These are a really pretty slightly creepy decoration for a room. Any questions, ask.
Sorry the pictures are the wrong way round! :(
First google 'Sugar Skulls' Or 'Day of the dead' This can give you inspiration and give you a good colour scheme. Or just make it up as you go along like i did :)
Now draw a template of a skull on paper. Lay it on the felt and cut out. Make two.
Draw a rectangle with two triangles on the end in pencil. Backstitch in embroidery thread around the outline. Add teeth and fill them in with white paint.
Paint a triangle for the nose and add two white dots for the nostrils.
Optional: Mix a little bit of glue with the paint and add glitter.
Paint the eyes a plain colour in a circle. Add sequins in the middle. (I used googly eyes :D )
Optional: Add a wavy outline to make the eyes look like flowers.
Most sugar skulls have decoration on the cheeks and forehead. The most common decorations include flowers. Just make it bright and colourful :D
Optional: Beads and glitter will make it stand out more.
So far... <--
Use blanket stitch to sew the two pieces together. This is a good stitch to use because it is strong and adds detail.
Leave a gap so you can add a little bit of stuffing to give it more of a 3D effect.
If you want to hang it up add up little loop of embroidery thread at the top.
