Remember my sister’s birthday post? Well, since I loved everything that I made her (like usual), I’ve decided to make them all for myself (:) ), so I could put up tutorials! I’m starting with the sugar skull planter, and what’s great about this, and sugar skulls in general, is that you can go crazy with them. The more, the better! Doodle all over it and use a brazillion colors! I had a small planter on hand, but you could use whatever size you have, or want. If I had a backyard I’d make a gigantic one! Here’s where I got the idea to make mine.
I started by painting the pot white (obviously you could paint it whatever you’d like, but I wanted white). I also painted only one thin coat, because I felt like it gave a skeleton feel to it. I didn’t worry about getting the inside because you won’t see it with the plant in it anyway.
You can google sugar skulls or day of the dead skulls and come up with your own design, or copy mine ;). There’s SOOO many different styles kinds out there though!
