At Imagine Play we often try to think of creative ways to add fun surprises to our special events and birthday parties. We love these Coco inspired party headband that we created for our Dia De Los Muertos party. This is a great party favor for your guests and it’s easier to make than you think.
Start by cutting out squares of tissues paper. They can be between 3×3 or 4×4 in length. They don’t need to be an extra square.
Cut the tissue paper into a round shape. Again, they don’t need to be a perfect circle.
Now fold each piece of tissue paper into fours so it looks like a butterfly.
Group each butterfly into groups of 4 or 5. You can do a larger group if you want fuller flowers.
Use some glue to glue the flower together or if you are low on time like us you can glue the tissue directly to the headband with hot glue, but be careful. Use three different colors for the most festival feel. You can do more colors too to make the headband feel more full.
We gave these headbands to girls, but also did the same technique to top hats for boys. With some facepainting, it was the perfect party favor!
