Introduction: Day of the Dead Altar (sugar Skulls, Flower, Pan De Muerto)

This is my second instructable ever and they're a couple of steps. I made a day of the dead altar using the design for the thinking process. The first step, empathizing phase were you interview people and you get feedback. Then the second step is called ideation were I write down all my ideas. I also have to consider my drivers and constraints, these are the ones I came up with:

Drivers: Cultural, creative, festive. Constraints: Cheap, easy, cool. Next, the third step ideation when I start drawing my ideas. Finally, the fourth and fifth step prototype and test were you basically start building. Click here to see pictures to the steps:
