Free Friday: Gravestone Magnet

Happy Friday, everyone!  Are you all having a good week?  Mine has been kind of chill.  I'm feeling really lazy lately and I'm not quite sure why.  My mom always told me it was the change in weather that made people sleepy in October, but it's been in the high 70s all week!  So I can't use that as an excuse.

Are you getting ready for Halloween yet?  I just LOVE Halloween!  I have all of my decorations out already and we have our candy bought and ready for when the trick-or-treaters come.  Oh I'm so excited!

So in honor of the ghoulish season, I decided to post one of my gravestone magnet patterns!  If you like this one, there is a full set in my Etsy shop selling for $3!  Check them out!

Gravestone Magnet

Skill Level:



  • One sheet 7-count plastic canvas
  • Red Heart yarns in key
  • ½ inch Flexible magnetic tape
  • Craft glue


  1. Cut plastic canvas according to graphs.
  2. Use graphs as a guide to stitch gravestones using Red Heart yarn in colors indicated on graph.
  3. Overcast each gravestone in Putty yarn.
  4. Cut several pieces of magnetic tape to fit on the back of gravestones. Remove paper from magnets and apply glue to sticky side before attaching to gravestones. This may seem like overkill, but it makes for a very secure bond.

Have a great weekend everyone!  I'll be out biking while the weather is still nice!
