Instructions

STEP 1

Paint the outside of the wood coffin with black chalk paint. Let dry. Apply two coats. 

STEP 2

Paint the inside of the coffin. Let dry. 

STEP 3

Print off names from the computer in desired font and size to fit across the width of the coffin. 

STEP 4

Cut out names into individual strips that fit on the coffin. 

STEP 5

Cut pieces of graphite paper to fit across the coffin. 

STEP 6

Lay the graphite paper onto the coffin, then lay the name across the top and tape into place. 

STEP 7

Trace over the name with a pen or pencil, so that the graphite transfers onto the coffin. Remove paper. 

STEP 8

Use a small paintbrush dipped in Gold gilding to carefully trace over the penciled names. Let dry. 

STEP 9

Dip a small paintbrush into the gilding and splatter one end of the coffin.

 

Tip: Hold the dipped paintbrush in one hand over the coffin, take another paintbrush or a pencil and hit the middle of the first paintbrush to flick the paint onto the coffin. This will give you more control depending on how hard or soft you hit the brush with the gilding on it. 

STEP 10

Fill food safe baggies with candy and place inside each coffin.
