Spirit Altars

In honor of Dia de los Muertos, we used the photos from our recent Divine Spirit Friday art-shoot to create these decorative altars from cigar boxes. Although we are not technically dead, we just used the spirit of this holiday to have some art play together and to get the glitter out!  The Day of the Dead ritual embraces death and celebrates friends and family who have deceased by creating altars in their homes, offering flowers and candles and decorating their grave sites.  Dia de los Muertos coincides with All Saints' Day and All Souls' Day, November 1st and 2nd and is celebrated throughout Mexico. 


  1. This was the best DSF (and Sunday, and Monday, and Tuesday and Wednesay!!) ever, in my opinion!!!! We didn't even scratch the surface of the huge supply of stuff that I have to fuel our creative endeavors....looking forward to more art, more glitter and of course, more good times with my Divine Sisters!!! XOXOXOXOX
