Since I got my hands on the new Crafty Chica collection from Michael's, I've been whipping up lots of Dia De Los Muertos inspired projects, Last month, I had to get my tires rotated so I walked down the street from my tire shop, Cole's Bros, to the Goodwill in Victorville. Inside, I spotted a ukelele that was broken, on sale for $3.99. I probably paid too much for it but I knew it would be perfect to make this Dia De Los Muertos Skull Door Hanging!
To make this project, you'll need the following supplies. Some of these you can get on Amazon or other online places so I've linked them up for ya. I do get a small commission if you make a purchase and that helps us keep the crafts flowing.
- Cotton Cloth
- Dollar Store Mums or Marigolds
If you can't find a ukelele, you can use a toy guitar or broken guitar. It's important to paint the whole ukelele with chalk paint or gesso to prime the surface as the acrylci paint won't stick onto the varnished body of the ukelele.
And here's how to create this project, start to finish.
I am so excited at how this project turned out! It's so unique and totally NOT a wreath (are we tied of wreaths yet?) and I hope this inspires you to get outside the wreath and upcycle something trashy into something cool!
