Dia De Los Muertos or Day of the Dead is a celebration and rememberance of the lives of those who have passed on. It is celebrated November 1st and 2nd.
Day of the Dead Calavera Mask -Really cute and colorful
Printable Jar and Candle Wraps – I have loads of Mason Jars and that I am definitely planning to do this with.
Day of the Dead Sun Catchers – Another cute idea. I haven’t done this one yet, but there are a bunch of variations you could do with this. You can cut the skull out of Cardboard/Cardstock and use tissue paper
on the backside if you have smaller kids working on this project.
Dia De Los Muertos Paper Box – This one is a really cute craft project. My daughter (12 yrs old) made a hand full of these for Halloween last year and gave them out to her friends with candy inside of them. We printed them on Cardstock Paper.
A little background on Owls and Why I included an Owl Set of Coloring Sheets – Not that owls necessarily apply to Dia De Los Muertos but often have tributing factors in many cultures…and I really like owls too.

Great Project for a wire art enthusiast. These would make really neat necklaces if they had ribbon attached.
