Altered Wooden Coffin

It's been almost a week since I made anything crafty and although I thought I was done with Halloween, I bought a couple of small wooden coffins on clearance at Michaels.

The coffin measures almost 5 inches tall and 2 1/2 inches wide and I just felt like altering at least one before I go onto Christmas crafts.

The first picture shows the plain wooden coffin. The first thing I did is paint it inside and out with black paint, even though most of it got covered with paper after.

I then covered the insides and outsides with paper from My Mind's Eye - Happy Haunting 6x6 paper pad. I edged all of the papers with Black Soot Distress Ink.

I then decided to edge around the bottom of the coffin with a black fence that I cut out of card stock with Martha Stewart's - Scary Fence punch. After that I coloured a few white flowers with Lindys Stamp Gang's Mango Mania - Flat Fabio Spray and made a stick pin using items from my stash. I'm really happy with how it turned out.

Here are a few pictures of the final coffin.

Below is a list of the supplies I used.
