Step-by-step instructions: El Dia de los Muertos headpiece or crown
All you need is Happythought flower and skeleton hand templates, paints, scissors, a glue stick and tape. Get creative and don’t be scared to use all your favorite colors and textures.
First, paint, cut out and arrange your flowers
The craft pack includes templates and tutorials for flowers, skeleton hands, spiders, moths and butterflies!
We chose pinks , purples, blues and blacks to make a crown in perfect hues for the Day of the Dead. Add stripes and dots of color and stack up different shaped petals to make beautiful blooms for your crown.
Next, paint the headband and add flowers and skeleton hands, with the largest flower in the middle. Add a bejewelled spider and a beautiful butterfly to the crown. To attach the flowers to the base, we used a roll of masking tape on the back of each flower. That way it is easy to reposition your flowers if you need to! Once you are happy you can add some glue to make them more secure.
We also stuck on some gems and dusted the flowers with glitter. To wear your crown, wrap the crown around your head and secure at the back of the head with a little tape.
