DIY Frida Kahlo head vase

With Cinco de Mayo this week we decided to add to the celebration with a special version of our popular DIY Head vase tutorial: Frida Kahlo, of course! With her signature flowers in the hair, a vase was a perfect vessel to keep them in tact! Learn how to make it below!

Follow the instructions here to make the head vase but change the features of the face so it appears more like Frida. Paint a unibrow (essential!), red lips, and lots of rouge.

  • black paint
  1. Cut the crepe paper into small strips about 3′ long
