Here is a tombstone I made using the small foam cooler from the Dollar Tree. Plus a 50 cent cherub from Michaels, a piece of styrofoam from the trash at work, and a small garden angel that I have had in my backyard for years.

If you hadn't told what the materials are, I wouldn't have guessed it was a cooler...

Elza, I used the foam cooler from the dollar tree, a piece of styrofoam aboout 1 1/2 inches thick and about 14"x8", took the top off, turned the cooler upside down on the shhet of foam, and used liquid nails to attach, the used liquid nails to attach the top to the bottom of the cooler, again, used liquid nails to attach the cherub, painted it , set the angel next to it, voila, instant $1.50 cooler!! Of course if you had to buy the foam on the bottom, it woudl cost a bit more. I had to just hand paint the RIP on it, as it was too thin to carve into.

Looks great!I use coolers also this year my christmas angel will sit on top of a joint compound painted one that will be a fog chiller.Hope it works well haven't tested it but I figure last year I used a small bucket as a chiller and it worked ok for my yard.Low ground fog.That this should work better.

I also have some letters made outta card board, I got a Michaels, I could have used the liquid nails, and attached them that way, if I make another one I will do that!, just have to seal them then!

CVS has foam letters in their dollar bins. The Dollar Tree probably carries them too and then you wouldn't have to seal them.

The cherub is actually mouring the loss of doing keg stands since the cooler is gone. kidding...

Great job!
