A grave situation: Tutorials for making Halloween tombstones

On Halloween night, are you the neighborhood’s haunted house? Every neighborhood has one, and in our neighborhood, it’s the corner house two blocks down the street. Each year, we make a point to drive by this looming, Victorian home to check out the ever changing, always creepy display. If you’re that home, or are just looking for a new idea, check out our three excellent tutorials for crafting Halloween tombstones from STYROFOAM Brand Foam.

A full moon hovers over our tombstone arrangement that’s perfect for a centerpiece or tabletop display. If you like a “spirited” display but you don’t want a full-size graveyard, this is the one for you. The Haunted Halloween Tombstone instructions are on StyrofoamCrafts.com.
