With more people choosing cremation services in Hallsville, TX, options for more unique urns seem to be on the rise. While traditional urns will always be available, more creative urns are starting to appear. If you would like a different way to keep your loved one’s ashes, check out some of these unusual urns.

1. Stuffed Animal Urn

If you want something soft and snuggly, then you may opt for a stuffed animal urn. These urns are essentially a stuffed animal with a space inside for some of your loved one’s ashes. You simply seal the ashes in a plastic bag which then goes inside a soft, cloth bag, and place them inside the stuffed animal through an opening in the back. This is a great option that allows you to cuddle with your loved one.

2. Cremation Jewelry

This concept isn’t really an urn, but a creative way to keep your loved one’s ashes close. Cremation jewelry is just like normal jewelry in that you can find rings, bracelets, necklaces, etc. The difference is that with cremation pieces, there is a pocket, or space for some of your loved one’s remains. This may be with a pendant that opens like a locket and allows for ashes to be added, or a charm on a bracelet, or a ring that opens. There are several options so you can find one that suits your style with no problem.

3. Wall Mounted Urn

You may normally think of urns and being a jar type container that sits on a shelf, but if you would like a different option, a wall mounted urn may be perfect. These urns are typically shaped like a square, rectangle, or other shape, and are flat on one side so they can be attached to a wall.

Some of these can be found with a place to have an engraving done so you could add a quote, song lyric, image, poem, scripture or simply your loved one’s name.

4. Hourglass Urn

If you want an urn the not only keeps your loved one close, but also reminds you how fragile life and time really is, you may love an hourglass urn. While these urns typically hold just about twelve ounces of remains, and they are not normally very accurate as far as time, they are a wonderful and unique way to keep your loved one close. They tend to come in a DIY kit and an be found in several places, mostly online.
