Rogers Park is Blooming is underway! You can read about the original proposal here. Clark Street will have a Day of the Dead theme with marigolds, skeletons, and filet crochet papel picado.
I was inspired by Gurman Fravor’s filet crochet papel picado to make my own design. If you’ve never done filet crochet before, it is pretty simple to learn. You should be able to find a few tutorials with a quick search. I like this one over at Hass Design.
