Mexican Sugar Skulls

Sugar skulls? What the heck are those? Maybe it’s because I’m Canadian. Maybe it’s because I’ve never been to Mexico. Whatever the reason, I had never seen or heard of Mexican sugar skulls. That is, until a couple of weeks ago when I was surfing for kid’s halloween costumes and then came across this site for Mexican sugar skulls. How enchanting! These would make fabulous favors for a Halloween wedding!

Mexican sugar skulls or calaveras de azúcar are used to adorn altars on The Day of the Dead.

Then I found this tutorial on how to make sugar skulls. And this one too. And this one.

I will definitely be making these for halloween next  year!

    I've never heard of these before, either. They are very cool.

    When I first saw these, I thought CREEPY! After giving them another look, I think they would be adorable favours for a Halloween themed wedding. I can see them wrapped in clear cello bags and tied with coordinating ribbon. Very fun!

    I have never heard of them either but I love the way they look. They would make a wonderful treat for a Halloween themed event.
