Last weekend I had a lovely afternoon decorating Mexican Sugar Skulls with some crafty ladies.
Sugar Skull are treats that are offered to the returning spirits on Dia De Los Muertos, which is November 1st.
The week leading up to The Day of The Dead is celebrated by creating alters in the home with photos of the departed, and special food. Candy and toys are offed to the spirits of lost children and adult spirits even get mescal and cigarettes.
The sugar skulls were easy to make with a mold I got as a gift from this site. They have many more molds and I may need to add to my collection. Because easily I can see this becoming an Annual Tradition.
Blogger is breaking my heart and not letting me upload all my pictures today... So Go to my Flickr to see more!
