Dia de los Muertos/ Day of the Dead decorations
This last week I have been getting together my Dia de los Muertos decorations. Making crepe paper marigolds for a little Dia de Los Muertos shrine. These are particularly small, flowers for a crown…fit for Prince…
The process of making the mini paper marigolds are the same as making the larger ones, except for the stapling. Instead I sewed the paper circles together, a few stitches apiece.
I have also been making dozens of these paper marigolds for the shrine in a larger version. Papel picado, lamps, colouring in skulls, flower crowns are also in the pipeline.
I like to observe Dia de los Muertos. It’s nice when your friends and relatives come over. The crafts projects are varied, cheap to make and fantastically coloured. I miss my departed, as we all do, and taking time in remembrance is connecting and healing. I haven’t heard any annoying jingles on the radio in the months leading up.
Dia de los Muertos is the best holiday.
Because of course Prince is invited to the party!
