I’m so excited about my Dollar Tree doll house haunted houses. It turned out so cool!!

Mmmkay my fellow crafters. So I have to be totally honest here, and I’m trying to be just that and not negative, but this has been the most MISERABLE craft I have ever made!


The acrylic paint did not hold well to the doll houses. Had to touch it up multiple times and let it dry over and over. I had a very hard time getting the houses to glue together and on to the glass trivet I used. I totally messed up how I put the house together and had to fix it.. TWICE.


Nothing went right for this project, and I just wanted to give it up. I actually threw it in the trash and took it back out an hour later.


I’ve thrown out projects before that just didn’t seem to work out, but something about this challenge kept pushing me to finish it. Sooo it’s far from perfect, it’s lopsided and hot glue everywhere and paint chipped in spots, but…here it is!


At least through Halloween, it will stay out of the trash


I wanted to share my story with you all just as a reminder, especially to newer crafters such as myself, within the past year anyway…that at times you will be challenged beyond what you think you can accomplish. You will get frustrated. Have angry tears throw stuff out. But the key is to never ever give up! These challenges are a good thing. They keep you pushing forward and trying new things and bettering your talents. You’ve got this!! I promise lol!
