Halloween decor

Good day everyone,

I have a Halloween decor to share with you,
 my new venture in Mixed Media and I'm loving it.

Lots and lots of different elements on this project
Paper flowers, charms, beads, filigree hardware, chain etc...

I found this cute coffin box at the dollar store 
It was available in 3 sizes, this is the largest 9 inches long
of course I purchased all 3 lol

I started with tissue paper and several branches die cuts to add texture
as well as swirls die cuts, and covered it all with black gesso

A plastic mini spoon from the dollar store, I added a cross charm
on the bottom, plastic skull in center of spoon added red rhinestones
Around the skull I added some decorative sand 
and micro beads to some 3D matte gel.  
I added some crackle paste to the wings

I used emerald green, blue and brown tones metallic paints 
and finish with several different colors of waxes
(I really need to start marking colors down)

Now I still have 2 more sizes to play with 
I have a plastic bin full of different items for Halloween
that I have picked up recently and from previous years
This is what I love so much about these projects, you get to
use it all up and color does not matter as everything gets a new finish
