How to Make
- Using the template provided, cut out a large skull design from white foam. Mark out where the mouth, nose and eyes will be in pencil on one side. Cut a large blue heart from sticky foam and fix this to the other side of the skull so you can still see the features.
- Use a pair of sharp scissors to cut out the mouth, then the eyes and nose from both layers of foam. It is easiest to poke the scissors through the middle of the feature and then cut out towards the line.
- Cut out several small heart and star shapes from purple, black and red sticky foam. Lay them out in a symmetrical pattern on the front of the mask. Peel away the backing paper and stick them into position.
- Use PVA to glue lines of sparkling sequins around the outlines of the mask and leave to dry. Punch two holes on both edges of the mask and thread lengths of brightly coloured ribbon through them to tie around the back of your head.
The Day of the Dead celebrations usually take place over the two days after Halloween
