Thorn Cove Abode Monster House

Halloween House Inspiration

My Halloween Monster House is a GIANT hit in my family! {ha} For the last several years, I have been turning our house into a “boarded up halloween house.” While I still love the look and how simple the DIY is for Halloween, I was ready to change it up. 

Can I be really honest? When I saw retail stores start selling the false boards for halloween, that made me feel like I needed to go a different route. I didn’t want to be mainstream and too “amazon” so back to the drawing board I went. Our entire family likes the movie, Monster House, so when I decided to try this idea the kids were super excited to have a monster house of their very own. I tease them that you never know when it might gobble you up.

How I Created Our Monster House

By the way, this entire project cost me right around $100 dollars {I thought that was a pretty great price for the final result!}

Alright, here’s how I created our very own Halloween Monster House!

I grabbed four polywall utility panels from Lowes. It was the most inexpensive option that was still waterproof and easy to work with. One panel was used to create the giant eyeball and the other three pieces for the teeth. I cut them in half to get two rows of teeth from one panel and that would cover the porch.

Monster Face

To create the eye, I used as much of the 4×8 panel as I could to get the biggest eye cutout possible. I traced a couple of circles as a guide using a DIY drawing compass with string and a pencil. Then I just used leftover latex paint I had stashed in the barn to paint it. Because I wasn’t sure how this paint would hold up on the panels I went ahead and spray painted a clear coat over the top for extra coverage. {See how Sevi and I painted the eyeball here.} The clear coat will also help them not fade as quickly in the direct sun the front of my house receives. 

Sevi and I painting the Monster Eye together!

For the teeth, I knew I wanted fangs right over the front entrance to frame that area {and add a little more fun to our coming and going.} So I drew the fangs first and then traced out some smaller teeth. Even though I was drawing the teeth freely, I did want to make the whole row look cohesive. So after tracing out and cutting the first panel of teeth, I laid it out on the other panels to serve as my template and traced them (with the exception of the long fangs.) I only wanted those long fangs on the front, center row of teeth.

Todd’s Monster House Additions

After I had the teeth cut out, I decided adding black for the gums would help them stand out against my white house {and look a little more intentionally like teeth.} I painted and also spray painted those pieces with a clear coat to prevent fading or running of paint in the weather.

Can you see Todd’s little paw prints on the paint??

If you look close enough, you can probably still see Todd’s footprints where he walked through the paint and literally transferred paw prints everywhere {that dang cat.} I have black cat prints on the whites of the teeth and on my porch! Luckily, I was able to get his little prints off my porch, but the teeth still have some faded prints where it would’t come out completely. It sort of looks like our Monster House needs to brush it’s teeth. 😜

After I cut and painted, I just stapled the teeth to the house using about five staples per panel!

Eye See You

For the Monster’s Eye, I should have purchased a thicker foam board that wouldn’t flop around in the breeze, but here we are. The utility panels worked perfectly for the teeth, but not as great for the eye. The eye is only attached in two places, the top and bottom. So it felt like the left and right sides were not as secure.

The back of the Monster Eye is secured similar to a kite.

I was pretty certain, and sort of afraid, the corners of the eye would eventually curl inwards due to weather and just overall weight. My work around was to brace the back of eye with thin scraps of wood in “t” shape, sort of like a kite. In hindsight, a thicker piece of panel or foam board would have eliminated this bracing step.

I attached the eye to the house with an eye hook around a screw which is located in the top of my window trim all year long. I use those same screws to hang my Christmas wreaths each year so they are always there. No one can see them, so I just leave it all year.

Additionally, I have the eye secured with rope from the center of the “t” on the backside. I tied it off around the center, pulled it into my windows and then shut the window on top of the rope. This is the exact way I secured my boarded up window frames. Hasn’t failed me {yet}.

Monster House Close Up

Monster House, but Even Better!

I have always wanted lighting on our house, but have never had it! Pretty outdoor lighting is so magical and adds so much ambiance. Every home we’ve lived in has had a pretty scary, steep pitched roof. So, lighting has just never been an option for us. While in the process of creating our Monster House, the most amazing thing happened!

Permanent Lighting with Gemstone Lights and Tri State Lighting

For the past two years I have researched companies that will install and uninstall Christmas Lights on your home. The price was just too much to justify so I had almost given up. I had heard of permanent lighting while doing said research and I came across Gemstone Lights, a permanent smart exterior lighting company. I called and got a quote and guess what?? It wasn’t much more than having just Christmas lights installed and uninstalled. So, for not much more money, I could have lighting all year round with way cooler features and options!

Permanent Lighting installed by Tri State Lighting

Gemstone Lights can be installed on any home, are completely customizable and are rated to last around 23 years! What?! No one from my family has to get on a ladder each holiday (you’re welcome Mark!) In SC, our Authorized Dealer and Installer is Tri State Lighting and they had an opening before Halloween! I was STOKED!!

Tri State Lighting

I cannot say enough good things about Tri State! They truly went above and beyond. The install was seamless and you can’t even see the little puck lights unless you know what you’re looking for. Tri State even went as far as to color match paint to cover the wiring!

Since the Gemstone Lights are “smart”, you have complete control over multiple color options, timers and even setting which lights you want on and off at certain times. Everything is controlled by a free app which includes pre-loaded folders with customizable settings for all holidays. Who knew right?!

Best Halloween Ever

I really love how the Monster House turned out! It was also so fun to do with the kids. I’m so happy with the permanent lighting and amazed that I have it on my house. I’m so excited just thinking about Christmas now too!!

Tell me in the comments what you think of this year’s Halloween Monster House! Did you know all of this about permanent lighting??

My biggest memory from childhood, walking down the road coming home from school to see my mom in our front window putting up holiday decor. My sister and I grew up with just our mom, so not a lot of money but holidays were so magical just from her decorating that front window from mostly things she made. She passed away 6 months ago. Love these memories I have of her decorating that window.

    Ingenious idea on the monster house. You have the perfect focal peak for the eye.
    I didn’t know of permanent lighting either, so cool. My husband would love to not crawl up on to get ours up every year at Christmas. We like on a street dubbed “Candy Cane Lane” at Christmas time, tours come around on it and most people decorate it up good so we have to.

  48. Della says:

    Absolutely love this monster house!! Such a fun idea. Also love the willingness of your Dad and your shenanigans 😜

  56. Devan Whitten says:

    This house is perfect! Todd looks proud in the front porch of his monster house too!

    Thanks for sharing the information about permanent lighting. I know a couple of people in TN that have it but hadn’t gotten the chance to see the lights being off to see if they are noticeable. I love how it all turned out!

  74. Dolly Mace/Dreams of a Primitive Life says:

    It turned out so good! I am glad you decided to still use your boards for the windows though. But the lights make this monster really “light up”. But, no kidding having the kids help makes it so worth it in the end.

  75. Teresa says:
