I made this for cadet120433 in the Vintage Halloween 2019 swap. It was the first time I made a contained miniature like this and it was a lot of fun!

I created the spooky tree with wire, and put in the moss, gravestones, rocks, and skull and bones. I also added a battery-operated string of "fairy lights" to illuminate the whole piece.



With the lights on so you can see the whole piece:


And a close-up:


I definitely learned some things in the process and it's a lot more challenging to do this kind of piece when you only have a small access from one side, but it was a lot of fun and I was really happy with how it came out.

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.
