DIY Sugar Skull Skewers
This year, we wanted to take away the edge of this scary look and soften it up with pinks, oranges, and golds for a Halloween cocktail party. In preparation for that cocktail party, Natalie and I made these adorable sugar skull skewers, that are so easy to do at home.
You will need:
construction paper (we used pink)
cardstock (we used black glitter)
Step 1: Start out by printing this sugar skull stencil, placing it behind your construction paper and tracing the skull design against a window. If you’re feeling ambitious, draw your own skull designs, just keep the size at about 1-2 inches tall.
Step 2: Cut out your skulls, and then cut out the same shape and size in your cardstock so they match up.
Step 3: Use a hole puncher to punch out holes for the eyes. We placed our construction paper and cardstock together so the holes would line up perfectly.
Step 4: Time to glue! Glue your construction paper skull near the top of the skewer, then add the cardstock as a back, so the skewer is masked between the 2 pieces.
And that’s it! We can’t wait to show you how the full party turned out, so stay tuned for all the details.
