Salt Dough Haunted Houses

"How cute, I mean creepy, are these salt dough haunted houses? Prop them on a bookshelf with some faux spiderwebs, glue them to a sturdy wreath form, or add them to a Halloween Terrarium. Happy haunting! Using salt, dough, water, and a bit of paint you can make your own spooky salt dough haunted houses to display for Halloween. These salt dough haunted houses are similar to our clay Halloween village but in a darker palette using different modelling material. Both of which are fun ways to decorate a mantel or shelf for Halloween! Spend the afternoon having a spooky craft day with friends or family and make your own haunted houses. "
