  • 1/2-inch-thick, 4 X 8-foot plywood sheet
  • Circular saw
  • Two 8-foot-long pieces trim molding
  • Black spray paint
  • Foam trim roller

  • 12 deck straps and screws

  • Translucent floral spray paint: Glossy Woodtone

How To Make It:

  1. Using the tape measure, pencil, and long straightedge, measure and mark all pieces for the coffin on the plywood sheet. Cut out with the circular saw.
  2. Measure and cut trim-molding pieces to size. Spray-paint the deck straps black. Let dry.
  3. Use the foam trim roller to paint the coffin pieces and trim-molding pieces with dark gray. Let dry.
  4. Assemble the coffin using the deck straps. Apply the trim-molding pieces using the hammer and small brads.
  5. Spray the entire coffin randomly with Glossy Woodtone for an aged look.
