My (visiting) son helped me renovate the Spooky House. It's last outing (years ago) to the Town Library ended with a certain amount of damages. A pile of loose parts on the flat roof and a written apology from library staff.
We (I) happened to have a small container of leftover bits and pieces in the cupboard-- enough to patch up the damages. The glow comes from a short strand of red mini lights a double painting. First a coat of a deep gold followed by a coat of a bright warm orange. Most of the items on the surface were collected over a two or three year time period. Halloween items are in short supply. There are a number of skeleton's hanging from the ceiling (a garland of skeleton's was a very happy find) and a small rubber rat in the open doorway.
TJ Maxx, Big Lots, JoAnn's and our local salvage spot Marden's provided all the materials. Under it all is a craft wooden dollhouse. The Original House Idea was Martha Stewart's. Her's was a gingerbread house. I'm sure it's still available to view on her website--going back 10 to 15 years. I originally made it out of a cardboard box. So--very "doable" for crafty persons or children.
Happy Halloween Crafting if you decide to give this a try.
