Halloween is coming up QUICK. We bet you’ve already got your group costume on lock, your party ideas planned and all the spooky-cute snacks ready to make. But before you get lost in the Halloween craze, you better make sure your Dia de Los Muertos (starts Tuesday, Nov. 1, y’all!) plans are all set. This week’s Free Printable Friday has you covered with three printable sugar skull masks. Whether you throw a party every year or are just looking to bring a little traditional Calavera-inspired vibe to your Halloween, the printables below are just the face painting hack you need for an easy and super colorful look. Happy printing!


With three different options, you can change your look throughout the night, or just print a bunch for your epic photo booth.


Download the free printables here, print on thick paper, cut around the gray line and break out those popsicle sticks and glue for instant Calavera action.


You could even print enough to DIY your own garland. Just cut ’em out, use a hole punch and colorful string to make a pretty fireplace or wall hanging. If you are looking for more where that came from, be sure to check out our DIY mini sugar skulls to really take your decor to the next level.

We want to see your sugar skull masks this Dia de Los Muertos! Share the finished result with us on Instagram by using the hashtag #iamcreative.
