I always loved Day of the Dead, and last year for Halloween I created a sugar skull printable. Rather than reinvent the wheel, I decided to turn it into a fun banner to decorate with this year.

Hot glue the skulls to the twine. I used a post it note to keep mine spaced evenly. Then glue the flowers in between the skulls. Tip: place the glue a little above the stem and your flowers will lay flatter.
