De los Muertos Colorful Wreath $28 + Shipping
This Day of the dead wreath is a celebration of the beautiful color and meaning of this famous festival. I found this fun fabric and wanted to highlight certain images. I started by painting the wooden octagon base (that my husband made) a bright magenta pink. I used four coordinating fabrics to create the round fabric front. I added buttons in orange, pink and green. The very top holds two blue flowers with tiny skulls in the center.
The center is a wooden slat painted in magenta with a strip of bright green trim. The fun loving couple in the middle is my favorite part of the fabric. I cut them out in the shape of a heart and sewed it to a felt background and added a thin piece of cardboard inside to give it shape. The finished piece measures approx 13" in diameter. I think this would be a great gift for any one who loves "Day of the Dead", skulls or a truly unique gift to brighten up any room!
