Halloween craft: altered alebrijes

Here’s a fun craft idea from Blick Art Materials. Recycle your old stuffed animals to make alebrijes! Alebrijes are Mexican folk art sculptures of mystical animals. For reference, you can watch Pixar’s Coco or simply Google “alebrije” to get countless ideas on shapes, colors and patterns.

I love the festive colors of alebrijes. I also love that this craft begins by wrapping the stuffed animal like a mummy with plaster strips.


Wishing you all a fun and safe Halloween!
