HALLOWEEN COFFIN STANDS


Other Coffin Stand Options

Plaster Pedestals
Plaster Gallery Inc. manufactures a square plaster pedestal that is great for displaying a Halloween coffin on. This particular pedestal measures sixteen inches high, making the lid of the coffin about twenty-seven inches above the ground when the coffin is set on top. Just remember, you will need two, one for each end of the coffin. Their plaster products use only the highest grade of plaster for all their castings and no fillers are added. Using two of these is our favorite method to display our toe pincher coffin.

Most plaster pedestals such as this one come un-painted, allowing you to paint and detail them to your particular tastes. We hand painted ours with two coats of semi-gloss black acrylic paint, allowing sufficient drying time in between each coat. Be sure to paint all surfaces of the pedestal including the top and bottom, as this will help seal the plaster from moisture and abrasion. Remember, plaster is not meant to take a lot of abuse and will chip or break if mistreated. You could also paint them to look like they were made of wood, marble, etc.

Cut Logs
Two thick logs cut to the same height and around the same diameter make
rustic looking stands for a coffin. These should be twelve inches in diameter or more and cut flat on each end for stability. You can sometimes find these at your nursery or you can also check with firewood providers in your area. You could also cut your own with a chainsaw if you leave in or near a wooded area.

Just be certain to check with the forestry department for any special instructions, regulations and permits that you might need before cutting down any trees! After you have your two cut logs, you will probably want to seal them to prevent deterioration and help prevent insects from eating at them.

Decorative Block
Failing anything else, you can always use decorative block to set your Halloween coffin on. These blocks can be found in the home and garden section at your local home improvement store. They can be painted to any color you want.
