Free Printable: Day of the Dead Sugar Skulls Cupcake Toppers

The Day of the Dead is one of my favorite celebrations. I love it not only because it is so colorful, but also because it makes me think about my family, and traditions I grew up with in Mexico. So every year I feel excited about creating something inspired by the Day of the Dead to decorate my home and make the ofrenda for my grandpa, aunts and friends.

Sugar skulls are probably one of my favorite elements from the Day of the Dead’s celebration. These calaveritas are sometimes difficult to find in the United States. For that reason we made our own version of sugar skull using white chocolate in the past years. You can find the tutorials here and here in case you would like to make some, which I totally recommend because making chocolate sugar skulls is so much fun, especially for the kids!

If you are not into buying or making sugar skulls, what about printing them? I painted these calaveritas the other day, I shared them on Instagram and asked about what should I make with them and one of the first suggestions was that they would look super cute as cupcake toppers. So I put together a free printable that you can download, print and use to decorate cupcakes, muffins, gifts and other things that come to mind this Halloween and Day of the Dead.

How Are You Going To Celebrate Piñata Day?

The cutest mini piñatas | Live Colorful

In honor of Piñata Day, I’m sharing my favorite handmade mini piñatas created by J Balloon Fiesta. I met this talented lady at We All Grow 2017 conference a few months ago. She is extremely talented, creative and made me feel inspired after seeing her passion for her business and family.

She sent me these three adorable designs from her shop. Frida Kahlo piñata, lucha libre piñata y señorita cactus piñata. She is now making postcards and stickers with empowering funny quotes related to the piñatas such as “señorita nopal, soy mujer tocame y verás” and  “lucha por tus Sueños”. They are super cute!
