DIY Tombstones for Halloween Decor


   If you're looking upon some easy DIY Halloween Decor you can make from recyclables, check out these fun Tombstones made from cereal boxes!

   To make these faux stones, you need cereal boxes, scissors to cut the shape, tape to hold it down, and paint. You begin by cutting the front and back of the box, to make a round top. Make sure to leave the sides, so you can fold them down into the the top to form the round edging. Once formed, tape the tops, and you can begin painting! I used silver spray paint and then went over it with a Terra Cotta grey color of acrylic paints, because that's what I had on hand. 

   I think these would look even better with the stone textured spray paint, but use whatever you have on hand, to make this project cheap and easy! Once the faux stone-colored paint dried, I used black acrylic paint to write the words R.I.P. and Rest in Peace. Feel free to write something more clever if you make your own 🤣

    If you look at the stones closely, I feel like I did a pretty sloppy job, but they still turned out cute! These tombstones make some fun indoor Halloween decor for your house, and you can dress them up any way you like. I wouldn't recommend putting them outside, unless you live in a warmer dry climate, but they would look awesome as front yard decor! 

    If you decide to entertain yourself and make these fun little tombstones, please feel free to let me know! I would love to see how they turn out! 🤍
