I’m obsessed with Day of the Dead imagery lately. There is just something about the meaning behind this Hispanic holiday that celebrates loved ones that have passed away and encourages us to be joyful about the lives they have lived .

The other day I came across a Day of the Dead dog sugar skull design on the internet that really inspired me and got me thinking. When it comes to remembering family members and loved ones during el Dia de los Muertos we often forget our four legged best friends. Growing up I had a few dogs that where really part of the family and I always remember them fondly.

So I decided to create a fun Day of the Dead coffin gift box and designed my own sugar skull dog, this one inspired on the dog I had when growing up.

To make the Day of the Dead inspired coffin gift box you will need a cardboard coffin box, I got mine at Amazon, spay adhesive, paper, a printer and scissors.
