Crochet Card Project: Sugar Skull

During the celebration of the Day of the Dead, sugar skulls are often used to decorate the offerings, and they are exactly what their name describes: skull-shaped sugar. The sugar mixture is allowed to dry and this sugar skull is decorated with bright colors such as flowers, beads and buttons. This one is non-edible!!
