Mexico’s Day of the Dead, or Dia de los Muertos, is distinctly different from Halloween. It’s a festive, up-beat, family-centred celebration of friends and relatives no longer with us, full of rich and colourful imagery and also paper craft traditions and that’s what inspired paper printables experts Happythought to put together this party kit.

The kit includes party invites and envelopes, coffin favor boxes, cupcake toppers and wrappers, sugar skull masks and bow ties, paper top hats, skull garland, pinwheels and popcorn boxes. The idea is that you download, print out and make all the items. You can print as many as you want and use the kit over and over. Happythought try to make their products as simple as possible to make, most just require scissors and a glue stick, and all come with easy to follow instructions. They have also put together some Day of the Dead recipes, video tutorials (crepe paper flowers and papel picado crepe paper banners) and free printables on their blog:
