Halloween props and costumes can get pretty pricey, so I have decided o take my love of DIY and Pintrest and put together a new section for you, Halloween/Horror DIY. I will continue to do these past the Halloween season.
The first Halloween DIY project I would like to share with you are “creepy tombstones”. Similar props you would purchase in store can run upwards of over $20, but through Pintrest scouring, I have found a tutorial from Dave Lowe Design that will cost you under $15! The beauty behind this project, besides saving money, you don’t have to be Martha Stewart to make these.
- Overnight shipping boxes (FREE at the post office or FedEx store)
- Name plate (made on your computer at home, $2 or less at Officemax)
- Foamcore ($3.99 for a large sheet at any craft store)
- Scotch tape ($1-$2)
- Paint of your choice
- Faux Stone spray ($5 at craft store)
As long as the mistakes are to a minimum, you will get more than one tombstone out of these materials (except for the box, but they are free).
