  1. Halloween Props
    Here's my new set of tombstones and a tomb for storage and transport I made. The tomb is made from plywood, lumber and styrofoam, the tombstones are styrofoam with 3D printed text. Everything is painted with a mixture of paint, caulk, joint compound and sand to give it a stone texture...
  2. Halloween Props
    Hey everyone: I posted asking for help and I love that many people were willing to share their expertise! I changed the design for practicality, and finally worked on a project I’ve had on my bucket list for years - an 8-foot grandfather clock! It’s part of my outdoor display that I add to...
  3. Halloween Props
    Due to time constraints, I’m looking to buy some tombstones rather than make them. Has anyone found any decent ones online? I am looking to get a lot so preferably something reasonably priced. I’m new here and did a search but didn’t find anything so I apologize if this has been posted. Thanks...
  4. Tutorials and Step-By-Step
    Ok, folks -> first tutorial, so be gentle. 😊 Ok, to be clear -> these are intended to last a very long time, but to really be seen at a distance. While some will come out quite nice (they go up front), most will have anomalies; which I find kinda cool. I use them primarily as fillers, but you...
  5. Halloween Props
    Hey guys, I have 5 large tombstones that I put in the front yard every year. Prior to now, I wasn't very worried as the grass was mostly weeds. This year I did major landscaping and got new flower beds and sod. I don't want to kill the grass. I usually leave my decor up all month in October (4...
  6. General Halloween
    Over the years this forum has been chock full of some incredibly talented Halloween enthusiasts who've created unbelievable displays. I can't imagine all of you started so boldly though. We have a decade+ old thread somewhere on the forum about showing off your graveyards/haunts, but I wanted to...
  7. Garden of Stones

    I don't care much for frivolous embellishments, witty epitaphs, or statues of grandeur. What I simply wanted were modest stones that would become the background to a story; stones that would fade into the night and not overshadow the real meaning of the display. This was my first attempt at...
  8. Halloween Props
    Okay so this year I decided to improve my tombstones. They may not be as fancy as some of you other haunters here, but I'm pretty happy with how they are turning out. So far I have finished 8 of them and have at least 4 more to go. Being on a budget I used 4' x 8' x 1&1/2" white ridged foam...
  9. For Sale/Trade By Individuals
    I am downsizing my house and have no room for Halloween stuff. Free tombstones for local pickup in Sudbury MA, USA. Approximately 4 feet tall. Sorry to post in a second forum but I wanted to get extra visibility to see if I can find them a home before they hit the landfill.

  11. Member Introduction
    This is my first post. When I first signed up to the forum I had a slight family problem. Now I'm single and back to learn some spooky ideals from you all. I have some tombstones, about 15 I think, that I made out of the cutouts of the insulated metal doors and painted. I have a few things but...
  12. For Sale/Trade By Individuals
    It my breaks my heart, but due to health issues and relocation, it is time for me to sell my vintage Halloween funeral hearse and skeleton horse. Handcrafted by a superior carpenter, the carriage comes apart for easy storage. The lights work! Skeleton horse makes a scary noise and eyes light up...
  13. Wanted to Buy
    I want to craft a custom tombstone featuring four angel statues I have. Looking for someone who can make three dimensional stones and lives in or near Virginia if possible. I like my stones realistic and am very picky. Think you are up to the challenge?
  14. Halloween Props
    In the past the front row of my graveyard was a series of dollar store coolers turned upside down. For some I put the lid on the bottom for a bit more decoration. They hid the lights that illuminated the rows behind them. The trouble with these came at night because they were essentially dead...
  15. Tutorials and Step-By-Step
    Partsman's Note: I'm proud to post up Keeba's Tombstone Tutorial, Keeba was the first of my inspirations for making my own tombstones. I've had many great teachers since then, many on this very forum, but Keeba was the first. I hope you all enjoy this as much as I have. Unfortunately I cannot...
  16. Tutorials and Step-By-Step
    In the summer I posted two proof-of-concept videos about pneumatic props that could switch back and forth between being Christmas or Halloween decorations. I wanted them for a "Christmas vs. Halloween" display during trick-or-treat. I thought I should show the end result--not great but...
  17. Halloween Props
    I’m thinking about getting a airbrush unit for doing tombstones and a few other items. Up to this point I have been using tinted Drilock and washing a paint over that. The problem is all the stones basically look the same. Any good techniques or tips of using a airbrush to add some character to...
  18. Halloween Props
    So this year I purchased a rotting corpse from Distortions Unlimited and I needed a coffin to display it. Let me just say, there are NOOOO decent coffins to purchase retail! I searched because I didn’t want to build it this year. Well, I ended up having to build one. I’m glad I did because it...
