Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead), is a colorful and festive holiday when family and friends remember their honored ancestors and loved ones who have died. The celebration evolved from Aztec and Catholic traditions in Mexico and is now celebrated in Hispanic communities around the world. From Oct 31 - Nov 2 many families visit the graves of loved ones or decorate altars with marigolds, funny poems or stories, and the favorite foods of their departed family members. The spirits of loved ones are invited to stop in for a happy visit to join the festivities.
Decorative skulls, with humorous or beautifully intricate designs, are featured at many parades and family gatherings as a symbol of the cycle of life. Here are two Popcorn Skull crafts for your special Dia de los Muertos get-together:
Popcorn Skull – Large Decoration or Edible Centerpiece
Use a black sharpie marker to draw your favorite skull design on the bag -- you can easily fit one skull design on the front and a different design on the back of the bag. Display your Popcorn Skull by the altar or as a greeting for party guests.
Mini Popcorn Skull Snack Bags:
Give each guest a small clear plastic bag and a black marker to draw a skull face on the bottom part of their small clear bag. Use a cup to scoop popcorn out of the large Pop Party Pack into the small decorated bags – filling each bag ¾ full with popcorn. Secure bags with a twist-tie.
