Make Your Own Mini Tombstones

Updated:2013-08-16 15:25:54
Decorating for Halloween is fun for children and adults alike. Stores sell a variety of full-size and mini tombstone decorations, but you can save money by making your own mini tombstones. You may already have many of the supplies in your home. This is a great project for the whole family. Make a few or a lot of mini tombstones to create your own mini graveyard. Pack them away in a box to be used every year.

Instructions as follows:

                                               

                                               

Firstly, cover your work surface with newspaper.
Secondly, measure mini tombstone shapes that are 3 inches tall by 2 inches wide on a sheet of Styrofoam.
Thirdly, cut the mini tombstone shapes from the sheet of Styrofoam.
Fourthly, use the craft knife to gouge out small pieces on the flat part and sides of the mini tombstones.
Fifthly, push the toothpicks about half an inch into the bottom of the mini tombstones.
Sixthly, stick the end of the toothpick you're holding into the Styrofoam block.
Seventhly, paint the tombstones dark gray with a flat paintbrush. Let dry completely and apply a second coat if needed.
Eighthly, dip a round paintbrush in light gray paint, then wipe the excess onto the paper towel.
Ninthly, swipe the paintbrush lightly along the edges and flat part of the mini tombstones.
Tenthly, repeat Steps 8 and 9 until the edges are a lighter color and the flat part of the stone look aged.
Eleventh, write R.I.P. or a name on the mini tombstones with a fine-tip paintbrush and black paint, or use a black fine-point marker.
