Day of the Dead Arts and Crafts

All Souls' Day is coming up on November 2- this is also known as the Day of the Dead (Spanish: Día de los Muertos). I love all the colorful skulls used to celebrate this day in Mexico! I'm a really colorful person- I know... total shocker! :-P

Make this centerpiece with Dollar Store Crafts.

Deep Space Sparkle.

I found this Day of the Dead Sandwich on Edible Crafts.

Find directions on how to make Edible Sugar Skulls
on Dollar Tree Crafts! (These sugar skulls by Crafty Chica).
Sugar skulls are super traditional for this day. 

Buzzville has directions for making this cute 

Another traditional treat you can try is
Bread of the Dead. This recipe is from MEXonline.

I'm hoping to have the time to try out the sugar skulls with my kids this year, and I did get a skull ice cube tray from the Dollar Tree for molding them. And of course, don't forget to pray for the deceased. :-)
