Shrine MDF Kit From Creative Expressions

A Monstrous MDF Mod

Boo! Haha, gotcha. Well, for those that recognise this festival of spirits I’d like to wish you a happy Halloween and to share an MDF modification that I recently completed.

The main kit was the “Shrine” MDF kit from Creative Expressions.

Shrine MDF Kit From Creative Expressions

A lovely simple project with just six pieces that fit together logically.

To start I covered with Graphic 45 papers, assembled the shrine and added some distressing with black acrylic paint.


I then rifled through my die collection and found a few swirly dies from Spellbinders.

These were cut from Cardstock four times each and then glued together.


I knew that I wanted a shelf and a cover for the aperture so I created two versions.

One was a simple rectangle and the other I cut notches in so that it would slot into the aperture in the shrine.


All of these elements where them given a coat of black acrylic, allowed to dry, and the  dry brushed with some iridescent white paint to give them a metallic finish.

The ‘wrought iron’ was then glued in place on the shrine using PVA glue.

To fining I filled some Tim Holtz Corked Vials with glitter glue and arranged these on the shelf.

I think I’m ready to open my love potion shop now … fancy a closer look?

So, what do you think?

Have you modified an MDF kit in the past? It’s really good fun and makes a shop bought kit truly unique and original.

Thanks for reading and don’t forget to pop back again tomorrow for November’s colour challenge.

Bye for now.
