Haunted House Miniature Diorama Build!

Jen Schachter’s latest diorama project pushes the limits of laser cutter design with a bewitching haunted house miniature, just in time for Halloween! Jen shows us how she prototyped and designed this beautiful miniature that can stand on its own or fit inside a foam pumpkin. It also comes together in a way so that anyone can laser cut and assemble their own, and Jen shows how to make it extra striking with LED lights and foliage in a lantern enclosure!

Jen’s Haunted House laser cutter design and materials Glowforge catalog design, Etsy design file, Superglue, LED fairy string lights, LED tea lights, Foam pumpkin, 18-inch lantern, Hot knife for foam pumpkin carving.
