Day of the Dead Hoop Wall Hanging

Good morning! It’s October! Fall is coming quickly! I hope you have been safe and are enjoying some fall weather where you are. I think of all of you every day and pray for you and your families. I love having you come by and visit! Thank you!

I have another Day of the Dead, or Dio de la Muertos craft idea today, but this could be easily adopted to other holidays or colors. Think fall colors with pumpkins or even Christmas with ornaments. So many ideas!

I started with an embroidery hoop, chunky yarn, silk flowers and Day of the Dead sugar skulls.

I cut several pieces of each color of yarn and then started tying them on the bottom of the hoop. I folded the yarn in half and laid it over the hoop.

I took the two loose ends of the yarn, wrapped them around the back of the hoop and then thread it through the loop.

Pull the yarn tight to form the knot. Keep adding yarn for as far as you want it to go.

I added four strings of each color that I was using.

I trimmed the bottom of the yarn to make it a bit more even.

I hot glued three flowers on the hoop over the knots of yarn.

Then I took three skulls and glued them to the top of the hoop. I chose two white ones and one with color.

This is such a simple little craft! It’s perfect to add to my other Day of the Dead items- shadowbox, Ofrenda.

I have this in my entryway right now, but I will move most of it outside to my Ofrenda just before Halloween. Have you ever decorated with Day of the Dead items or put together an Ofrenda? I would love to hear about it!
