Oak Lane Cemetery
All of us have a bunch of store bought Styrofoam tombstones. Whether your a veteran haunter, or just getting started, we all buy them at some point. I started out with a bunch of them and after learning to make better ones I've been gradually phasing out all of the store bought ones, most of which just have "RIP" on them. lol I do have one or two larger ones I plan on keeping though, especially the one I made over in this video. It's big and has a decent looking design, but suffers from a lack of support for staking and it's pretty thin and unrealistic looking in that aspect. I've had it for 14 years and it's in a lot of Halloween photos with my kids when they were younger so it has some sentimental value too. I wanted to repair, upgrade and improve it so it can continue to be in our display for years to come. I doubled it's thickness, added pvc pipe inserts for staking and did a full repaint on it. A pretty simple project that didn't take a lot of time or materials to do. Now it's more realistic looking, sturdier, and a lot simpler to set up.
