Day of the Dead Balloon DIY

This weekend isn't just Halloween. It also marks the Mexican Day of the Dead Festival. A celebration of both life and death, remembering those who are no longer with us in colourful festival style.

We've been busy designing our very own Day of the Dead inspired balloons, drawing on the iconic candy skill design. The balloons are so simple to recreate, all you need in a good permanent marker pen and a pack of plain white balloons! Then get creative! Draw on your unique candy skull designs and then inflate with helium to let them sway around the house and add some character to your Halloween or Day of the Dead parties this weekend. A perfect DIY decoration activity to get the kids involved with and teach them a little bit about the festivities of another culture.

So make sure this weekend isn't all about the spook and gore! As some colour and a touch of the Day of the Dead festivities to your weekend.

If you are focusing on the Day of the Dead or throwing a Halloween party in the spirit of this festival, then there is still time to grab a load of fancy dress, masks, decorations and more to get the festivities under way!

And remember! If you stop by in store to pick up your a few packs of white balloons and other decorations, then you could even get your Day of the Dead face paint done for free!

Will you be celebrating Day of the Dead this weekend?
