Crocheted Sugar Skulls

This is what happens when you get a slight case of insomnia!!  I crocheted up five of these last night.  Who doesn't like sugar skulls??!! 


This afternoon I had an idea with how to finish them off.   I was completely distracted from my housework by this time.  LOL!  

I thought they would be cute appliqued on a granny square. 

And granny squares make perfect potholders!!!!  Now how cute is this??


If you would like the pattern for the little skull you can find it here.  It is an awesome little tutorial and will take all of 30 minutes to bang one out.  The fun part is adding the little flowers and bows!!


I thought they turned out so cute.  The would also be cute appliqued onto a crocheted cap, or a purse.  I have seen some blinged out with buttons and some embroidery too.  

I have also kept myself busy making more pumpkins.  I did a bit of experimenting.  If you use two strands of yarn and a larger hook, you get what you see below!  They mix well with the smaller size!



More leaves and pumpkins!  They are everywhere!  These are headed to a knew home at my sister's house!  

It is time to think about winding down and get ready to start a new week.  It has been a gorgeous weekend.  I hate to see it end!!

Everyone take care!

What an amazing pile of goodies you have in this post. The skulls are definitely cute and different. You could make a bunting of skulls too! What a cute decoration for Halloween. Love all those leaves and pumpkins.
