DIY Tombstone Halloween Party Candy Holders Made with a Cricut


Tomorrow is our Halloween party so last night I made up little Tombstone candy holders for each of the kids coming to the party.  The cricut pattern can be found in the Cricut Design Space.

For this project, you will need card stock (I chose black and grey), a Cricut marker (I used silver on the black card stock and black on the grey card stock) and a scoring tool.  You can get away without the scoring tool but it makes the project 100 times easier with one.  Also, you can choose from 4 different Tombstone designs (each one costs 99¢ so I picked 2 and ended up only really liking one so Kaley is the only person who got the second design – see pic below)

It really is so simple to do projects with a Cricut Explore machine because the software pretty much does all the work for it. It will tell you step by step what you need to do for each step in the process.


Once your pieces are cut out, you will need to either glue or tape the tombstones together. I choose an Elmer’s Craft Bond adhesive roller but it wasn’t strong enough to hold them together with candy inside so I had to go back and tape the inside. Maybe a stronger glue would have been better???

Here is a close up view from the top:


NOTE: In my top photo, you can see Mummy Wrapped Hershey’s Bars. If you want the instructions for that project, GO HERE. They are super simple to do and turn out so cute !

HUGE Clearance at Super Walmart on East Colonial in Orlando


I just left super Walmart off east Colonial Dr where there is a HUGE clearance section (including a ton of Lego sets).  Prices were amazingly low but they seemed like a good mark-down.  Great way to stock up on some Christmas gifts.
