Harrison 36, thanks. The moss was a last minute addition.

The window boards are just made out of white styrofoam and painted with a brown latex paint that I got from the oops bin at Home Depot. They are OK, but it was the first project I ever did. I think the blue foam (which I have finally found in Southern California) would be better so I plan on re-doing them. I would also like to use some of the paint techniques some of the people here have used.

That is pretty good. I just don't get why there is crime scene tape around a cemetery.

You think your cemetery is bad? Take a look at mine!

Last year was our 1st attempt at building a cemetery. We did not get everything done & were running terribly behind schedule but we winged it with what we had gotten done.

We made a 5 ft. high fence, did not get the finials on it, we built pillars but did not get all the decorative stuff on them. The tombstones got cut & a coat of paint on them but no epitaphs yet. So for 2008 we plan on extending the cemetery fence & finishing some of this stuff up.

There are also expansion plans for 2009, we have a pretty big front yard & will do work on the cemetery each year. We want to add a hearse & a mausoleum & have some other things. As soon as I have time I would like to start making some fancier styrofoam tombstones.

For the others that posted on this thread I think your cemeteries are great from the smallest to the most dramatic ya gotta start somewhere, just add a little more each year. I would love to have lanturns & zombies coming out of the ground but man it takes time & $$$$$$.

P.S. Wanted to mention, it make look weird how my cemetery is sitting but we have a huge & very high row of 50 large evergreens in the very front of our lawn, like a privacy fence. SO we set our cemetery where it is so when people were standing in line to get in our house it was easy to view & enjoy the cemetery, plus we had it set that way also cause kids run from house to house on the lawns so one side of the fence panels was right up against the flower beds & close to where the electrical outlets are on the outside of the house.

I don't understand the date on there. Does that say September 29 2008? That has not even come yet.

A lot of Halloween yard displays I see make no sense. I see demons, evil clowns and other ghouls in cemeteries. There were old legends about demons and things hanging around in cemeteries. But still, some monsters in cemeteries make no sense. What is an evil clown doing in a cemetery? What is Frankensteins monster doing in a cemetery? And why is this cemetery in a haunted houses front yard? Front yards do not have cemeteries in them. I could go on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on........
