2  permanent decoration for my room-dia de los muertos ofrenda/memorial (pic heavy) in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by lullababy on: June 01, 2010 12:55:16 PM
When I moved back to my parents' house I was determined to redecorate my room to be less high school looking (I'm 25, haha). I'm obsessed with La Dia de los Muertos/Day of the Dead, and decided to put together a permanent altar/ofrenda memorial to loved ones in my family that have died. At first I was obsessed with working at it, but eventually that wore off and I just continued to add to it rather slowly for about a year. I'm finally content with how it looks and want to show it off! I had made sugar skulls, but they started to rot, so those are no longer there...

this is the complete view--sorry my humidifier got in it, haha!

another view without the candles lit

I bought the patch and the crocheted flowers on etsy...I wish I remembered the seller's names.

a better view of the patch

the tippity top with a frida kahlo portrait (my favorite mexican artist homage) and a calavera sculpture made by a mexican artisan that I purchased at a local imports store

a wooden skeleton and a picture of my late grandmother

"los esposos" cut-out designed by me, and a picture of my late uncle underwater

my uncle. Also a good picture of the candle holders I purchased from that same imports store. I believe they're from Peru.

a really great picture I found of my late grandfather

the other skull cut-out I made

Thanks for looking!

4  sugar skulls in Completed Projects by lullababy on: January 29, 2009 07:51:09 PM
These are inedible so they definitely don't belong in the food forum, they're sealed with sealant! These are for my year long dia de los muertos ofrenda Smiley

7  picture record bowl in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by lullababy on: December 30, 2006 07:03:40 PM

I decided I loathed gwen stefani post no doubt AFTER I bought this record. I hated it so much that I was determined to make a bowl out of it, but I just got around to it today.

It didn't come out as I'd like but I think it is still neat. My hands are a bit tingly from the heat or whatever.

9  vintage kimono ipod cozy in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by lullababy on: December 28, 2006 02:30:00 AM
So I was going to buy a nicer handmade one, but I figured why waste my money when I have some slightly above basic sewing skills and some nice vintage kimono scraps? I just had to buy some felt squares and snaps for this. I absolutely love the fabric, it's one of my treasures haha. I didn't think well enough to make it so that there aren't raw edges around some parts of the fabric, but it shouldn't fray too insanely because I used the zigzag stitch on the sewing machine. I might actually do an embroidery stitch by hand with red silk floss to further keep it from fraying, but I couldn't figure out how to thread a small headed needle with it. Here are some pictures:
