If you haven't already decided on a Halloween costume, here's an easy and fun idea. I have always been attracted to the bright colors and festivities of the Dia De Los Muertos, a Mexican celebration that remembers and honors the dead. Calaveras (decorative candy skulls) are one of the traditional symbols of this festival and are a perfect costume. Paint the face, wear (warm!) black clothes, and voila! You are a floating candy.
Here's what you need:
Step by step:
Once the basic skull is done, the more creative, colorful, and elaborate designs the better—but simple works too.
My daughter got the basic idea once I did her makeup and really wanted to try her hand at the application (my husband was her guinea pig).
To be honest, she didn't do too bad! And she has decided she will be adding a mustache so people know that her dad is a boy.
This weekend my family and I are attending a super fun outdoor party as a family of candy skulls. We'll look festive but still keep warm. Regardless of what your plans are, get creative, try something new, and enjoy the treats!
Have a question just ask me.....
