I started off with a paper mache coffin that I purchased at the dollar store. I traced the coffin onto chipboard and cut out for the pages of the mini album.
The outside of the coffin was altered with wood pieces that were applied with texture paste and then painted with multiple colors to provide that aged look. Everything was propped up on a wood base and the wooden base was textured using sand, rocks and floral moss.
The tree was made using grapevine wire from the craft store and painted then Ideaology spiders were hung from the tree. All those pesky hot glue strands are perfect for this project because they provide a spider web effect.
Ideaology bones, skelletons, apothecary vials word band and lantern are added to enhance project.
The inside of the coffin was decoupaged with a Halloween napkin. This is one side of the mini album.
This is the other side of the album. It will hold at least 30 photos.
I hope you enjoyed this Halloween post... Hope this didn't scare you with all the steps and photos, it's quite easy and allows your creativity to go wild. For your pleasure I have a Snapguide tutorial below. Park your brooms at the door, sit down for a spell my pretties and enjoy.
