I'm in a Dia de Los Muertos crafty blog hop with some super amazeballs crafters like my personal crafty hero, The Crafty Chica!
What you need
- paper plates (paper ones. Being the Failed Housewife I am, I used plastic and nothing stuck to them :/ )
- markers, crayons, paint
This is so easy and yet I messed it up. But don't fret even I could not screw this one up too badly.
Get your paper plate and cut out a rectangle shape on the bottom. Depending on your plate, you can leave it as is or cut a smaller circle for the skull.
Now very carefully cut two holes out for eyes. See how well I did? Your goal is to do a little bit better than that.
This is the fun part. Basically you are doodling all over this thing. Flowers, swirls, hearts, dots, whatever your fancy. Obviously I don't know what the hell I'm doing but it's better than a plate of turds!
Oh look at these adorable guys that I made with my kids! No, that's a lie. I begged my kids to craft with me but they ran and played with some rocks or something. I did what I thought my kids would do and I believe mine are way better than theirs.
I plan to wear my mask in shame for the next few days.
