Instructions

  1. Using a foam paintbrush, paint the coffin with black paint.  Allow to dry. Dampen the paper towel and scrunch into a ball.  Dip the ball into silver paint, tap off the excess and tap onto the bottom sides of the box.  Allow to dry.
  2. Coat the back and front of the Halloween image with Mod Podge, position onto the side of the coffin box, smooth any air bubbles with your finger and top coat with a layer of Mod Podge.
  3. Using hot glue, attached paper flowers and gems around the image.  Hot glue a piece of lace to the edge of the coffin and fill with crinkled papers.
  4. Decorate the bubbles by hot gluing paper and tulle around the bottle.  Add embellishments like a paper flower to the center and a google eye to the top.
