This popsicle stick haunted house is a great Halloween craft and makes a great decoration! This is one of our more difficult crafts and is therefore geared more towards older children. Your kids will be proud to show off this Halloween craft that they created from such simple materials. Add some magnets to the back and bring it out to decorate the fridge year after year!

What you'll need:

  • Large popsicle sticks (the size of tongue depressors)
  • Small popsicle sticks
  • Craft paint: black, purple, fluorescent green
  • Glue
  • Paint brushes
  • Scissors
  • Foam Halloween figures (*if you have trouble finding the pre-made foam figures used here, feel free to make your own!
How to make your Popsicle Stick Haunted House Craft:
  • To construct the house: lay two large popsicle sticks horizontally on a table.  Spread a generous amount of white glue along these sticks.  Line up 8 sticks vertically over the horizontal supports.  Set the house aside to dry.
  • To construct the roof: make a triangle out of three large popsicle sticks.  Use a lot of glue at the junction points!  When this is dry, use scissors to cut 4 large popsicle sticks to length so that they are just slightly larger than the middle opening of the triangle.  Glue these sticks on the back of the triangle and set this aside to dry.
  • To make the door: cut a small popsicle stick to a height of 2 inches.  Cut 2 more sticks so they are 1 3/4" tall, then two more sticks 1 1/2" tall.  Line them up so that they form the curved door.  Cut a small popsicle stick in half and apply glue to the back of each half.  Lay down over top of the "door" sticks to hold them together.  Let dry.
  • Paint the door green, the house purple and the roof black.
  • Glue all the pieces of the house together.
  • Use green paint to paint a window in the upper left corner of the house.
  • Add the foam Halloween figures to your house.
