Welcome to my first Monday Musings post. Today I'd like to share with you an altered pail that I made for a swap. I thought it was perfect for today's post. It started out a plain $1 metal pail from Target. I used black, orange, and yellow alcohol inks to paint the exposed metal portions. I adhered vintage halloween cut-outs that I purchased from The Vintage Workshop. Some of the embellishments I picked up at tag sales or antique stores, and others from my local party supply store. I tied a lot of ribbons and fibers to the handle, along with an altered shipping tag.

bottle cap with a sticker and UTEE - notice the number on the vintage bingo chip

old wood game pieces with stickers

ping pong eyeball cut in half

charms, beaded fibers
