Sugar Skulls for Dia de los Muertos

Dia de los Muertos (also known as Day of the Dead), is an annual holiday that is typically celebrated in central and southern Mexico. This holiday always occurs on the 1st and 2nd of November every year. Dia de los Muertos aims to celebrate the lives of the deceased with fancy foods and festivities that are typically enjoyed in life before death. This event is very colorful, joyful, and celebrated by many.

Sugar skulls (known as "calaveras de azucar" in Spanish), are used to decorate gravestones of the deceased. Sugar skulls are given as a gift to all - whether living and dead. For the dead, these sugar skulls are placed on a beautiful alter. November 1 is for the deceased children; the following day is for the adult spirits.

These treats are traditionally made with molded sugar and are decorated with glitter, icing, beads, feathers, and etc. Sugar skulls are designed to look colorful, vibrant, and cheerful.

To help celebrate the upcoming event, we've created our own sugar skulls. However, instead of being made of sugar, we've printed them on wood! You can hang them or proudly display them anywhere you'd like. They're sturdy, high-quality, and printed with the best type of ink.
