Vintage Style Halloween Trinket Boxes

Here are some Halloween trinket boxes that I just listed on eBay. They are hand painted in a vintage Halloween style using orange, black and gold. I really love these boxes because not only do they open at the top, but they also have a secret opening in the middle.

I hand made the cat and the Jack O Lantern knobs out of paper clay. Then I painted them to match. The spider and the leaves are made out of polymer clay.

I relined the inside of the compartments with a black corduroy material.

The cat box measures 5 inches wide and 7 1/2 inches tall including the cat knob.

The JOL box measures 6 1/2 inches wide and 7 inches tall including the jol knob.

Thank you for all the wonderful comments!!

I made them using the old knobs that the boxes came with. I covered over them with paper clay that way the cat and jol screws onto the lid without falling off.

Wow, these are amazing, as are all of your creations. I especially love the black cat box! The colors alone are so evocative of that special time of year (why, Halloween, of course!), it gives me the chills. Keep up the great work!
