Sugar Skull Decorating

We've created this gallery of sugar skulls decorated for Day Of The Dead to help stimulate your creativity as you decorate your sugar skulls this year.  While not the most traditional decorations we offer some examples of creative uses for commonly found decorative objects. We suggest you browse the isles of your local craft shop for goodies.

Day Of The Dead Sugar Skulls

Our eclectic collection of hand made sugar skulls were crafted with goodies from the local craft store. We used lots of feathers, beads, sequins, and some colored. This is the time to let out your inner-child and just have a lot of fun.

Nixon Sugar Skull

We're not sure why we named this guy Nixon but he may be as close to a traditional sugar skull as we got. We used multiple colors of Royal Icing for his head and around the eyes. We added a feather so he didn't feel left out.
