day of the dead bed

My October bed was/is a tribute to Dia de los Muertos. The papel picado was made from painted newspaper and the comedy/tragedy masks were painted up by me. I picked up the blank masks from our local craft store. After a coat of white paint, I added black painted details. Once that dried I used paint pens and sharpies for the rest. A hot glue gun was used to affix the flowers and a bit of thread stitched through the two helped keep them together.  Here's a little collage to show ya how I did them.


  1. Beautiful! Maybe one of my favorite ones yet.

  2. Love it! You're so creative
