BOO!!! By Liz

  Hi all, I just couldn't resist this awesome MDF coffin with Handles that is available online from

Calico Craft Parts, it comes with a removable lid which is fabulous for holding sweets etc too,

I chose to place the lid horizontally to the coffin so I could have a plastic skeleton from my stash popping out,

I added some texture on the sides of the coffin with some texture paste and a stencil, then when dry I gave a thick layer of heavy black Gesso, when dry again I went over in places with some silver wax,

Meanwhile I took some bones and gave them a light coating of white Gesso, then adhered them here and there on the coffin sides,

On the lid I used another stencil with some silver texture paste, then when dry I went over the edges with some more of the wax, I glued a skull and crossbones to the lid to finish it off,

I added one of the spiders as if it's crawling around the box, with a small bat on a piece of acetate to appear as though flying,

I love making Halloween projects and hope you may have a try too,
