Haunted House by Nicolle Kramer using Graphic 45 Happy Haunting

Altered Wooden "Haunted House"
Designed By: Nicolle Kramer
Featuring:Graphic 45 Happy Hauntings

When it comes to paper I typically create layouts. I had this wooden house laying around for about a year now and was inspired to finally alter it. I purchased it on clearance in the wood section at Michael's. I think it was something like $2.00.  I thought hey why not make it a haunted house? It's a great addition to my Halloween decor. As if I don't have enough.  This is the house in its complete alter. I also included close ups and simple directions at the bottom of this post. It's a bit lengthy but I wanted to show all the details.


Here's what the house looked like originally.

I painted all the visible parts black before adding the papers.

This is a close up of the roof. I used plain orange card stock,inked,corrugated myself and inked the edges for a distressed look.

The covered both sides of house with patterned paper.


    This house was really simple and fun to alter. First I measured all the openings (rooms) and chose the patterned papers I wanted on each of the back walls. I then fussy cut images from different papers in this collection to add to each room.  I also used card stock stickers and chipboard elements to embellish with. I filled Tim Holtz corked vials with different colors of glitter and embellished them with word stickers found on the card stock sticker sheet.  Lastly for an added spooky touch I put a little bit of store bought web. You can use as much or as little for desired effect. I chose to use less so you can see all the details inside each room.  


  1. Great project Nicolle! What a fantastic idea!!

  2. I love what Nicolle did with her "bargain-basement" find! Very inventive and very good use of fussy cutting! Just beautiful, and spooky!
