Disney Imagineering has launched a series of “Disney Paper Parks” DIY projects on the Disney Parks Blog, and their newest craft is perfect for spooky season!
The Happy Haunts edition of Disney Paper Parks is a fun way to build your own printable 3D Haunted Mansion inspired by the attraction in Disneyland right from home. Disney Imagineering has included a full set of instructions with everything you need to construct the four formal columns that make up the attraction’s exterior facade, including the balconies, porches, cupolas, and even the weathervane. It really is incredible that creating such a fun DIY project can be done right from home using just ordinary printer paper!
If you happen to have completed previous releases of Disney Paper Parks, you may have the portrait chamber or Madame Leota’s seance room as both were released in parts three and four. (If not, click this link to head over to the Disney Parks Blog and find earlier versions of the project.) The full series Disney Paper Parks: Happy Haunts Edition includes everything you need to create Haunted Mansion inspired artwork at home, so we definitely recommend checking it out.
Imagineers Stephanie Jazmines and Amy Young, who created this craft, recommend printing the sheets at their actual size (if you scale them to fit the page you may run into some issues.) And if you are doing any of these activities with little ones, be sure to keep adult supervision nearby.
Grab your printer and your scissors and get to building your very own Disneyland Haunted Mansion! (This is the perfect craft to display alongside pumpkins and other Halloween decorations, so we’d try building this one soon with the holiday coming right up!)
