Embroidered felt sugar skulls craft for Halloween

I've really been enjoying crafting with felt lately. After I sewed these felt Autumn leaves my thoughts turned to Halloween, and seeing that I had plenty of white felt in my stash I decided to make some felt sugar skulls. I also took the opportunity to sort through my sequin collection and discovered some fantastic flower sequins which I knew would be perfect for the eyes, and that gave me my starting point. I made four skulls, each one measures about 10cm in height and each one is different.

They were so easy and quick to make. I made paper templates for the different pieces, cut them out and then sewed them together, sometimes using matching thread and sometimes using contrasting colours. I tried to spread the colours out across the skulls so that they work well together as well as on their own.

If like me you have various scraps of coloured felt and a collection of sequins and beads this is the perfect craft for a bit of stash busting! They would also make great hanging decorations with a loop of string or ribbon, or could be strung onto bunting. I always make a window display for our house on Halloween and these sugar skulls will definitely be making an appearance!

I loved making these felt sugar skulls and I'm filled with ideas for making more. I have some lovely bright colours of felt in my stash so I think that next time I might use brighter colours for the background rather than the white. I quite fancy having a big bowl on display filled with tiny felt sugar skulls in a rainbow of colours!
