Download and print out the haunted house template. Carefully cut out all the pieces, following which color cardstock to print on.
Step 2: Use Pastels
On a white piece of construction paper or cardstock, draw a circle (moon) with yellow pastels and then trace that circle with orange.Use your fingertips to smudge the colors together.
Use shades of orange, red and yellow to finish filling in the paper, darker to lighter. Blend, blend and blend some more!
Step 3: Create a Border
Once finished, draw a border around the entire piece of paper with black oil pastel. Blend the black pastel towards the middle of the paper.
Step 4: Glue Your Template
Glue the fence towards the bottom of the paper. Then, glue the house on top of the fence and the bats over the moon. Next, glue the doors and windows onto the house followed by any ghosts you want to add!
