Made for my partner in the 13 Days of Halloween 2015 swap.
The box was once used to store library stamps back in the days before computers. The flowers, heart, and crown are sculpted of clay. The chair crafted from a champagne bottle top. Plastic skulls covered with glitter, skull and heart beads are also piled about. Papel picado was fashioned out of tissue paper.
I made some stenciled t shirts for my partner in the "Mini 13 Days of Halloween" swap:
I found a flowered t shirt in the local thrift store that I thought gave off a shabby chic Day of the Dead vibe and added a cool embracing skeleton couple stencil to it. The stencil was rather a @*#%* to cut out but I liked the result. Unfortunately I used a spray fabric paint and accidentally got some outside the stencil design itself. I added some hearts to the area in an attempt to pass it off as intentional. for the kids:
Her boys like zombies and vampires and the youngest loves pink!
