Last week, one of my design clients hired me to plan her daughters Spooktacular birthday party! Our birthday girl wants a Halloween themed event. This week, I have been working on the invitations. I think that a great invitation gets guests excited for the party & sets the tone for the event! I hope the guests are excited when they receive her birthday invitation in this glittered coffin....
The boxes started out like this! I found these unfinished wood coffins at Michaels. When you open the lid, a creepy & scary laugh greets you ( I think the kids will love it! ) I painted the entire coffin black & added a final coat of glitter. I made pinwheels for the top of the coffin to add a little dimension.
Inside the box, I placed the invitation scroll nestled within candy corn & a black glittered spider.
I am considering adding a small banner that reads, "Open if you dare" across the pinwheel. Do you think it needs it or should I leave it the way it is? Either way, I think the kids will LOVE opening this invitation!
