Nailed It

Welcome to the new Macabre Monday two week challenge at Haunted Design House.

Nailed It!

You are to create a dark, Gothic, or Hallowe'en based art piece, that contains pins or nails of one sort of another.  You can use straight pins, safety pins, carpentry nails, nail heads or fingernails, whatever, as long as it's nail related in some way.

This is what I came up with


Not quite sure what you would call it...... wall hanging?...... door plaque?........ anyway,  it started off life as a piece of 5" x 7" wood. Which I painted black. The image I borrowed from the net and glued to the wood and hammered the nails to each corner.  The tassel was a curtain tie-back, which I unravelled, stitched into shape and attached to the outside with a staple gun,  and there you have it!

and I did it all without damaging my own nails LOL

I would like to enter the following challenge(s)
