About this item

Celebrate The Day of the Dead with 20 Fun Projects!

The growing popularity of Dia de los Muertos—The Day of the Dead—can be seen in the increased number of festivals, music concerts, art fairs, altar nights, arts-and-crafts events, costume contests, and candlelit processions (including the famed one held at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery). Now you can bring the essence of Mexico's beloved traditions to your own themed party with this evocative guide that includes 20 practical projects. Learn the origins and rituals of this special festival and how to:
  • Create a respectful and beautiful decorated altar with projects for Flor de Muerto (marigold paper pom-poms), Calavaras (sugar skulls), Pan de Muerto (bread of the dead), Mezcal shooters, and more
  • Find inspiration in traditional Mexicana Art and Artisania to create projects such as Papel picado (cut-tissue paper decorations), fairy light embellishments, embroidered napkins, and more
  • Explore the spectacular look of La Catrina (Mexico's skeleton lady) with ideas for women's and men's costumes and instructions for facial art designs, a floral headdress, felt hat, and more
You'll also discover other ideas for events with a Day of the Dead theme, including poetry readings, music, and dancing. Features a directory of Day of the Dead festivals and parades.
