Christine McConnell has set the bar even higher on decorating a home for Halloween. This artist/baker/photographer extraordinaire has turned her parents’ home into a virtual trick-or-treat monster. I’m sure all the kids will never forget knocking on this door!

Being a big fan of Halloween-themed movies, she was particularly inspired by the film, “Monster House.”

In the past she has created large bats and ghosts, and even baked a cake modeling the house. For this project, she was going to have to set her sights a bit higher.

The intensive project took this tirelessly inspired artist four 12 hour days, and a good bit of painted foam-core insulation board.

I may be too old to trick or treat now, but I’d play the part just to see this house! If you dig what Christine has done, you can check out her site for her upcoming book, “Deceptive Desserts.”
