Dollar store haunted village
I have always wanted a haunted village, last weekend we made it happen. I saw this technique on the36thavenue.com and decided to give it a go. First we hit up our local dollar tree and picked up a set of their mini christmas village called Cobblestone Corners.
Second step was to paint them all flat black. I used the cheapest black spray paint I could find.
Third step was to hit them with some white dry brushing and presto, haunted village. It was amazing to see how creepy some of the figures turned out. A happy fireman, once painted, looks like a axe wielding maniac. A precious father son shoveling snow turns into two people burying a body. Some children bringing home a Christmas tree became a group of young vandals.
