I was really excited to find these cute skull Papier-mâché at Michaels. To make these cute boxes you will need:
– Papier-mâché skull boxes
– White spray paint
– Black marker, I used a black oil paint Sharpie
– Markers or pait in fun colors
Start by painting the boxes white. Then make a design with the black marker.
My kids really had a blast making these little boxes and they look so cute.
They loved them so much that they painted both the front and the back on them.
You can make so many different designs and paint these in so many different ways.
These make a great craft idea for kids for a Día de los Muertos party and they will look beautiful decorating a Día de los Muertos altar.

This is an excellent idea for a kids craft.
i love this. the kids would have fun decorating them and they are so cute.
Really neat idea!:)
What an artsy craft, good job little guy.
Very cute! I have some of those boxes . I like how yours came out! I see your from Guatemala. Would you know how to make Guatemalan tamales by any chance? My God-sister is Guatemalan and her aunt the tamale lady passed away and I haven’t had a decent one since she died 4 yrs ago. All the ones I have tried since all have bones in them. 🙁 I’m in LA. Wish I could make them!
Ahh Tamales! Wish I knew how to make them. No one in my family has made them and I just fear giving the recipes I have a try, specially since the process is soooo long. But here is a recipe if you want to try it 🙂 http://www.thegringochapin.com/2011/01/mama-necas-tamales.html
