Creative Ways To Memorialize A Loved One's Ashes

Are you looking for a creative way to memorialize the ashes of a loved one? If so, it will help to know these creative ideas to do it.

Sky Scattering

One of the most unique ways to scatter ashes is by sending them up into the sky. There are companies that specialize in this technique by inserting the ashes into a helium-filled balloon. This balloon is capable of reaching several miles into the sky, which is where the balloon reaches temperatures below freezing and then pops. The ashes then get scattered so high up in the air that the wind takes them for many miles around you.

Art Work

It is possible to have those ashes transformed into colorful artwork that can be displayed. The ashes can be colored and inserted into a glass figurine as a beautiful way to display the ashes. You can also make multiple figurines and give them to surviving members of the family, with each person's figuring being completely unique.

Vinyl Record

Did your loved one love music? It is actually possible to have ashes made into a vinyl record. You can then press their favorite song into the record so that you remember them every time you listen to it. 


Ashes are also possible to insert into fireworks. This can create a memorable way to scatter the ashes as you light off the fireworks and watch them explode. You can use this as a way to end a memorial ceremony for your loved one as a way to celebrate their life.


You can also mix those ashes in with paint, and then use that paint to commission a painting to remember your loved one. It's possible to use this to create a portrait of them that you hang in your house, which will give you a nice piece of artwork that can be passed down.

Teddy Bear

If you have a small child that lost a loved one at a young age, know that it is possible to insert the ashes into a teddy bear. This is a much more kid-friendly way to hold onto the ashes since the teddy bear is something that they will love and cherish at their young age.
