Back again with my project for this month's challenge at Crafty Calendar! The theme this month is 'Halloween', and I decided to make something other than a I made a coffin! It's made from card and painted black, nailheads all around the edges of the lid (wouldn't want anything to get out ) and a little wooden ghostie on top.

But wait...the lid opens and out jumps this terrible scary Drac Lewis...hope no one has nightmares!!
He's attached to the base of the coffin with a black paper 'spring', so when the lid is lifted he pops up, I think it will amuse the granddaughters! (Especially when I fill the 'coffin' with sweeties!)
There are some gorgeous spooky creations from the rest of the DT to be enjoyed by visiting the challenge blog, and the prize this month is a $12 voucher from our lovely sponsor Di's Digis, so what are you waiting for  ...get cracking on those Halloween makes!
Thanks for visiting today
