I feel funny posting this after all the beautiful purses, but seeing as how it’s October now, I thought I’d get it up.
I posted this last year, but it was the day before Halloween so it didn’t help anyone. Here is a little bit of the post again to help in any fun party planning you might have in the works! Sorry if you think it’s disgusting. It is.
This is not my idea—you can find a lot of ideas like this online, but my awesome sister had a really great Halloween party for all the cousins last year and made a coffin like this.
Dillon and I hosted a Halloween party at our house for some friends. My boys wanted to make a Haunted House in their room. It was tricky with the space we had to work with, but it was so fun to make! The coffin was the last, and BEST, part of the Haunted House.
Here’s how you can make one. Spray paint a couple boxes black (unless you have one long box). My sister used both sides of the box, but since mine would be sitting on my kids’ bunk bed, I could only use the one side. Cut some holes out with a serrated knife so you can feel what’s inside! If using both sides of the boxes, you don’t need so many on one side.
I taped a square of black felt above each hole. Make sure your bowls of body parts are far enough back that the felt or napkins or whatever you use don’t get stuck on the bowls so they can see what they are feeling.
Now what is inside? Most of these were the same as what my sister used in the coffin at her party. Here is what they all represent in the coffin:
Cauliflower: Brain (I didn’t even bother steaming it—it was still disgusting)
Popcorn Kernels and Candy Corn: Teeth—including the vampire teeth that are the candy corn
Peeled Tomato: Heart
Cooked pasta: Guts
Dried assorted pasta: Bones
The BEST part is that my boys hid under their bunk beds and scared people right as they were feeling the toes. It was so much fun to practice what they would do the night before, and they loved scaring the other kids so much. _______________________________________
