Dia De Los Muertos Embroidery Patterns

At my house we don't do much celebrating for Day of the Dead, but I find many of the decorations to be pretty fun. So last year I designed a printable wreath project for Handmade Charlotte. The wreath features layered flowers and sugar skulls...with a bit of a Wild Olive flair.

I always thought they'd make excellent embroidery patterns too, so I adapted them slightly so they are stitchable.

They can be used as individual motifs, but I think they'd be fantastic layered. You know, a skull with a grouping of flowers, or maybe even a few skulls for a larger design! I'll leave that up to you.

I did take the liberty of choosing a few colors that would be fun for your Dia de los Muertos stitching...

Add some black and/ or white to these DMC colors and you'll be ready to stitch a celebration!


And then don't forget to check out the printable wreath. There are more skull designs there too, so you may even be inspired to create your own decorative designs on the sugar skull outline!

  9. This gives all men who work out Alpha Peak an edge, no matter their level of experience. There is simply not enough literature on how rest and recovery helps men build muscle after they work out. There is no money to be made from this, which is why so many men are unaware of it. http://mirahealthgarciniablog.com/alpha-peak/
