Introduction: Vampire Coffin

Picture of Vampire Coffin

Materials: 

- Carboard box
- Old newspapers
- White glue
- Acrylic paint
- Silk paper


I made this coffin for a gothic friend's birthday. I thought it would be a great idea to make a handmade coffin and then fill it with some spooky goth things.

I used a pattern of a coffin that I printed. I drew the pattern on a cardboard, I cut it and I built it up. When the coffin was ready I started to cover it with newspaper strips and white glue (mixed with water) to make it stronger. Finally I painted it. Then I glued the silk paper inside.

Now I want to make another one for me!

Didn't think that a vampire would like a coffin with a Crucifix? ;P

Hahaha wow! I never thought about this detail!!!! My god I'm a vampire killer!! Thanks for the observation... I think that my next coffin won't have a crucifix...

you could do an upside down cross (the sign on the devil) vampires would like that

Kozmicblues69 (author)Egret032016-07-22

Yeah, this is a great idea! Sure they would prefer and upside down cross than a normal cross.... So silly, but I never thought about this detail...

(Strange with the shape of the coffins however - haven't seen anything but parallel sides in what's used today).

Thanks! It will be very useful.

I'm still surprised that I never realized that after seeing and reading plenty of vampire things!

Ahh, you're just too young, when you're 700..800 years, it'll come naturally ;P

LOL You're right! See you in 500 years maybe :p
