Monster Art: Zombies & Trinkets


Last weekend was a blast; creating three monster art items from inexpensive finds at a flea market!

Everything you see here cost me less than $10 to make.IMG_4671

The round metal box, embellished with glittery beads, had a lid that was difficult to remove.

IMG_4661I had these vintage 1950’s sour cream carton lids in my art studio, which I dressed up with glitter and a zombie (thanks for the zombies, Matt)!



The trinket book box has a nifty magnetic closure that keeps it tightly closed, so you can actually display it like a book! There was one last sour cream lid left, so I glued on a plastic skull and glass beads to make it shimmer.IMG_4643


The last find was a journal that I collaged and painted. A female zombie figure was glued on the top of a broken flower brooch which I fastened onto a metal lid.

I also glued a pocket to the interior and  to the back of the journal to hold spells and ephemera. These journals are terrific for doodling and writing down favorite quotes.IMG_4652









*Mod Podge Gloss Lustre was used for glue and varnish. It’s inexpensive and can be purchased at any art supply store!
