Sugar Skull Plates DIY

Nothing better than a funky plate to make your dinner table look amazing, don't you think?!  These sugar skull plates are super easy to make AND you can eat off of them!  How cool is that!  Because all of the paint and decoupage is on the back, they're completely food safe.  I got my images at GraphicStock.com.  They're having a free 7 day trial and you can download tons of images for free.  Just like the images I used for this project.  My glass plates are from the 99c store, but you can get them for pennies at Ikea.  Have fun!

Love this color combo!
I made them in every color under the sun
Try picking a color from the skull for your background
This citrus yellow is one of my favorite Krylon colors

  2. I did something like this for a Day of the Dead party for Festivities magazine a few years ago, but I cut out tissue paper skulls (papel picado style). This looks WAY easier, and the finished product is fabulous! Love. Nikki from Tikkido.com.
