I could not find a thread about this topic, so if there is one somewhere please let me know.

I am working on a Halloween Village this year, mostly consisting of the 2014 & 2015 Tombstone Corners figures and buildings obtained from the Dollar Tree. So far my terrain is very simple, nothing fancy. I would like to improve the look of my humble village and I will be posting pics here soon.

Post pics and/or tips here with regards to crafting scale Halloween villages.:)

Also, I have seen other paint and customize buildings and figurines, so feel free to discuss and post pics.

Really, all I have used so far is orange construction paper for grass, black paper for a single city street in the front, brown construction paper with black lines and creme pumpkin candies with green strings as a pumpkin patch, and lastly a black poster board with a printed and cut out moon from Majora's Mask.

What I really like about scale Halloween villages is I get to create an elaborate yard haunt of sorts for way less $ and back work.

I love what you've done so far. It looks awesome! My DT village from the past two years is residing in my china cabinet because I really haven't found an ideal place for it yet.

One project I'd really like to tackle is creating a haunted village of paper mache. I'd love to keep it the same scale as the DT village but that means some very meticulous work, so may go with a larger scale.

Paper mache Haunted house

Here is a paper mache house in progress. Don't know if I have what it takes to go smaller, but would be interesting to try.
