Day of the Dead Hats

2 Day of the Dead tag board party hats - a top hat with sugar skulls and a Catrina hat

How cool is this??? These large flat hats, printed with colorful sugar skulls & bright flowers & ostrich feathers will be a blast to wear at a party, school or at festivals around town on November 1. The11 inch slit allows the hat to open up to a 22 inch circumference to fit most any adult head. Slit can be increased slightly if necessary, or made smaller for children, by taping the slit closed with strong tape. These really are quite nice and fit snugly on my head. These are the most cleaver thing I've seen for DoD fun.

Cover your head with Top Hat decorated with sugar skulls (12 1/2" wide x 14.5" high) or a Catrina Hat (17.5" wide x 9" high). Set comes with one of each hat. Made in Mexico. (shown on gold background with marigold top). Sugar skull masks are here

Skeleton dog framed in marigolds with dog bones in a purple bowl
In Mexico, dead dogs and cats would never be honored on an ofrenda because it's against the Catholic belief that animals are let into heaven, or allowed to return to visit with their families. True Day of the Dead believers in Mexico would cringe and think it insulting & in very bad taste to see Americans building ofrendas for their dead pets. However, these skeleton dogs and cats are intended to be hung on home ofrendas of pet lovers so the returning spirit might enjoy the memory of their beloved pets when they return.

If you squint your eyes and have a cold, you might think you were looking at strings of real marigolds! Two-pack. Each garland is printed on lightweight tag board and is 39 inches x 4 inches.

3D Pop-out Ofrenda in the Cemetery

Cemetery celebrations vary by region throughout Mexico - in the Oaxacan village of Xoxocotlan, thousands of people crowd the dark, old, stone walled cemetery as night falls. They anxiously await the return of their loved one's spirits at midnight, just as they are released from heaven for their 24 hour visit. Millions of candles illuminate the "pantion", as musicians sing serenades to the departed. People enjoy feeling the closeness with their "spirits" until dawn. This pop-out ofrenda reminds me of those chilly nights that warmed my heart. 14 1/2" wide x 15" high x 6" deep. Made in Mexico (shown on blue background)
A2103 $9.50 each
decorated 3-D pop-out altar with lift up coffin jumping skeleton on stick

3D Pop-out Ofrenda w Peek-a-Boo Muerto

Home ofrendas are built in the main room of the house the day before Day of the Dead begins. Ofrenda designs vary from region to region in Mexico, but they all use organic materials available in the region. In the Yucatan, where it's very hot & humid, offerings of fruit hang by string over the banana leaf covered ofrenda. In the state of Mexico and Oaxaca, you see the most sugar skulls... I've strange things too! Since family members put things on the ofrenda to delight the spirits, I've seen Playboy magazines, cigars, playing cards, knitting needles and imported Brachs lemon drops. This pop-out ofrenda has room on the sides for personalization if you choose. Add a photo or remembrance. The lid of the coffin opens to let the happy skeleton peep out. (shown on blue background)
14 1/2" wide x 15" high x 6" deep Made in Mexico.

Jumping Skeleton on Stick

Jumping skeletons on a stick have been a traditional fun toy since the Colonial Period of Mexico. Then, hand painted pressed cardboard was painted with watercolor type paint or silk screened. Today's kids might not think these are as fun as video games, but for adults, they make great decorations, stick in a floral arrangement or just hang out on your coffee table.

Sugar Skull Masks

Many indigenous villages throughout southern Mexico have small marches in the streets during Day of the Dead. Sometimes, it is a group of friends who are marching to the cemetery, or other times, groups gather with a tuba player and a big 14 foot tall papier mache woman with floppy arms with a dancer looking out from the belly button as it dances down the middle of the street. These are called "muneca de calendas", or parade dolls. People really don't wear masks or face painting much in Mexico for Dia de los Muertos, but the Halloween influence is changing a bit of the traditions.

While we all love to celebrate Day of the Dead with authentic folk art, support the vanishing Mexican artists and keep alive the tradition of hand made crafts ... sometimes folks like school teachers and party planners just need big, colorful, festive graphics for their projects. When I found these items that are designed in Pennsylvania, I decided to add them to our offerings. I think the designer must have spent several years participating in cemetery fiestas in Oaxaca and Michoacan in order to capture the festive nature of the holiday - use of cempasuchil wild marigolds, Posada-esque looking dancing skeletons, accuracy in cemetery "musicos" outfits, sugar skull decoration and the omnipresent Catrina. Note some items come bilingual! ~Angela
