Coffins & Gargoyles! New Halloween Items, Sale & FREE Gift!

Filed under Halloween, Miniatures, Shannon Cooper

There’s a fun Halloween project today: Little Coffin Hutch by Design Team Member Shannon Cooper! Plus some NEW Halloween items (so many gargoyles)!

But first, a related GIFT: Tiny Black Coffin Accordion Book FREE with all orders placed today through Tuesday (ends at midnight August 16, 2022)! Between Shannon’s cute coffin art (and some new coffin embellishments below), I thought a coffin-shaped gifty would be fitting.

Plus I made a new collection from the supply list from Shannon’s project — and put it all on Sale plus a few extra coffins! More info below!

Little Coffin Hutch by Shannon Cooper!

Wow! Really. The coffin shrine is fairly simple: A niche shrine, with a solid back that could also be hinged as a cover. But Shannon turned it into a piece of 1:12 scale furniture! And she has a tutorial on her blog post with all kinds of info (making the shelves, wrapping the edges of the coffin…).

So here’s a bit of text from that post as intro:

Eeek, Halloween crafting is in full swing! My entire craft area is covered in bats, skulls, spooky paper, black cats, glitter… I think all of the Halloween stuff I own is scattered across two tables (save for a teensy workspace where the cat sometimes sits).

I finished a mini project recently using Alpha Stamps new Little Niche Shrine – Coffin. Leslie knows how much I love the niche shrines, so she sent one to play around with. (it is also possible I begged for one, whatever!)

I covered the sides of the shrine and added two shelves to make a miniature hutch to use in a future project. There’s a faux drawer and spindly feet, too. A brief run-down for adding sides and shelves is down below.

The hutch is filled with a handful of retro orange and black goodies like a 1:12 Brass Picture Frame painted purply-black with a sweet witch image, re-covered Thinner Mini Books, a fun black cat bunting from the Witchy Mirror Trims Collage Sheet, and a Tiny Ceramic Vampire Bead.

More info and pics of some of those tiny items are below. Plus a little tour of other bits and bobs.

I’ve put ALL of Shannon’s supply list in a new collection and created a discount code for 20% off those supplies! More info on the sale is below!

Starting off on this tour as gently as possible: the Small Baroque Cast Metal Wall Frame! I love the squirrelly details (yes, that is a technical term) and it looks great painted black. Check the wide photo below to see the coffin in a room box, which explains the busy paper you can see behind the metal frame in the close-up at left. You can also see a bit of a rocking chair that Shannon painted black.

Back to the metal frame: that tiny (yet enthusiastic) portrait is from the Halloween Pendants Collage Sheet.


I’ve zoomed way in to view “just” the top shelf and there’s so many items to see.

A RIP Tombstone Polymer Clay Slice and a Tiny Ceramic Vampire Bead are over on the left side of the shelf (and also shown in pics left and right). There’s also the black cat bunting Shannon mentioned, tiny jars of beads, and a skull bead. Oh, and you can just make out the crazy ’60s font of “Trick or Treat” on the front of a tiny folding paper bag on the next shelf down!


New Halloween Items!

I did mention gargoyles (swoon)! Not only those, but the tiny dragons would be a good substitute (if painted black) for the dragons in the recent Witches Apothecary Chest artwork.

NEW: Coffin Hutch SALE

This is a coupon sale that includes all the supplies from Shannon’s fab project above — plus a bonus! The paper Shannon used to cover the coffin has sold out, so I’ve added the Color Vibe Woods 6×8 Paper Pad to the sale collection!

More bonus items added to the sale: since the Tiny Black Coffin Accordion Book (the free gift item) was designed to fit three different book covers, I’ve added all 3 of those to the sale too! (See the first row of photos below).

Use coupon LITTLE-COFFIN when checking out to get an additional 20% off on EVERYTHING in this collection! That’s 20% off beyond current sale prices!
