Are you looking for new ideas and ways to decorate at Halloween time? Halloween is one of my favorite holiday’s and I love to go over the top! Adding new Halloween decorations to my house while looking for new ideas is a fun past time of mine. In fact deciding to create a coffin out of old wood flooring that I had was easy for me. I knew that I needed to add something to it because it was very plain looking. Finding this darling saying from Dexter Kozen made the perfect addition to put on my coffin.
To make a Wooden Coffin Decorative Halloween sign you will need:
2 wood slats cut 3″ by 24″ (you could use wood fence slats)
2 additional wood slats
personal cutting machine
first create a paper template to trace onto your wood flooring slats or fencing. My template measures 24″ long by 12″ at its widest point. Next you will measure and cut 2 of your wood slats 24″ long, using a cop saw. Place the 24″ long slats next to each other along with 2 more wood slats on each side of the 24″ wood slats. Lay your coffin template over the 4 wood slats and trace the angles over the 2 outer wood slats. Using a jig saw cut the 2 outer wood slats to size and design.
Next you will use gorilla wood glue to glue together the 4 wood slats. Let the glue completely dry on the Coffin. You can also nail and add 2 tack strips on the back for extra stability. Sand all edges of your coffin. You can paint or decorate your coffin as desired.
I chose to cut this saying a saying from “Dexter Kozen ” using your personal cutting machine type in the saying pick desired fonts and cut onto white vinyl. Weed out vinyl and apply saying onto the center of your coffin.
I ended up making 8 of these cute coffins to give away as prizes at our annual Halloween party. How will you decorate your coffin?
