Day of the Dead Decorations & Supplies — Day of the Dead Skulls, Tattoos & Props
Everything's set for el Día del los Muertos — the Day of the Dead, an ancient Mexican festival now recreated in your home. The holiday honors the dearly departed, and it gently pokes fun at them as well, with costumes, with Day of the Dead tattoos, with iconic Day of the Dead decorations, and with ironic poems, anecdotes, and songs. Day of the Dead skulls symbolize death and rebirth; other calaveras, or skulls, are mocking epitaphs of friends that you contribute to the proceedings. No matter how you observe el Día del los Muertos — traditionally or with a distinctly North American spin, Day of the Dead decorations, sugar skulls, skeleton props, and costume accessories on this page allow you join the fiesta now celebrated worldwide — even by those who are still learning about the traditions, but are irresistibly drawn to the bright, folksy decorations and distinctive Day of the Dead skulls.
