I have been a decorating nut for this upcoming Halloween. My mission: to make the best Halloween decorations for the cheapest price. On my third shopping trip to Michael's for the week (there is always one more thing I need) I picked up a wooden coffin for $0.99. I thought this would be an easy project to paint the coffin and put something scary inside. When I was at the Dollar Tree, I found a pack of three rats which would fit perfect inside the coffin. I completed this project in a half hour. The total cost was $2.00! All I did was paint the coffin, let dry and put the rats inside. I now have a scary Halloween decoration that adds just a touch more detail to my collection!
