DIY Dia de los Muertos Halloween Costume


Okay, I know that Dia de los Meurtos and Halloween are totally different holidays, but I wanted a quick and easy way to change up my skeleton costume from last year. 

Last year's costume.  Aren't I spooky? ;)
The solution?  Add a flowered headband!  It's actually really cute by itself, too :)

To make your own, you will need:
  • Headband (preferably something without the shiny plastic)
  • Fabric flowers (I chose hydrangea)
  • Hot glue gun
  • Skeleton t-shirt
  • Skeleton mask or face paint
Snip off a bunch of your flower blooms.

Then, starting in the middle, add a dot of hot glue and press a bloom onto it.

Work your way out on both sides of the headband until the top is filled.

Then, add a few extra blooms to fill in.

Add some braids and skeleton extras, and you're set!
