Day Of The Dead Wallpaper - Sugar Skull Floral Wall Mural [1] | Pitter Pattern

The Day of the Dead (Dia de Los Muertos in Spanish) is a Mexican multi-day holiday, starting on 31st October and ending on 2nd November. It celebrates deceased family and friends and honours them with festivals and lively celebrations including food, drinks, parties, and activities the dead enjoyed in life.

The most familiar symbols of the Dia de Los Muertos are the calacas and calaveras (skeletons and skulls), which are generally depicted as joyous rather than mournful figures. They appear everywhere during the festival, including carved skull masks, small figures made out of carved wood or fired clay, and sweet treats… And you can get them on fabulous wallpaper too!

Really good-looking Day of the Dead wallpaper is not easy to find. I’ve seen a few through the years but I think none as pretty as these ones. These gorgeous specimens are by Murals Wallpaper, a company providing made-to-order custom wallpaper murals for homes and businesses.

Some of the most recognisable symbols of Dia de los Muertos are the calaveras (skulls), which appear everywhere during the holiday as sweets, masks and dolls. This inspired the Murals Wallpaper collection, with the calacas forming the central motif of the murals. The prints embrace the spirit of the festival with bright tones and eye catching floral details. –

And here it is, the awesome Day of the Dead wallpaper…

    Love your designs I’ve built a coffin for ventnor carnival on the Isle of Wight Day of the dead theme better days caffe entry I’m wondering if I should decorate it with wall paper rather than painting it as it would take forever and I’m adhd so would never be happy with finish what’s your thoughts thanks. Johnnie

    • Hi Johnie, so happy you like the Day of the Dead wallpaper! I’m afraid is not my design though, I just featured it because it’s so lovely. Regarding the decoration of the coffin, I think it could look really good done with wallpaper, but it’s gonna be fiddly with all the corners and panels. It depends on how good you are at wallpapering! Good luck with the project :-)
