Sugar skull makeup marigolds for Day of the Dead celebrations.
Marigolds, also called the Flower of Dead, is said to attract souls of the dead to offerings, so graves are often decorated with these traditional orange Mexican flowers.
Dia de Muertos is a wonderful Mexican holiday in the beginning of November where friends and family celebrate and honor those who have passed from this life. Graves are decorated in bright colors, marigolds and food are set out, and sugar skulls made to welcome the dead back for a visit.
