STEP 2: Prepare your haunted house template

To get started, prepare your template by cutting out all the pieces on the coloured construction paper required and set aside.

STEP 3: Colour the sky with pastels

Grab a white piece of construction paper or cardstock and draw a circle for the moon with yellow oil pastels. Trace the edges of that circle with orange pastel and then use your fingertips to smudge the colours together.

Use different shades of orange, red, and yellow to finish filling in the paper. Make sure to colour them from dark to light in order to create a nice fade. Smudge them together until you're happy with the result!

STEP 4: Draw a border

Next, draw a border around the edges of the paper with black oil pastel. Blend the black pastel towards the middle of the paper.

STEP 5: Glue the template pieces

Once you've done that - it's time to glue your template pieces! Start with the fence and glue it towards the bottom of the paper.

Next, glue the house on top of the fence (fence not pictured).
