You can make these cute little coffins out of craft paper and decorate them how you please. I fill them up with candy to hand out to my friends for Halloween. Trick or treat at any age!

I've added the coffin template for you to print out, cut out, and trace onto your black craft paper. You can resize it to make them smaller or larger. I used mini candy skulls from the dollar shop as decor on the coffin. You can find them in the Halloween section.

Total Time: 45 minutes


  • coffin template print out
  • craft paper (black, white, patterned)
  • pencil
  • scissors
  • bonefolder
  • thin double-sided tape (like Tear Tape)
  • pen
  • mini skulls


  1. Cut out the coffin template and trace it onto the black craft paper with a pencil. Draw the fold lines just like they are on the template.
  2. Cut out the 2 coffin pieces.
  3. Using your bonefolder or something like a credit card, firmly fold the paper where denoted by hard lines.
  4. Flip over the coffin pieces after folding. Add double-sided tape on the portions to match this photo.
  5. Fold the pieces into each other and press to stick.
  6. This is what the base and lid will look like.
  7. Cut out a strip of patterned paper and place on the coffin lid. Cut to size, then stick on with tape.
  8. Cut out a thinner strip of white craft paper to place on the patterned piece. I like to fold the edge over to make a cutting guide.
  9. Write your message or name on the white paper, then tape onto the patterned paper.
  10. Tape a skull onto the top.
  11. Fill the coffin with treats.
