It’s time for another haunting papercraft! Today I have a simple, but spooky design to share with you that is sure to get you into the Halloween “spirit.” All you need is three sheets of paper and a little cutting machine magic to conjure this mini paper Halloween village into the land of the living.

After making a little wrap-around Christmas village last year and seeing how lovely that turned out, I just knew that I had to replicate the idea for Halloween. And I’m really glad I did! While pine trees and picturesque houses are all well and good, there is nothing quite like a good old-fashioned creepy tree and a few crooked mansions.
All I did to make the craft was cut out the design, glue the three pieces together, roll them up, and connect the end with a little piece of foam tape. If you’re unsure how to connect these three pieces, here is a picture of the order in which they go.
I found the dome used in this project at Ikea, but there are lots of similar ones on Amazon, if you want to replicate this display! The dome I have is 7.75″ tall with a base that is just under 4″ in diameter.
Even if you don’t have a glass dome on hand, this design can work on its own! By adding a couple of folds in the design and crimping the whole thing, you can make a really nice little silhouette display piece for your mantle. If you do it that way, I’d suggest making two sets, so that the designs can balance each other out.
I use Adobe Illustrator for all my designs, and a Cricut Maker to bring my creations to life. For tips on creating fun paper cuts like this one, see the FAQ section on my website. Also, be sure to check out the other fun freebies available on my blog!
