Description:

We will be making a Dotee of the Dead in honor of the Day of the Dead Festival.

I looked up the meaning of the Day of the Dead :

d Day of the Dead:

The Day of the Dead (Dia de los Muertos), celebrated between October 31st and November 2nd, is a celebration in which Mexicans remember and honor their deceased loved ones. Though it may sound gloomy or morbid, it's not. It's a festive and colorful holiday. Mexicans visit cemeteries, decorate the graves and spend time there - in the presence of their deceased friends and family members.

In this swap you will be making a Dotee of the Dead, in remembrance of a deceased loved one. Tell your partner a little bit about this person. Remember it can be either a man or woman, to get ideas of how to make this Dotee look at images of the day of the dead. You can make a matchbox shrine or add a coffin if you would like. You do not have to add this to your dotee but I thought it would be a fun addition.

Standards:

Between 4-6 inches

With a hanger and tail

I am including patterns of coffins I found on line:

I am not promoting that you buy anything from this site it but it does show how to make different matchbox ideas.
