Some of my favourite sugar skull crafts for Halloween

With Halloween approaching I thought I'd share some of my favourite sugar skull crafts, in case you are looking for some simple Halloween d├ęcor inspiration!

Embroidered felt sugar skulls

I think these are my favourite Halloween craft. They are so simple to make with white felt and odd scraps of coloured felt. I added sequins and tiny beads and embroidered in contrasting thread colours. You could add a ribbon loop for hanging, string them together to make bunting, or simply pile them in a bowl and leave out on display.

Painted wooden sugar skull craft

I bought these wooden skull blanks from Hobbycraft last year and knew that they would make perfect sugar skull decorations. We painted them white to start with then decorated with acrylic paint, felt pens, sequins and plastic gems.

Hama bead sugar skull bunting

This Hama bead craft is a great way to use up any odd coloured beads that you have lying around. Strung on black ribbon these Hama bead sugar skulls make great bunting.

Mini Hama bead sugar skull earrings

I used the same Hama bead pattern with the tiny mini Hama beads to make a pair of delicate sugar skull earrings. You could make matching or contrasting ones, they could also be mounted on pin badge backings to make badges.

The Hama bead sugar skulls also look great displayed on a black background for a spooky Halloween picture.

The last three sugar skull crafts were made using this simple Hama bead cross stitch or pixel art design. It would also be perfect for some cross stitch Hama bead sugar skulls, something that I'm going to be working on for next year!
