*Example of the assembled Mari Lwyd
Print out one or both of the Mari Lwyd patterns below and make her your own!
Tip #1 - Use card stock paper
You can certainly use regular printer paper, but if you have it on hand, the heavier stock paper will produce a better Mari Lwyd.
Tip #2 - Cut out and fold
Carefully cut out around the pattern. Be sure to cut out the solid black areas for the nose bone and mouth. (Adult supervision recommended).
Tip #3 - Decorate!
Mari Lwyd should be festive and fun. Add colors, ribbons, etc. To add patterns to her, I recommend drawing them on before folding into shape.
Tip #4 - Add your stick
She needs a dowel or stick for display
Tip #5 - Send us a pic!
