Ever since I first started learning about, and seeing
pictures of, Día de los Muertos celebrations I have been
fascinated with the holiday. The festive scenes, the colors,
the skeletons and skulls - and the fact that it is actually
a celebration. Remembering the dead in México
is certainly nothing like the sombre Swedish equivalent.
This last year I have also rediscovered the art of dioramas
and for Magaly's annual bash I wanted to create something new.
Fittingly, our hostess recently shared that one of her favorite
songs is (the Spanish) The Skeleton Dance and that whenever
she thinks of bones, she imagines them dancing :)
Most of the diorama details are paper and fabric crafts
but the cactus was made from beads and metal wire.
The table and chairs were made from buttons,
wooden beads and cardboard (and a sequin trim).
And this is the post where I made the skeletons.
Thank you to witchy Magaly for hosting this event!
