Sugar skulls are another tradition for Dia de los Muertos. These skulls can be painted very elaborately and I am amazed at the talented artists who can paint on such small surfaces. You can click here for more info and some pictures of sugar skulls. Since I don't have the skull molds, I stamped skulls (from the poison bottle stamp) and tried to draw designs on those. Here is my sugar skull card:
Again, I used lots of flowers because you see lots of flowers for Dia de los Muertos. I added some black stickles to the eyes and noses for a little extra sparkle, too.
My kids had a great time last night out in our neighborhood. I will try to post a photo of them next time. This afternoon I have the tedious task of making my annual "Cookie List" for our cookie party in December. Do you have a favorite Christmas/holiday cookie? I love candy cane cookies and peanut blossoms. Who am I kidding? I love all the cookies!!!! Hope you have a great day!
