  4. Static: What to put on custom gravestones?

    Halloween Props
    Thanks for all your advice on how to engrave my gravestones after I already painted them. I went with the drimmel and a crafting edger to carve into them and just repainted over the carved out area. They're turning out pretty well! (pictures soon) I need some ideas on what to put on the rest...

  10. Electronic/Software: Spirit/Halloween City props integrated into gravestones

    Halloween Props
    After Halloween I tend to go to Halloween city or Spirit to find clearance items that I can use to animate some of the gravestones.

    Halloween Props
    How do you keep your gravestones made out of styrofoam from blowing away. I live at the top of a hill in the country and it is windy 24-7? This is probably old hat to many of you, so please bear with me!:confused:
