Tim Holtz Vintage Dwelling altered into a Halloween House

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

Hello. I have moved this post to my new blog. All the information and pictures are on the new blog here. I am leaving a few photos here because people follow the link from Pinterest usually and I just feel bad when there is nothing to be found. By the way, this was the very first Tim Holtz house I made. I love this die. And I loved making this little house. In fact, I need to make some more like this. Anyway, please visit me at my new blog paperglitterglue.com. I am always working on new projects that I think you will enjoy. Thank you, Lucy

Rusted Tin Roof on a Halloween House - Tutorial

Please join me on my new blog - paperglitterglue.com where this project is included with more already added. Thank you. 

I am gradually moving all the content on this blog to my new blog. This tutorial is available on the paperglitterglue.com blog here. I hope you will stop by to see the complete tutorial. The reason I leave some of the photos here is because I am so disappointed when I follow a link (usually a Pinterest pin) that I am really curious about and then there is nothing there. So I keep some content on this blog to prevent that for you. I hope to see you at my new blog where I am working hard on new content all the time. Thank you, Lucy.



















Step 9. Streak black distressing paint on the edges and wherever you think it needs some aging.

Jack's House - Probably the last Halloween House of the Season

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

I moved this blog post to my new blog where I have updated the content and added a couple of more photos. You can read about Jack's house here. I haven't completely deleted this blog because I am always disappointed when I try to follow a link to some cool, crafty project and it's gone. I don't know if you consider this little house a cool, crafty project, but I hope so.







You can see the "bone chimes" better on this view. The tree has not been permanently installed yet.

I have moved this post to my new site along with the comments. I have left a few photos here in case you follow a link to this page. I didn't want you to be too disappointed. The house isn't one of my greatest, but the book is one of the very best ones I've ever made. The blogpost on my new blog is here.

The Making of Black Hat Inn Cardboard Halloween House

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




I am gradually moving the posts from this blog to my new blog - paperglitterglue.com. The content on this page has been moved here if you would like to read about the Making of the Black Hat Inn.  I'm leaving some photos up so that if you have followed a link to this blog, you won't find an empty page or the dreaded 404 error. I do hope you will visit me on my new blog. Thank you. Lucy

I think it looks better in person as I am not a very good photographer and my photo background is pretty bland. Overall, I am very happy with this little cardboard house. I may try to build one more before the October Head Start sale. If I do build another one I don't think I will make it an Inn, I think it will be single residence.

More Halloween Houses now with bases

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


I have migrated all the content from this post to my new blog. I'm leaving a few photos up because people still find their way here through Pinterest or some other search engine. I don't want you to be disappointed.

My intention was to leave this blog alone for that reason, but Google doesn't like the idea of duplicate content. It thinks someone is stealing information from someone else. So I am gradually changing what is present on this blog. I do hope you will join me on my new blog. I have been crafting away making lots of new things.

However, I must say it is kind of fun to see the old content. I love this little house below. It went to a friend's son whom I call my biggest fan because he loves this house so much.

Candy Corn House - Evolution of an Idea

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



I have moved the content from this blog post to my new blog here. I had intended to leave this blog up for quite awhile just because I know people follow old links and come here. I didn't want them to be disappointed. I hate it when I see something really cool, usually on pinterest, and then follow the link and it goes nowhere. It's frustrating.

But the problem is that Google gets confused when there is duplicate content on the web. Google thinks that one person is stealing from another. It's kind of hard to steal from yourself, but Google doesn't understand that. So I am gradually deleting these posts and giving you the link to where you can find the information. I hope to see you on my new blog. I am working on cool stuff. I think you will like it.

Halloween Book

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


You can find the link to the Halloween book here.


I am gradually deleting the content on my old blogger blog because Google won't recognize the new blog. It is confused by duplicate content and it thinks I am stealing someone else's content. I have been leaving it up because I know people find their way here at times and I don't want them to be disappointed. My goal is to edit and improve each post with more photos, if possible, so that the content is even better. Unfortunately, my photography skills weren't very good in 2015 so it is a bit of a challenge.

Please do visit my new blog. You will find lots of great paper crafting projects and information there. Thank you. Lucy
