Use your awl or screwdriver to poke a hole in the center of the bottom of your black paper cup.
Insert your wooden skewer in the hole and move it back and forth slightly to make the correct sized hole for the skewer.
Next, create your tombstone backer. Cut a tombstone shape from your paper or cardstock. Use your marker to decorate. You can draw some cracks and write RIP as I have done, or design it however you like.
Center your tombstone on the seam of the cup and glue it on the back.
