Altered Halloween Coffin Swap

Greetings, All:

I wanted to share my altered Halloween coffin I made for my swap partner with http://creatingthecraftylife.com/.  I was pleased with how it came out that I will have to make one for me also.

I bought the coffins at Michael's last year when they went on sale for like pennies (bought like 9).  Of course, you can still get them but they will cost you I think $2.99 or something like that.

It was really fun doing it.  I just painted, crackled it, covered the inside with red felt and the bottom too.  I made a mini coffin shape tag album to go inside it (I mean you can only put so much in the coffin anyway before it burst).  LOL.  I added embellishments to the outside of it.  The best way for you to have a vision is to show you the results. :)

Here is my altered coffin for swap.

I hope you enjoy the project and get to crafting.  I love Halloween and I need to do more.  I am doing a stick pin swap, ATC Halloween swap, and TP mini swap.  Will post those later.

Thanks for dropping by.
Enjoy the Journey, we only get one.

Live well, laugh often, love a lot.


  1. Howdy Jackie,
    Thanks for visiting my blogs. We are both in the CCL group. I am really excited about crafting. I am a newbie and need all the help I can get. I don't know what glues to use where and so much more.
    But, I know I will have fun as I learn.
    I kind of feel sorry for the ladies that may get my swap items, cause of my newness, but I hope they understand too.
    Take care
    xo Momma Rock
