Spoon fed?

I love to use "found" stuff in my pieces.....why?? 
Well, a couple of reasons.....first, found stuff is often cheaper than named craft stuff and second and most important for me, it makes my stuff look more individual.
 I think....and this is only my opinion.....there is too much stuff out there that all looks the same, I try hard to be me:)

 Today I made this Hallowe'en skull spoon thingy!




 Now, although I like found stuff I'm not completely immmune to the lure of more commonly available stuff! 
The skull face is from this Stampendous stamp

and the light bulb is one of these.......I removed the word from it.........
 
 ......here are the other "ingredients".............an old spoon, a brass curtain ring, rusty wire, cheap owl earring, plastic spiders and crowns.....and some paint!

Great piece of recycling Sue, you would never think that spider was plastic, looks too life like for me. Love how,you have used the lightbulb, the skull looks great behind and I love the rusty wire and curtain ring. Very creative. Tracy x

where to begin? I love the use of the lightbulb- and the way you used the ball chain around it. Everything is so perfectly integrated.
