Yeah I know that everyone has this in their website ... well so do I. Making your own tombstones is very easy and a lot more cheaper, and it gives your front yard a spooky look on Halloween !
A few sheets of Pink foam or Styrofoam (I found that Pink Foam is a lot more durable than Styrofoam.)
Pencil/Pen/Writing Utensil of your choice

STEP ONE: First draw your design of the foam.
STEP TWO: Then you need to cut the tombstone out using a wood burner, a hack saw or The Wonder Cutter. WARNING!!: Both the Wonder Cutter and the wood burner get extremely hot use with caution. Hack saws work but they're very messy and make a lot of dust.
STEP THREE: Next draw what you want on the tombstone. After you draw it you can use a wood burner and trace the writing. This makes it look like stone at the end. You can also make designs and cracks in it.
STEP THREE: Last, you need to paint the tombstone. I always start with a flat grey latex paint but you can use whatever color you like. You can also do some shading with a flat black. That's It. You've made your own tombstone!. NOTE: DO NOT USE SPRAY PAINT TO PAINT YOUR TOMBSTONES! This will dissolve the foam. There will be pictures I just haven't put them in yet.
