All you need is some flat black spray paint and some white paint and this little doll house that I found at the Dollar Store. You can really use any sized house - it's totally up to you. You also need a chip brush for painting.

Remove the doll house from the package and remove the tape from the door. Grab your black spray paint and head outside!

Now that you are outside or in a well ventilated area, open the little door just a little and spray the entire house with a nice even light coat.

Let the spray paint dry.

The key to the next step is to make sure the paint is completely dry and that you use a stiff bristle brush. I used a cheap chip brush with very little paint and pressure.

Put a tiny bit of paint on your brush and very lightly drag it across the front of the house. You don't want to paint completely over the black, you just want to hilight it. You can always add more paint if you don't have enough but a little goes a long way.

Watch my YouTube video on how to dry brush this haunted house!

It's that easy! So fast to make and adds some great decor for Halloween.

Here is one of the decor trays I put together. So cute!

You can also find these cool Halloween bottles to finish off this great look and to match the haunted house.
