The Halloween season is approaching! Get out the pumpkins and bats. Here is a home decor tutorial fit for a king… a vampire king!
This project was inspired by Batbones’ project so check this video out if you are unsure about anything. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=97MU9YSAA-8&t=408s
Wood (I used two by fours, plywood, and scrap wood)
Metal Brackets (90 degrees)
Screw Driver/ or Drill
*optional* – wire / hook for hanging
1st – Trace a coffin shape the size you would like on your biggest piece of wood.
2nd – Use a hand saw to cut along the outline
3rd – Stretch the fabric across the coffin cut out and staple to the back
4th – Next, line up wood around the edges, mark and cut pieces to create a border
5th – Paint your wood pieces black
6th – Attach the border. I clamped the outside pieces down to hold everything in place. Drill little holes through the back of the coffin wood border before putting in the screws.
7th – Measure straight across the coffin for shelf length, and cut more wood according to the measurements.
8th – Use metal brackets to hold up the shelves (I had to clamp mine and hit it with a hammer to fit the weird angles in the coffin.
*I didn’t hang up my shelf but if you’d like, add wire or a hook to the back of your coffin
