Halloween Tombstones DIY

Halloween was always such a fun time for me. Creativity was never my thing. I think I was the same witch for like five years in a row. Candy was what I wanted and that is what I got.

The holiday has definitely changed as I grew up. For many years, I didn't really care. No kids to take out and steal their candy, and I was too old to get any myself. 34 is still too old, but now I'm starting to love Halloween again.


What's Halloween without a bit of death? Tombstones are the easiest way to convey that. These tombstones are super simple to make and look great.

All you need are sticks and foam and then a carving instrument at the end.


First, cut your foam into the sizes and shapes that you want. Use tape or glue to stick them together.


After that, shove the sticks up in there as far as you can get them. I just used bamboo sticks that I had lying around.

After that, you are ready to start carving. If you have extra phone, practice on that first before starting on the final project.


After you have that done, you can add glow in the dark paint , dirt, and any other decor. Make them your own!


I had a lot of fun making these, but they were pretty hard on my hands, so it took me time to get them all carved. You should have them done within an hour depending on how many you make.


Well that's it. Super simple huh? Great to do last minute, especially if you already have everything you need to make them. As always, thank you for reading, have fun, and Happy Haunting!
