My "Tricked Out" Coffin October 18, 2011 23:42
Today I’m going to share another Halloween project I completed. I have been wanting to make a coffin for some time now.
I started out with a purchased box from Micheal’s and painted it black. I cut 2 flourishes out and added red Stickles to them and set aside to dry. Next I worked on my Rosette Flower. I cut the Rosette, and a scallop circle. I had some extra webbing around the house since I had been decorating and hot glued it to the Rosette. I attached my scalloped circle and applied some Ranger Liquid Pearls and set aside to dry. I added some Stickles to the roses and worked on the little spiders next. They were also a left over decoration and I was wondering what I could add to them, so I put some little rhinestones on them.
While all that was drying I started on the inside. I cut my Little Vampire from the Halloween Palz
and assembled him. I chalked him but you can’t see it in the photo. Once assembled, I added some Stickles to the cape and then to his hair and set aside to dry. I cut the spider and the bat from the Cuttlebug Dies. I added some Stickles to them also and set aside. I glued some webbing to the inside of the coffin.
The Eat Drink sentiment is cut from the DCWV Midnight Spell Stack. I used pop dots and applied it to the inside of the coffin. My spider finally dried about 1 hour later and I stuck him to the coffin with a pop dot, and then added some additional webbing. I glued the bat to the inside of the coffin, added a spider, then I made a brace for the vampire and attached it to him and hot glued it to the inside of the coffin. Before attaching him I did his face.
I applied some ribbon to the bottom part of the coffin using double sided tape. Next, I finished the Rosette by attaching the roses and the spiders, then hot gluing it to the top of the coffin.
The Vampire is suppose to be holding a bat, but because he is only 2
inches tall my Expression would not cut the bat properly. :(
