I’m so flattered that the one and only Aunt Peaches used my Crafty Chica appliqués to make this amazing necklace.! It’s gorgeous! I love that it has that boho-twang, but also has a tribal spirit. Like an artful warrior!!! Please check out her site, you will not be disappointed!

She created this tutorial when I had a product line at Michaels. These appliques were meant to be ironed on a jacket or other clothing, but Aunt Peaches went above and beyond in her creativity to make this boho sugar skull necklace.

By adding tassels and smaller elements, the whole design came together in a spectacular way!

Okay, here is her post about the boho sugar skull necklace

I don’t know about you, but my favorite part of Halloween is the day after — November 1. Not only do you have a bucket full of candy, it’s Dia de los Muertos. The day of the dead. A celebration of those who have past. It is equal parts colorful and creepy, and I for one can’t get enough of it! Thanks to I Love to Create’s new Crafty Chica line of Dia de los Muertos goodies, we can all join in the fun!
This necklace is easy to make, inexpensive, and can be worn all autumn long. It’s the festive touch your outfit needs!
 

 
Materials
Sugar Skull Iron-On Patches from Crafty Chica
Chain (I used an old necklace and removed the pendant)
O-Rings
Pliers
Optional: Tassels made from embroidery thread (instructions here if you need them)
 
Instructions
Use your pliers to open an O ring and push it through the top of the patch. You may find it easier to create a starter hole using a safety pin, but it’s not necessary. 
 
Attach each O ring to the chain, starting at the center and work your way outward, larger skulls going toward the center. If you want to include some fun tassel accents, be sure to budget enough space for them as well. Dia de los Muertos is an eclectic holiday that pulls inspiration from many elements, so feel free to add other things to the chain, not unlike a charm bracelet. What about beads? Or that single earring sitting in the bottom of your drawer? Build it up. It’s going to look awesome!
 
That’s it. Look at you! Time to party!
