Tombstone Headstone Graveyard - Make a Cemetery
in Your Front Yard
By Jillian Gallo
You can build a Tombstone Headstone graveyard in your front
yard...or back yard if you like! A graveyard scene is
one of the coolest decorations you can make in October.
What a great way to add to the spooky, fun feeling we
all get around Halloween! Now, let's find out how you
can make a scary cemetery scene right in you very own
First, don't wait until the very last minute! Some
graveyards can be quite elaborate, and you won't be able
to do that in a few days. Plan out what you want your
boneyard to look like. You can plan how many tombstones
you want and where you want to put them to make your
potters field as ghoulish as you can.
If you are creating your very first Tombstone Headstone graveyard,
keep it simple this time. When you are more experienced
you can build a more elaborate burying ground.
It's Easy to Build a Graveyard
An easy way to build a graveyard scene is to make your
own headstones from cardboard. Cut the card board in a
tombstone shape and paint it gray. Think of funny
epitaphs to write one each one. Bill is dead, the end,
or Bill was a liar when he was alive, and now all he
does is lie. Or write some funny names on them I.B. Dead
or U. R. Next. Hang a sign that says "Welcome to
Make Some Tombstones
You can also buy simple cardboard tombstones from an
online Tombstone Headstone catalog store. They have pre- made
stones that are ready for you to set up. Some tombstones
are made of cardboard and some are made of foam. These
tombstones can be pre-assembled or you might have to put
them together with the help of clips or glue. They might
even be attached to a wooden stake that you just have to
stick in the ground.
How ever you decide to get your tombstones, when you
have them, place them where you want them in your yard.
Wow, it's starting to look pretty good, you are almost
done! Put some leaves in front of each stone, so it
looks like a burial mound. Get some fake spiderweb
material and string it from one stone to the next. Use
some glow in the dark paint to decorate the cemetery a
little...don't over do it, you want it to look macabre.
Make Some Shadows
If you have any spot lights in your yard, why not set
them up in the back of the tombstones. Don't use too
many, and make sure the wires are hidden safely away so
no one trips over them. The lights will create some
shadows in your graveyard and make it look spooky. You
will only need one light for three or four headstones,
so don't over do the light...it won't be scary if you
Get Some Body Parts
Get an old shirt or some gloves and fill them with
newspaper or leaves. Have them hanging out of the burial
mounds, like the dead who are buried there are rising.
You can buy some bones, unless you happen to have a
skeleton already laying around, and place them around
the Tombstone Headstone graveyard you have made in your front
Welcome To The Graveyard
Now if you are a more experienced graveyard maker, you
know exactly what to do. Just keep adding on to your
gory burial scene each year, and before you know it you
will become "The Graveyard" house everyone wants to go
see! You can even add some scary Tombstone Headstone music to your
grave scene to give people the chills when they go by.
It's fun and easy to make a graveyard in your front yard
at Halloween, so give it a try. You can make a project
out of it and get the entire family involved.
