What You Need to Make a Tombstone for Halloween
To print a template for one of the small tombstones, you’ll need a printer with a color cartridge and printer paper. Of course, you’ll also need the templates themselves! You can find them here: DIY Halloween Decorations – Cemetery
Once you’ve printed a template, you’re ready to assemble the tombstones. For that, you’ll need:
- A good, small pair of scissors
- A glue stick
- Optional: a ruler to make folds
Now, let’s make tombstones!
How to Assemble the Tombstone Boxes
Start by cutting out the tombstones. Fold the box by following the instructions. Feel free to use a ruler to fold the edges around. Apply glue to the triangular white flaps, but not to the rectangular flaps. The box should be able to open if you want to use it for snacks.
Put snacks or candy in the box and close it. Feel free to use a piece of clear tape to prevent the box from opening. Alternatively, you can simply glue the box together and let it adorn the table.
How to Assemble the Decorative Tombstones
In the package, there are also six different tombstones that can create a spooky atmosphere. You can’t put candy in them, but they’re easy to assemble, and you can use them as both table decorations and around the house.
These tombstones are incredibly easy to assemble. Cut them out and fold the small strip at the ends. Attach it at the bottom on both sides. You can also use the tombstones as holders for the ghosts included in the package.
