Introduction: Sugar Skull Flameless Votives
This is a quick, fun and easy project that is great for Halloween and year round. This is the remix of Sugar Skull String Lights !
Step 1: Materials
Skull shaped candy bowls - Target dollar section and also at Dollar tree.
Permanent markers in as many colors as you have!
LED tea lights.
Step 2: Drawing on Your Skulls.
Start by Googleing sugar skulls. This will give you many designs to use as inspiration. Above there is a screen capture of some of the results.
Using a dark color marker to fill the eyes, nose and mouth of the skull. Then start your designs on the skull going from lighter to darker colors. Use a black marker to outline your designs. You can make all the skulls in the design and do variations on the colors. I chose to do six different styles.
Step 3: Placing the LED Tealight
Just turn on the the LED tealight and pop it into top of skull. That’s it!
For more variety you can use steady, flickering or color changing tealights.
