Dia de los Muertos Hair Accessory
I whipped up this little Dia de los Muertos hair accessory this weekend to wear for Halloween. I know, I know, I was a couple days early. But I was dressed up as a "dead head" for Halloween so it fit. I used 4 colors of felt (black, white, pink, teal, and yellow), a couple different colors of embroidery thread, and some multi-colored sequins. I used a snap barrette I already had to attach it to my hair. Here are a few process photos.


I started getting the rough shapes laid out - the skull, the eyes, and various flower shapes. I started getting the embroidery laid out as well. I sewed the sequins to the felt flowers, but you could easily glue them on instead. 


After I had the flowers, leaves and skull arranged the way I wanted, I put everything on a big piece of black felt to use as a backer. I did a quick baste stitch to secure everything, then cut the black felt backer to size.


Here it is all finished. I embroidered the rest of the skull with linear and swirly stitches. I also added a few green leaves and some more sequins to the flowers. 


Here's an inspiration sugar skull! My sister made this one a few years ago and it's held up very well. Those are lots of fun to make, too. And here's a photo of me wearing my handiwork on Halloween. It was so much fun to make - I hope you like it! What did you wear for Halloween??
