Latin-Inspired Crafts

Episode DCLB-149

Guest Kathy Cano Murillo turns a plain old TV tray and silverware drawer into a colorful table collage featuring a splash of Latin art and culture. Next, Kathy takes an unadorned lamp and camps it up rumba-girl style using fruit and lots of glitz. Then, Kathy takes brightly colored crepe paper and fashions it into a lush topiary guaranteed to brighten up any fiesta.

FIELD PIECE: Papel Picado challenge (Mexican art of cut paper). Roving reporter Cat Greenleaf gives passers-by a stack of multi-colored tissue paper squares, scissors and a hole punch and challenges them to cut out a design, face, animal or anything else that they are inspired to make. Cat strings the finished cut squares together to create a festive banner!
