I used:
chenille stems
dried pasta
popsicle sticks

an old picture frame
a scrap of black fabric
a piece of cardboard
white paint
a black Sharpie
pink fabric
pink ribbon
strand "pearls"
needle and thread
an x-acto knife
glue

First I sketched a pattern for the bones and whittled popsicle sticks into the right sizes and shapes, gluing two of the large posicle sticks together to make her skull.


I painted the bones white and added details with the black Sharpie then mounted them with glue onto the fabric covered cardboard in the picture frame.


I made her a little apron with some fabric and ribbon, gave her some orange rotini (spiral pasta) hair, added a hair bow and a pearl necklace (a must for a Suzy Homemaker) and put a little whittled popsicle stick rolling pin in her hand. Then I decorated her shrine with pipe cleaner flowers.

She fits in perfectly in my "fiesta" kitchen.  Cheesy

I loooove what you did with the popsicle sticks! SO creative and crafty. I also just dig the idea, day of the dead is neat, I'm excited, I'm going to be in Mexico for it this year! Hopefully we'll get to see some local celebrations and such, thanks for getting me in the mood!

This got my vote. It's just so cute! I think I'm going to try and convince my mother to let me make one for our kitchen.

LOOKING FOR A PERSONAL SWAP: I'm hoping for dinosaur-themed Xmas crackers, or other dinosaur Xmas items. I can make a Jayne Cobb hat, or many other things!
