How to make your own Halloween graveyard
However, in the great fear lexicon, I think graveyards rank right up there with zombies and demons. Without a doubt, if you want to create a spooky environment for your party, a graveyard entryway is the way to go. And what makes a graveyard a graveyard? Tombstones! The best thing about it is that the basic tombstone is actually pretty easy to make, but the decorating possibilities are endless. In fact, it’s a great family activity for pretty much every age. Start a tradition of making new tombstones every year, and pretty soon you’ll have a graveyard that can rival Cypress Lawn Memorial Park.
Here's how we make our tombstones.
And here are some of my favorite clever sayings to put on your tombstones:
Here lies the dentist McGavity, filling up, his last cavity. Gone for good, and a good thing too!
Here lies an atheist, all dressed up with no place to go.
Joke's over, let me out now!
’ll be back...
In life, I was Fred, now all I am, is dead
I told you I was sick!
Died from not forwarding that chain letter (or e-mail / text) to 10 friends
Once you’re over the hill, you pick up speed
Here lies the body of Jonah Drake; stepped on the gas, instead of the brake
