One brilliant thing about subscription boxes, is that they help you celebrate the seasons and events that may otherwise pass you by. For example, you may not have even been aware of the Mexican festival Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead), which is devoted to loving and honouring the deceased.
If you think it sounds a big gloomy, don’t fret, for Day of the Dead is an explosion of colour and joy, captured perfectly in the sugar skull ornaments which have been common a symbol for the festival, and are brightly decorated with beautiful jewelled eyes.
This month, Makerley have taken the inspiration from these trinkets and combined them with quilling – where you use strips of paper to create intricate patterns – to create a sugar skull decoration that is every inch as beautiful as the real thing.
Don’t believe us? Just take a look at the unboxing video above, which this month contains everything you need to make your very own decoration.
