13 Days of Halloween: Cardboard Tombstone!

By Anonymous

Looking for a festive way to decorate your yard this Halloween season? Try a cardboard tombstone!


  • Cardboard
  • Scissors, exacto knife or box cutter
  • Marker
  • Tape or hot glue gun


  • Spray Paint

Step One:

Sketch out the shape of the grave stone on to the cardboard. We went for more of a decayed look. You can be as creative as you'd like!

Step Two:

Cut the cardboard along the sketch using either an exacto knife or a box cutter. Use the first cutout as a pattern to trace and cut another piece that will act as the rear of the headstone. Also cut a strip of cardboard, this will act as the sides of your grave stone.

Step Three:

Tape it all together and enjoy!

Optional Step Four:

Take it one step further and you can spray paint the grave stone dark grey, allowing you to get even more creative. You can also add a name or an epitaph to make it even creepier.
