DIY ~ Dia de Los Muertos Mugs

Share This:



Dia de Los Muertos is fast approaching and I wanted to share an activity I did with the kids.  I found this gem on Pinterest and knew it would be perfect for hot chocolate.  Few supplies are needed which is always a plus.  I picked up a few coffee mugs at our local dollar store, handed the kiddos a few sharpies and we were on our way!

I did try to print, cut and transfer a skull stencil to the mug, but found it difficult to maneuver. Free hand was the best option. The kids had a blast and I had colorful new coffee mugs to enjoy with my morning coffee.

Gotta love that!!


I went with 80′s glam sharpie markers…. the color were FUN~~

A thick steamy cup of Mexican Hot Chocolate…. they look amazing, give them a try!

  5. Even though my heritage is not Hispanic, I adore Dia de los muertos! Growing up, my friends celebrated it and I fell in love with the holiday! Halloween is just a little too bland when compared with Dia de los muertos!

    I can’t wait to see what other foods you cook up this time of year! I’ll be cooking along with you :)
