I am completely fascinated with Day of the Dead (Dia de los Muertos). The All Souls Procession, here in Tucson, Az , is one of the most amazing things about Tucson. It’s a really amazing event. I went last year, despite an aching back and was so glad I went!
I made these Day of the Dead Calavera (skull) planters. I thought the plants would make great hair or fancy hats. Sugar skulls, and other decorated skull like things, are given to the living and the dead. It is similar to giving valentine’s as a way to say, “I love you forever”. I thought these would make great decor for a DOTD party or given to friends/family as gifts to celebrate life.
