 I really liked the Day of the Dead bracelets posted  here on craftster at  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=404439.0  and decided I wanted to make something similar, so I went shopping online.

Well, I seem to have ordered LOTS and LOTS of skulls, roses, and Mexican-inspired charms, way more than I need for personal jewelry and gifts.  So, while this isn't exactly recycling, I do need to find interesting ways to use up these treasures. 

Anybody got ideas?  Personal adornment, decorating the house, gifts, whatever!

Home decor might be a good way to go.  I made a version of this to use up some ribbon and felt I've been hoarding.  Maybe sew the beads, etc to make a Day of the Dead version.  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=408933.0

those are pretty!  Home decor is a good idea--I was thinking of using skulls as bead fringe on a lampshade.

I also like unique home decors, actually I start making some DIY decorations that I put on my bedroom and I get good ideas from your given example. And those skull and rose beads can also use to make a home made wind chime.
