Haven't you ever wanted an angel to celebrate Samhain and El Dia de los Muertos with? Of course you have. And the brilliant Carin over at The Anticraft found a way to let you do just that...and a year ago, to boot! Bet you didn't know that, huh?
I actually bought a gawdy little angel last year in preparation to make it into a little Death for my Samhain altar. It would have been fantastic, it had a mandolin it was playing and everything. I say would have, because it got lost in our move. That or ran away...perhaps it didn't want to let go of its rosy cheeks just yet.
The free instructions to make your own little Dollar Store Death can be found at http://www.theanticraft.com/archive/samhain08/dollarstoredeath.htm . Go ahead, poke around the rest of the site, see what wondrous macabre creations you find...you may even discover a thing or two from me on there. Careful though, several things on the site are NSFW. Perhaps you should wait until after work?
