Where do Sugarskulls come from? They are part of the Mexican holiday, the traditional “Dia de los Muertos” or “Day of the Dead”, the detailed skulls are decorated magnificently and are beautiful.

What is the most distinctive detail? The spiderweb on the forehead is their trademark. If you’re on a budget, or you simply don’t want to dress up, Sugarskulls are a perfect Halloween idea.

Follow your imagination, add as much color, detail you wish for. Maybe you want glitter, sparkles, or rhinestones all over? Go for it, but don’t forget the spiderweb!
