When I bought my studio (an old house that belonged to my friend & neighbor before she went into the nursing home), there were lots of old spice tins & bottles in the cabinet. I hung on to them waiting to use them. Several years later, I figured it out!
This was a tin of cloves--I left them in there because they smell so good! I added some bones from some pages from an old book and added some color and added some black decorations with paint. then topped it with a paperclay skull with bright colors! For the finishing touch, I added a hat made from an old metal cake decorating tip and some coloful yarn. Measures about 9" tall.
