Junk Model Haunted Mansion for Small World Play

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.

To make your junk model haunted mansion you will need:

  • Shoe boxes
  • Loo and kitchen roll inner tubes
  • Black paint
  • Paint brush
  • Hot glue gun
  • Black paper
  • Pens*

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.
