Candy-Filled Headstones

Source: Martha Stewart Living, Volume 143 October 2005


Only brave party guests dare disturb the tasty contents of these graves. The candy-filled headstones are mini black paper bags placed in a tray filled with black sand; for the harrowing how-to, see below. Beside the graveyard, candles float in "blood," made by tinting water with red and blue food coloring.


  • Black paper bag

  • Candy

  • Glue

  • Stamp with white ink
