute, too, if you have Halloween stickers.
