Mother Nature may not always be good to us around the Witching Hour, high winds usually creep up on us, rain falls, and ruins the hours of preparation to decorate your yard for Halloween.  You are not alone, as we have been dealing with these weather conditions for the past few years and finally have decided to do something about it. 

Yes, just like you, we have purchased numerous styrofoam tombstones over the years to decorate our yard for Halloween, only to notice that with each year and with each storm & high winds that come, our styrofoam tombstone have taken a beating.  The always too short stakes that usually come with these styrofoam tombstones are never long enough to hold the tombstones in the ground when a strong wind arises, so you find yourself chasing your tombs down the street.  And, because the winds rock your tombstones back & forth before it actually flies away, the winds are actually breaking the styrofoam away around the stakes.  Yes, you think you have found the solution to fix this by just removing the stake and pushing it into the bottom of the tombstone in another place, but that is just a temporary fix, as the wind will come again, rock your tombstone back & forth, and you’re back to broken styrofoam again.  Now you are left with awesome looking tombstones, with bottoms all broken & torn, and no good place to insert the stakes.  Now what?

We have thought long and hard on this problem and how to correct it, and finally have come up with a solution!  We want to help you!  We have designed three styles of wood tombstones that we are now selling on eBay.  We have spent numerous hours, days, and weeks cutting & sanding these tombstones, getting them ready for you – ready for you to paint the way you want, just in time for Halloween.  Not everyone has the tools, time, or patience to start a project like this, so that is why we are here to help – we love Halloween, and we want to make your Halloween decorating easy.  Each tombstone comes with a wood base, wood screws to attach the base to tombstone, and 7″ metal spikes to hold your tombstone in the ground.

Here is how you can order one or more for yourself:

TIPS FOR DECORATING & PAINTING YOUR TOMBSTONES
Krylon has many spray paints that can assist you in making your tombstones go from unfinished wood to looking great, from “Make it Stone” spray paint to “Glowz” spray paint that actually glows in the dark!  Glowz actually charges with light!  You can, like we are going to do, also take one of these tombstones and put it in your yard by your mailbox and just simply add your “house numbers” to the tombstone with wood glue and then spray the numbers with Krylon Glowz so your street address will glow at night!  (Most craft stores carry wood letters & numbers)

Happy Haunting!

  1. Wow! You guys are just fantastic! Are you familiar with Don Bertino’s old Halloween-L? I think it was what you would call a “listserv”. At any rate, it was this amazing community of Halloween lovers (a lot of them being home haunters). They would love your creations.

    It seems to have dissolved over the years but most of the scurried off to some other parts of the Internet. I’ll see what I can find and report back.

    • THANK YOU for your comment! We were amazed that we are the ONLY ones selling these on eBay! We love Halloween and wish it would last longer than just one day. We’re always thinking of new ways to decorate, and we’re glad that we figured out how to solve the broken tombstone issue – making them is time consuming, but we love doing it. No, we have never heard of Don Bertino before, but would love to hear back from you! Thanks again!

      • I found that mailing list for you. The link is inculded in my latest post (“Halloween List”).

        They allow low key advertising and most of the members are home haunters who would probably love your stuff.

      • THANK YOU FOR SHARING YOUR LINK & FOR BEING A LOYAL FAN OF THEMES N THINGS! WE WILL CHECK IT OUT! CHECK OUT OUR OTHER BLOG FOR OUR DOG, YES WE SAID DOG! http://WWW.NIKITALAND.WORDPRESS.COM OUR LAST POST ON IT WAS ABOUT A TOMBSTONE WE MADE FOR GRANDMA! JUST WANTED TO SHOW EVERYONE HOW COOL A HOMEMADE TOMBSTONE CAN BE WITH A LITTLE IMAGINATION! HAVE A GREAT DAY!
