Dia de los muertos

November 2nd is “dia de los muertos” or “day of the dead” in Mexico where dead loved ones are remembered and celebrated with sugar skulls, colourful decorations and shrines. I really like the sound of this tradition and the ideals behind it, and thought today i would show some handmade items from both Folksy and Etsy that should you be celebrating dia de los muertos this year would be perfect to decorate yourself or your home with!

  1. Hey Linzi, this blog post seriously catered to my taste in things! Dia de los Muertos is great, it has so much madness in it! I like to see death and dark stuff being portrayed in a mad and cheery way, instead of just sad and gloomy. I’m such a perky-goth:P
