I’m a tiny bit obsessed with Day of the Dead themed crafts at the moment.
I recently made these Day of the Dead Hama Bead Designs over on my craft blog and today I have another Day of the Dead craft for you.
This month’s craft pack from Bostik and Craft Merrily contained lots of lovely Autumn things as well as some sticky glue dots so Cherry made this little leaf man picture.
The sticky glue dots are great and Cherry stuck all of this onto a sheet of foam with them.
The box also contained a glue pen which I’ve never used before. You can draw with it so I decided we should make some Day of the Dead glitter art.
I started by drawing the rough design with a pencil. Then I went over each part with the glue pen and let Cherry shake glitter all over it before tapping the excess off. Half way though I sealed it with a layer of Mod Podge (you can also use watered down PVA glue), this just stopped the glitter from mixing up. At the end I covered it all with a layer of Mod Podge / watered down PVA to stop the glitter falling off everywhere.
They are really easy to make and you could change the design for different occasions too. In fact Cherry is making pictures using the glue pen and glitter right now!
