The Day of the Dead or Dia de los Muertos is a beautiful Mexican holiday that comes just days after Halloween. The holiday is full of rich traditions and symbolism and is about remembering loved ones that have passed.
Place the stencil on the foam skulls. Using craft paint (a dry brush technique is always better when stenciling) apply the design to the skills. Allow the stencils to dry completely.
Place the foam wreath on the serape and roughly measure and cut the serape to fit around the wreath.
Cut the serape into triangles so that it will easily wrap around the inside of the wreath. Don't worry if this step looks messy because it will not be visible when the wreath is hung.
Using a hot-glue gun add flowers, skulls and small bunches of tulle to the wreath.
Use hot glue to add ribbon, trim and twine in various colors and lengths to the bottom of the wreath.
