Crochet Haunted House

FeaturedContest WinnerContest Winner
Here is my crochet haunted house, with a ghost, witch, zombie (er half zombie) and skeleton, plus a spooky tree, some pumpkins and an ominous figure in the window. 

To bring this scary scene alive, I added some special effects, there are lights inside the house and in the pumpkins and the ghost glows in the dark. When you press on the coffin it plays the monster mash.  Likewise, when you press on the zombie he laughs maniacally.  And with the help of a servo motor the witch and ghost chase each other in a circle above the roof of the house.
