Thank you to Pottery Barn Kids for sponsoring this post and
for inspiring some fun Halloween crafting with my kids!
Welcome to the first day of Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) Week! Stop by each day for a new and exciting project to celebrate one of my favorite holidays. First up, how to make a super easy and kid-friendly Dia de los Muertos Calavera Mask to accompany a Pottery Barn Kids’ Skeleton Costume!
Dia de los Muertos Calavera Mask
- Paper Mache Skull Mask
- White Paint
- Foam Shapes Variety Pack
- Black Paint Pen
3. Keep adding foam stickers until you’re happy with the design or until your kid has covered every single bare space of the mask! Outline the teeth, eyes, and nose with a black paint pen to accentuate the holes.
To keep in place, you can either glue a popsicle stick to the back and have the child hold it or punch two holes into the side and add some elastic to go around their head. All you need now is a super cute and comfy skeleton costume…
BAM! Pottery Barn Kids to the rescue! Just add your handmade calavera mask and you’re good to go, instant Dia de los Muertos costume. And check out that treat bag? Glue on a few felt hearts and flowers and it’ll match perfectly.
Don’t forget that Pottery Barn Kids is offering free shipping and 20% off all treat bags…total win, right? While you’re there, check out all their other super cute costumes (that adorable scarecrow one almost makes me wish I had girls!) and let me know which one is your favorite!
Stop by tomorrow for another quick and easy way to celebrate Dia de los Muertos! I’ll give you a hint…it’ll make you shriek with joy. Or should I say “shrink?” 😀
