Baba Yaga style walking house

Did This for the Halloween Advent Swap.

Started as one of those $1 papermache birdhouses from craft stores (I bought it for .25 at a thrift store years ago). The house is covered with paper clay. The legs are paper clay over wire. The book is a kids board book covered paper and painted with gold. Embellished with a string of autumn leaves, miniature gravestones & Tim Holtz bones & eyeball.

I did not - but it definitely fits the criteria! I was so grateful for the swap as it kept my mind busy.

Love it so much! I was just contemplating doing a collage of Baba Yaga’s hut for Drawtober’s “Folklore” prompt this week. This looks so awesome it may just inspire me to actually make my collage.

I love this little walking house. So quaint.

I have a baba yaga costume and chicken house for trunk or treat, but cancelled this year. But maybe for zoom Halloweens!
