Día de los Muertos
Updated: Apr 11, 2019
My Glam take on a Holiday that is filled with so much meaning.
Not only is this a nontraditional take on Día de los Muertos , it was also done on a tight budget. 90% of the items used for this project are DIY projects from Dollar Tree!
“We all love to live a Glam life but our budget doesn't always agree”
Every Día de los Muertos celebration has an altar. The purpose of an altar is to place pictures of your loved ones who have moved on. It honors them and keeps them from fading away. Let's them know they are still important and thought of.
The rhinestone ribbon I used all thru this project can be purchased by the case from Dollar Tree.
Although not traditional I wanted to have a tree. The tree is decorated with ceramic skulls that were adorned with flowers and turned in to ornaments. The spiders were all hand stoned. The ball ornaments are a DIY trick I learned from The Slumbering Alligator. A few small floral clusters and mirrors would help finish off this tree.
Lets top it off!
For a topper I used the following; 1 large skull, 2 small skulls, flowers, and a cheap costume necklace I turned in to a tiara. Lastly I added a spiderweb door decoration from Dollar Tree.
I hope this helps to inspire you Flockers to go out and do a glam DIY take on something for yourself. If you do please share it with me, I love to see what y'all are up to!
