On November 1st and 2nd, people in Mexico and throughout the world will celebrate the life of a loved one who has passed on. Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, is meant to be a joyous occasion that allows friends and relatives to reconnect both emotionally and spiritually, even if only for one evening.
Below are three fun Day of the Dead projects and tutorials from some of my favorite bloggers that may just motivate you to join in on this age-old tradition!
