Elmhurst Hollow Haunted House

This will be the only Halloween House I will make this year. Last year, I made a bunch of them in various themes. This year, I saw this house on designed by Mary - her Elmhurst Hollow Collection contains a Haunted House and other haunted projects which will be posted later this week. The house is embossed with a spider web embossing folder and all edges are sponged using Craft White ink. Printed paper: scraps I had from last year that worked really well. Finished house measures 8" x 5" x 8-1/4". This Haunted House is really special because it lights up through those vellum windows using those small LED candles.

See? Here's the house back opening to position the three candles
Here's the house with the candles during the day lit up:
With the lights shut off, the house looks great!!!! Love the spooky eyes on the roof.

In the house center, adhesive orange rhinestone eyes with vellum backs peer out from the roof:

In the right side roof, a small bat is attached to wires:

Left side has a larger bat attached with a wire:

House center window frames are in SU Green Galore CS and the boards are cut using SU Lavender Lace. The nail heads: Sukura Glaze Pen - love that pen!!!!

Of course, every house has to have a front porch with a pumpkin

Right house bottom has boards and also a pumpkin:

On the side of the house are additional vellum windows:

Left house bottom double multi windows with a pumpkin:
