Making Your Own Halloween Coffin!
With Halloween not very far away, I thought it was a good time to show another DIY project. Have you ever wondered how these crafty people make a coffin for Halloween? I asked a good friend of mine, Anne to show me how she made hers.It turns out it is not a very hard or complicated project to do. You will be able to get your house looking spooky in no time at all.
A little bit about Anne – she has a love of DIY, scrapbooking, cooking and decorating. You are able to find more of her projects on Pinterest Lady Annabelles Emporium and on Instagram lady_annabelles_emporium.
– Cardboard box
– Hot glue gun
– Ruler and pen
– Black paint
– Nail polish
– Enamel dots
Open out box and draw out coffin design
Cut out and duplicate to make a top and bottom
Measure and cut out side panels
Using hot glue join together bottom and all edges
Paint the coffin black all over
Add character and paint, I added extra cardboard box the the corners of the coffin and top. I also used the extra cardboard to make a hand and applied hot glue to give it a creepy texture.
Add details to spooky designs – here I painted black and wiped away excess paint to reveal the design of hand and painted nails with nail polish
Add any finishing touches, here I coloured the enamel dots black to make it look like nail heads
I love how the coffin worked out. Thank you Anne for showing us how to make a coffin for Halloween. Would like to see more of Anne’s DIY’s, crafts or scrapbooking, you can find her on Pinterest Here and Instagram Here!
