Halloween tombstone decoration
Create a creepy, cool Halloween tombstone decoration for your Halloween party. It can be used as a party platter, treat bag display, or hold party favors. It is fairly easy to create with just a few items and some paint. It will be the talk of the party because it is different than anything you can buy. I love finding things around the house to use for my creations. This Halloween tombstone’s foundation is a lidded shipping box I received from an online store. I love these kinds of boxes because they are so sturdy and versatile for my designs. If you don’t have a lidded shipping box, you can use any type of sturdy box as the base.

Materials Needed for the Halloween Tombstone

  • Lidded Shipping Box
  • Plastic Mask
  • Cheese Cloth
  • Foam Core Board
  • Granite Paint

mask
Cut a piece of foam core the size of the tombstone and attach with a glue gun. If using a mask like the one shown here, draw a border around the face and cut off the excess.
