Sugar Skulls & Fuzzy Friends – Fantastic Felting Kits!
Celebrate Dia de los Muertos with beautiful felted “sugar skulls”
Ornately decorated sugar skulls often adorn altars as part of the Mexican Dia de los Muertos celebration. Festivities begin on the evening of October 31st and last through November 2nd. It’s a time of reflection as well as celebration, when families reminisce and share offerings to the spirits of the dead. Lost loved ones are honored with altars that often feature fresh flowers, food, photographs and mementos, beautiful fabrics, candles, and vibrant sugar skulls.
Create your own celebratory sugar skulls, in 100% wool! Our Sugar Skulls Needle Felting Kit includes everything you need to make four vibrant wool skulls in an afternoon. This is a great project to do together with a group of friends. These whimsical skulls are a great addition to your altar or they make a fun and spooky wall hanging or decoration as part of a larger piece, such as a pillow cover or bag. (Suitable for ages 8+ with adult supervision – and fun for anyone!)
