Our box of junk modelling is beginning to overflow and has been begging to be used. I decided to use a couple of boxes and loo rolls to create a junk model haunted mansion for a themed small world play.
Make sure you follow my Halloween board on Pinterest for more ideas. Don’t forget to save the pin for later.
I used a set of acrylic pens to decorate, but chalk pens/chalk/markers/ other paint will also work.
To start with I figured out what boxes and other things I would need to make my junk model haunted mansion.
Next I painted it all black and left it to dry.
Once the paint had dried, I glued all the pieces together to make the mansion. It was only as I was about to glue on one of the side pieces that I wondered if it would balance properly without falling over.
Once everything was in place, I drew a rough outline of all the details, before going over it all in acrylic pens.
I left the designing of the interior of the house to YC. That sort of thing is right up her street.
Finally when everything was done, I added a few wooden figures and pumpkins and set it up on the side for anybody to play with.
