This is the AWARD WINNING felted piece based on traditional Mexican Sugar Skulls. She won First Place in the Tapestry Competition at the L.A. County Fair! She’s now available in my Etsy Shop!
I like this little lady cause she is so feminine. I usually think of my pieces as masculine, but loved making her sweet roses & red lips!
This Skull Wall Hanging was inspired by traditional Mexican Sugar Skulls that are often made for the “Day of The Dead” or “Día de los Muertos”. I love their graphic nature, and think that translates well into felted pieces. This Skull has a was inspired by a Rose theme with 2 giant dimensional roses and a sweet feminine style.
I made this Sugar Skull by first cutting out all the colored shapes of felt on my Silhouette Cameo Die Cutting Machine. Then they were attached to the white wool skull shape using an adhesive interfacing, and needle felting. The black felt background was stiffened with glue & then everything was assembled together.
The piece measures 20″ Wide x 11″ Tall x 1″ Deep
