Halloween Scene Lunchbox

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!
