Dia De Los Muertos (Day of the Dead) is a two-day holiday primarily celebrated in Mexico and throughout some Latin American countries during the first and second of November. The holiday is known to reunite the living and the dead, as families gather together to create ofrendas—altars with offerings—in the home or at the cemetery. The ofrendas are made to honor family members who have passed and items offered tend to be foods or other items that the departed enjoyed in their life as that relative is the honored guest. The offerings are meant to encourage a visit from the departed and they can rejoin their family members in celebration of death and life. Much of the decorations around an ofrenda are floral, whether real or handmade with crepe paper, candles, papel picado (tissue paper banners depicting different scenes or motifs), small religious statues, and molded sugar skulls are the iconic motifs seen around the traditional celebration.

One of the most well-known icons of Dia De Los Muertos is La Calavera Catrina. The depiction was originally a satirized image of upper-class women in Mexican and not long after became an icon of Dia De Los Muertos. Her image is a skeleton wearing early 20th-century clothing and widely known for the large hat. Variations of La Calavera Catrina are seen throughout many stylized images throughout the celebration as the symbol of death.

With many digital designs here on Creative Fabrica, there are endless possibilities to make your own Dia De Los Muertos decorations, apparel, or household items to celebrate the reunion of loved ones. Your special touch to honor your departed loved ones can make the celebration incredibly special.

Let’s get to the ideas!
