I have been making these for a few years, they started out as a decoration for my halloween wedding and I've just kept making them, drawing a couple new tombstones each year.  I made copies of the original drawings and then applied them to foam core, cut them out and add triangle easels on the backs.







I also make a matching tin to store everything.  I used to be able to fit them into a round tin, but with the newly added ones I've had to switch to a larger rectangle tin (this one is 8"X10" and packed full).
Comments always welcomed and appreciated Smiley.

I never thought of tombstones as "cute", but I love these.  The candles really add to the display.
