Day of the Dead is getting so popular all over the world that everyone wants to get into the act of making cute sugar skull things for the celebration! Most of the items on this page didn't exist 20 years ago when I started selling Day of the Dead items. They in no way take the place of hand made traditional folk art which is the preferred way to celebrate this Mexican holiday, but many of these high quality, fun and interesting items are finding their way back to Mexico too.

When you hosts a Day of the Dead party in your home, it's becoming traditional to give away little DoD items as favors - also at conferences or large gatherings of people who acknowledge the importance of the day. Let's not forget the Day of the Dead themed weddings that are becoming popular in the U.S. that use lots of little colorful doo-dahs. Discounts on large quantities of some items available. Please contact us for details. Remember to checkout our Closeout Specials!

Spirit Skull Mask with Ribbons

NEW papier mâché Spirit Masks got a color make-over when Angela went to Mexico and worked with the artist on a new color palette. Bold bright colors to knock the socks off your muertos Our new artist in the state of Guanajuato has been making these papier mache masks for over 20 years!

While I wouldn't recommend them to be used as a real usable mask without first enlarging their eyes, they are perfect for wall decor, centerpieces or hanging on the wall. These are imported as traditional folk art and not to be purchased for wearable masks for children.

Masks are 8 1/4" high, 5 1/2" wide and 3" deep.

These fun, inexpensive skull masks come in deep, bright. Assorted colors. Mexico. Please let us know if there is a color you do NOT want in the Order Notes upon checkout.

This is the newest thing from our artist's workshop in the state of Guanajuato, Mexico.

All the museums in Mexico are buying these so thought we should do the same. Pouch is double the height of the cable bag and good for all kinds of things!

Medium Alegria Flaming Heart Milagro


Milagros are votive offerings to ask for healing in the Catholic Church. They are made many different ways around the world, but they basically are used as a symbolic image of what needs to be healed. Then hung on the wall behind the saint or on the clothing of the saint inside the church. Devout parishioners make milagros out of what they have - lost wax casting methods or hammering sheets of tin and silver are typical kinds of milagros.
