Set the Scene for Halloween

Whether you’re planning a Halloween party or just love to decorate your home for Halloween, this haunted Halloween scene can help you create the right vibe. If you want some other Halloween decor ideas, you could make this “happy haunting” banner or this spooky little lantern. Oh and if you’re into copper wire projects, here’s a good one to try. Can you tell we love to decorate for the holidays? 

If you’re turning the lights off in your home for Halloween, you’ll definitely want some Halloween crafts that have lights in them. Also, if you’re having people over, you could even keep the lights off in just one area. Or maybe keep the lights off in your bathroom and decorate your countertops with the lantern we mentioned above and this glass dome. 

When you’re ready to make your own haunted Halloween scene, gather the tools and materials below. We recommend using a cutting machine, but you can also use scissors and a detail knife to cut the pattern. Either way, you’ll find both the printable PDF and SVG file below. Once you’ve cut your scene out, just follow the instructions listed here. 


  1. Cut design on a cutting machine or with scissors and a detail knife. 
  2. Glue along edge of vellum layer and press to close. Then glue tree layer around vellum.
  3. Glue along tabs included on haunted house, graveyard, and fence layers. Layer as shown in photo.
  4. Display papercut design in a glass dome or cloche. Add fairy lights or stack 3-4 LED tealights inside vellum layer.
