ABC Challenge at Pixie Dust Studio!

 15 Days of Pixie Christmas post is below this one.
It's an "Anything But a Card" Challenge this week at Pixie Dust Studio! My FAVORITE kind of Challenge! This is what I've been working on the past few days. Hubby wanted me to make a Haunted House, and this is what I came up with. I bought a paper mache house at Hobby Lobby. It was plain brown, like a paper bag. All of the edges, doorway, and window frames were painted with black acrylic paint. I chose DP (from Archiver's)  and paper pieced the entire house.

The "trees" are black pearls on stems. I hot glued orange "Got Flowers" to them and placed a dab of black Stickles in the center.
The front.  "Unwelcome Mat": "Enter if You Dare" LOL  The pumpkins are "Dress It Up" buttons.
 Left side. The fence and spider webs in the windows are MS punches.

Right side. I placed pop dots behind all of the characters.
 The back.
The roof. I folded some CS and placed it behind the witch, so she could stand on the roof.
The roof is removable. I placed two battery operated votive candles inside so it can be lit up. 
 Here is a collage featuring all of the elements.
