Make Sugar Skull Decor with Your Cricut

Written by: | Published: October 27, 2015 | Updated: November 09, 2019

Day of the Dead decor and celebration activities are always so bright and colorful. So I’ve created a fun set of Sugar Skull designs you can use to make Dia De Los Muertos decorations and party treats. Grab some twine and string up the cut out images or decorate a whole table design with these sugar skull art designs.




Sugar Skull Decor with Your Cricut

Whether you honor the Day of the Dead as part of your heritage or a new adoptee of the celebration, this art is for you. I hope the colors and flowing swirl art inspires you. Create colorful decor or use the black and white version and color it yourself.

  1. I love’d making thins project for my boss’s birthday. I could not figure out how to save it to “My Projects”. Is saving an option? (I am a newbie to the Wild Cool Cricut World!!!

    • What a fun birthday project! Yes, you can save your projects if you are in “customize” mode. When you click on a project to make in the Cricut Design Space, the lower left of the screen has the option to “make it now” or “customize. Choose customize and then if you want to save the project, look in the upper left of your screen. There should be a a little disk icon that says “save”. Follow the on screen instructions to save your project to your own account.

    • Hi! I’m sorry I missed this question earlier… hopefully you figured out how to save your project by now. But, if not, in the upper left of the screen, you are looking at the Cricut Design Space program, there is a file folder icon. If you click that icon, there are a few options, one is “save”. Let me know if you have trouble saving!
