Book Summary

The Traditional Mexican event of Dia de los Muertos (21 October-2 November), which celebrates the lives of the deceased, has spread internationally alongside the growing popularity of Halloween festivites.

Both informative and practical, this book includes 20 easy-to-make projects. Several are based on the flowers, candles and sugar skulls that attract and guide the spirits to the altar, as well as food and drink ideas to create a fabulous centrepiece and treats for your party table. Fun decorations draw on Mexican crafts, including cut-paper banners and festive frills for fairy lights. The book also explains the spectacular look of La Catrina, the skeleton lady, with ideas for costumes and instructions on facial art.
