I found the set of teeth I wanted to originally use in my HDH project and decided I couldn't let them go sitting unused. Here is my second entry to Macabre Monday HDH134 "Long in the Tooth":
I like this version much better.

I started with my sister's mold of her gnarly teeth before having braces. I colored the teeth and gums with copic markers to make the teeth look a little more gross and menacing. I painted the rest of the mold black.
I found an old paper mache coffin and decided it would be the perfect home for the teeth. I used awesome papers from Creative Imaginations and Modpodge to decorate the coffin. The inside of the coffin and the bottom is painted with black acrylic paint. The paper had this cool and toothy skull on it that I fussy cut and added to the coffin.
Above is a pic with the coffin lid off, showing the teeth.

Now that I'm looking at this, I should have saved this project for the Skull Appreciation Day blog hop, but I couldn't wait that long. I had to share it!
