Back Yard Grave Yard

Today I've been getting some of the Halloween decorations done for the garden and these polystyrene graves were definitely my fave task of the day :)

I spotted something similar in the pound shop last week and was instantly inspired :)

They were really simple and fun to do...

What you'll need:

  • Polystyrene sheets
  • Black Marker
  • Craft knife
  • Paint

First take a polystyrene board and draw on your grave stone design

 Using a craft or stanley knife cut around the outline of your grave stone

Chisel out any detailing using the tip of your craft knife.

Warning: This bit get MESSY!!!

Although Mini King certainly enjoyed covering the books his book - and my carpet in "snow" hehe

Once you have finished cutting out paint using a sponge (or spray paint)

Plonk them in your garden along with some wooden crosses, dead flowers and eerie lighting and enjoy spooking your guests :)
