Who doesn’t love a little Jack Skellington and everyone else from Halloween Town?
Everyone who knows me, knows I love Dia De Los Muertos (Day of the Dead) which is traditionally celebrated (on November 1st and 2nd) in many Latin Countries to honor and celebrate the lives of relatives and ancestors who have passed on from this earth.
This Clay Pendant is something new that I have been working on. I’m not entirely sure I am pleased with the outcome (which naturally means I will end up making many more of these until I am satisfied).
Its made of Natural Terra Cotta Colored Clay (not Polymer Clay), hand stamped and detailed using powdered Pigments and sealed.
Id love to hear any feedback you may have. 🙂
Dia De Los Muertos or Day of the Dead is a celebration and rememberance of the lives of those who have passed on. It is celebrated November 1st and 2nd.
Day of the Dead Calavera Mask -Really cute and colorful
Printable Jar and Candle Wraps – I have loads of Mason Jars and that I am definitely planning to do this with.
Day of the Dead Sun Catchers – Another cute idea. I haven’t done this one yet, but there are a bunch of variations you could do with this. You can cut the skull out of Cardboard/Cardstock and use tissue paper
on the backside if you have smaller kids working on this project.
Dia De Los Muertos Paper Box – This one is a really cute craft project. My daughter (12 yrs old) made a hand full of these for Halloween last year and gave them out to her friends with candy inside of them. We printed them on Cardstock Paper.
A little background on Owls and Why I included an Owl Set of Coloring Sheets – Not that owls necessarily apply to Dia De Los Muertos but often have tributing factors in many cultures…and I really like owls too.
