    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.

    Decoration:
    Most sugar skulls have decoration on the cheeks and forehead. The most common decorations include flowers. Just make it bright and colourful :D

    Use blanket stitch to sew the two pieces together. This is a good stitch to use because it is strong and adds detail.
