Last year for Christmas, I made my son-in-law a zombie tin and magnet set (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=366989.0).  I had an opportunity to see his work space a few months ago and it was the only personal thing he had by his computer.   Smiley    Obviously, I need to up my game this year.  I came up with a miniature vampire hunter's kit.

It's got a cross, bible, wooden stakes, mirror, bat illustration, a vampire skull sitting on top of a spool of silver chain, a revolver with wooden bullets, vials of holy water and blood sealed with red wax and a garlic braid (which cackle helped me with). 



Here are some of the items separate from the case, so you can see them better.


I covered the outside of the case in brown alligator, it's an altoid tin.  Very unassuming, eh? 


Before I finish glueing everything in, any suggestions for something I may have missed?

Haha!  This is awesome - love the garlic and the tiny wooden stakes.  I think he might need some sort of mallet to pound those stakes  through - mightn't he?  Wink
  And wooden bullets!  Who knew??  Hilarious!!

Thanks Aislynn!  The vampire skull is one of those carved skull beads that I molded tiny poly clay fangs for and baked very carefully.  When they came out of the oven after about 5 minutes, I just glued them on.

Thanks everyone!  I was having the toughest time figuring out how to display the silver chain when I remembered purchasing some large chain at Home Depot.  Real chain comes on spools so I unraveled a tiny spool of thread.
