Coffin Decoration: Ideas For A Personalized Funeral
Placing Items Of Love On Coffins
Funerals are intimate affairs shared by people who love and admire the deceased. Most people go in with the assumption that funerals are meant to be somber. That doesn’t have to be the case if your loved one wants a more upbeat or cheerful goodbye. If you’re organizing the funeral for the deceased, you should know that honoring the wishes of your loved one is of utmost importance. Giving a reflection of their individuality in the funeral service would be a respectful and thoughtful gift to the deceased. There are so many options to explore with decorations. Here are some ideas:
What Will Make For A Beautiful Coffin Decoration Piece?
Coffins in themselves are quite plain. You could choose any material, be it cardboard, bamboo, wood, wicker or seagrass, and amp the look with a piece of decoration. Different materials can also allow you to explore the various ways you can decorate the coffin.
An easy and approachable decoration idea would be creating a collage and pinning it on the coffin. You could also have coffins customized and have these pictures printed on the exterior. You can attach personal memories that you’ve shared with your loved one, pictures from a memorable trip, photos of friends and family members, and pictures that remind you of joyous and celebratory occasions in general.
If you’re looking to do something simpler, you can attach your favorite pictures to a string and have it hang on the front of the coffin. You can always accompany the decorations with casket sprays too.
2. All that glitters
If you’re not looking to cover the entire coffin in rhinestones and glitter, you can always pick a shape or pattern, like a heart or flower, and have it made in rhinestones on the coffin.
3. Flags and banners
Draping a flag on a coffin represents the love the deceased had for their nation. There are rules on how you can use a flag on a coffin. You can also choose to lay a banner across the coffin that could read a meaningful quote or could hold a picturesque view of a place that your loved one cherished. If the deceased was attached to an organization or a movement, you can also have a flag or make a banner that represents their ideologies.
4. Paintings memories
You can also have the deceased’s paintings placed on the coffin or have it customized as the exterior of the coffin itself.
