DIY: Halloween Silhouettes / Haunted House


(Click to see more pictures). We put these images up on the entire front of our house last year and hosted a trick-or-treat costume party. If you DIY your own images you can make the images unique and get the whole family involved. Put up green, orange or purple tissue paper behind the silhouettes and transform your entire house in time for Halloween.

Whole house transformation.  My upstairs windows on the left were tricky, those are loft windows so we kept those simple.
