I'll join in again. I'll have to make a new craft in November... I'm working on a DOTD haunted honeymoon suite for our haunted hotel. That will be fun to see what everyone does.

This was not for the honeymoon suite, but here is the only other DOTD inspired decoration I have made.
I gave a lighthearted makeover to a used blowmold Mrs. Claus. LOL

I will add this one to the idea file. I made this wreath earlier in the season. The wreath base, felt flower clip, and paper mache skull face are from Michaels. It was really fun to paint a DOTD design on the skull face. I sent this one off to my daughter and she has it on her front door for Halloween.

I want to make jack skellington pumpkin using same method I did for my voodoo pumpkin but I'm prohibited from making new props until all my Hallloween decor is packed away :( ...my husband not into keeping decor around for extra month! I hope I'll have my pumpkin ready in November :). But if I'm late, here is the voodoo pumpkin: IMAG0321.jpg
Hand doesn't belong to it! Leftover from coffin that got packed away, but fits nicely.

Everyone's crafts look great!

I usually just lurk around here, but I made a lot of Day of the Dead dolls recently for our local DOD festival and thought I would share :) The busts are made out of paperclay and painted with acrylics. The wigs are made from tibetan lamb and are hand sewn. The cloth dolls are muslin and I hand painted the figures / backgrounds with acrylics.
