This Sugar Skull Themed Knitting Crocheting Craft Collection are beautiful projects that are very popular during Halloween and Day of the Dead (Dia de los Muertos) even though they are two very different holidays. Plus there are so many people who just adore wearing decorative skulls styled in their clothing.
Day of the Dead is an interesting holiday celebrated in central and southern Mexico during the chilly days of November 1 & 2. Even though this coincides with the Catholic holiday called All Soul’s & All Saint’s Day, the indigenous people have combined this with their own ancient beliefs of honoring their deceased loved ones.
Sugar skulls represented a departed soul, had the name written on the forehead and was placed on the home offering or gravestone to honor the return of a particular spirit. Sugar skull art reflects the folk art style of big happy smiles, colorful icing and sparkly tin and glittery adornments.
