Here's a project I was working on. A Vampire Hunting Kit. I'm really happy with how it turned out, so I thought I would share it.
I followed Stiltbeast Studios how-to video pretty closely. (Love his videos. So funny.)

I bought the little faux 'suitcase' at Michaels on a good sale. I gave it a little makeover to look more Vampire Hunter-ish. haha

I am thrilled that I was able to either salvage from around the house or find the other items at Dollar Tree. I then embellished them per the video.
One lesson learned is to wear gloves while using leather stain. LOL

Here is a link to the how-to. Allen Hopps is a genius and his youtube channel, Stiltbeast Studios, is a treasure trove of fantastic how-to videos for haunters.

Very nicely done! It's all aged beautifully and has the perfect "feel"!
I can sympathize with the stain issue. I hate wearing gloves when I work, and a large percentage of the time, my hands show it. :rolleyes:
I just made a bunch of stakes last week, myself. Fortunately wood stain comes off a little more quickly than leather stain does.

Thank you all so much! This creepy prop building is so much fun.

A silverware chest is an awesome idea! That would make a great vampire hunting kit. I also think that would be great for some kind of instrument kit for my laboratory. Now I must find one.

The to-do list never does end... does it?! :D
