Day of the Dead (Dia de los Muertos) is an important holiday here in San Antonio so I created a special Day of the Dead skull wreath to add to commemorate it! If you're not familiar with the Day of the Dead, it is a holiday traditionally celebrated in Mexico the day after Halloween to honor deceased loved ones. The holiday is known for its colorful "sugar skulls" that have become popular Halloween decorations in the past couple years.
I made this wreath with an unexpected supply - plastic skull eggs from Oriental Trading. But I didn't stop at the wreath, I decided to decorate a Day of the Dead themed mantel. Check it out!
