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 fabric remnants. If you sew or if you are a crafter you can probably find many of things in your supply closet. This is the time to let out your inner-child and just have a lot of fun.

Fatima is decorated with a large feather boa and beaded head dress,
Sweet Baby Jane has pretty yellow locks, a feather neck dress and those goo-googly eyes!
And a gritty pirate he is! Our fellow is decorated with soily smudges, a black bandanna and a very cool earring.
Count Blackula sports a black cape, a feather cowl (clearly his feminine side) and some nice white, frosted fangs.
Dead Dude has big beaded eyes that match his red crop of fluffy punk hair. His facial piercings are made with sequins.
Ms Tillie has eyes that don't match up made with different beads. Her hair is decorated with some pretty feathers and red beads.
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.
