Dia de los Muertos Necklaces

I adore Dia de los Muertos. It happens to be one of my most favorite holidays. Every year I try to come up with a new hand crafted project. This year I found these amazing resin skulls at Mexican Sugar Skull. They are really affordable at only $8 a set.

white resin skull blanks for you to paint with brightly colored acryllics

I sent them to my father who drilled holes in them for me. Power tools and I do not get along well.


I hit them with a coat of white paint.





Then each piece was painted to match the personality of the person who was to receive it. I added a few beads and a chain and voila , the Dia de los Muertos necklace was born.
