Halloween Coffin Candy Dish

I am having SO MUCH FUN with these paper mache coffins!  This is my latest (check out my post featuring the BONE COLLECTOR if you missed my first coffin) and this one’s a candy dish.  Or, if you prefer the “trick” side instead of the “treat” side of Halloween, then fill this baby up with… Continue reading Halloween Coffin Candy Dish

Giant Apothecary Cabinet – Part 4 of 5

Oh My Gosh – this thing really looks big now that all the sections are glued together.  I always have problems with this part, I know what the final measurements will be but somehow I can never truly translate that in my imagination as to how it will really look when it’s “made”.  So, as… Continue reading Giant Apothecary Cabinet – Part 4 of 5
