Welcome to my blog! Thank you for stopping by to visit!
Today I want to share with you my version of the Halloween wreath made from the Coffin Treat Boxes found on page 53 of the 2019 Holiday Catalogue. I cased the wreath shown in the Holiday catalogue but added just a touch of my own flare.
To make the wreath it took 24 of the coffin treat boxes (2 packages). The boxes themselves are very simple to put together as they come pre-cut and scored for you. Just add some glue, fold and presto … a fun and spooky coffin box!!
I didn’t want to leave the boxes plain black as they came so I ran 12 of the lids through my Big Shot using the Stylish Scroll Embossing Folder before I assembled them.
For 6 of the remaining boxes I added spider web patterned paper from the Monster Bash Designer Series Paper, To do this I assembled the base of one of the Coffin Treat boxes and traced it onto the patterned paper and cut it out … this fit perfectly onto the lid of the treat box!!
After all of the Coffin Treat Boxes were assembled I used a sponge dauber and my Delicata Metallic Ink pad in Silvery Shimmer and distressed the edges and a bit across the top of all 24 lids, The next step was to glue the lids onto the coffin base and then to adhere all of the coffins together to form the wreath. I found that a hot glue gun worked best for this step.
To finish it off I added a focal point. I tied bows using Basic Black Satin Ribbon, Basic Black Scalloped Edge Ribbon and Black Glittered Organdy Ribbon. In the center of the large bows I added a Haunted House image cut from the Monster Bash Designer Series Paper, distressed the edges with Tuxedo Black Memento ink and attached it with Stampin’ Dimensionals to a Starburst punched out of Basic Black.
And my project is complete! I think this will be a frightful addition to my front door leading up to Halloween.Products Used
