I picked up a battered black metal lunch box at a garage sale this summer, I thought it would make a great "scene" piece. After some inspiration from designers Monika Brint and Kim Christmas, I came up with this spooky scene!
I first primed the lunchbox with metal primer. Next came a coat of black chalk paint. Then I just used regular acrylic paints. A good coat of polyacrylic varnish after it was complete.
The box was missing it's handle so I used wire to create a new one. I finished the handle off with some black raffia and a ribbon.
I'll be taking this lunchbox (and lots more) to The Vintage Market in southern Michigan.
See me outside in Booth #230!
