‘Rose’ Headpiece Tutorial: Day of the Dead Costume

Mackenzie’s Notes: I didn’t have any fake or real flowers laying around the house, and since I think that some roses are important to the whole look, I used about 2 feet of red glittery wired ribbon. I twisted the ribbon around in three sections until it looked like three roses. You can play around with it, but you don’t need to strive for highly realistic roses. I used three pins to pin it to my hair (one for each rosette).  That’s all you need since it’s very light and won’t fall off! Tuck the wiry ribbon ends under your braids. 
It’s easy, light, wearable and cute (glitter’s a plus)! You can try and make rosettes out of other colors and out of longer ribbon pieces - this way you’ll have a fuller head piece, depending on what you want.
 I was practicing, but you could try a straighter middle part and neater braids

I used a Martha Steward wired glitter ribbon from Kmart

I used 3 pins to attach the headpiece to my hair; try and tuck them under your hair!
